Juelz Santana’s Studio Raided, Skull Gang Rapper Arrested
Last Thursday (January 20), police raided rapper Juelz Santana’s recording studio, “Santana’s World”, in Bergenfield, New Jersey, reported New York’s Daily News writer, Michael J. Feeney on his blog mfeenz.blogspot.com.
During the bust, a member of Juelz’s Skull Gang crew, Hynief, was taken into custody for drug charges.
Hynief, real name Toby M. Raynor, 24, was arrested on two charges of Distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance after a 10-month undercover investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Gang Unit, according to MTV News . The investigation started when Raynor sold marijuana to two undercover officers over the summer.
Hynief was arrested and sent to the Bergen County Jail, his bail being set for $50,000. The situation caused Juelz to miss a show in Chi-Town the following night, but he did announce via Twitter that Hynief had been released over the weekend. “A! @HYNIEFSKULLGANG bailed out #whoooaaaaa.”
He also apologized to fans for missing the show. “A! If it ant 1 thing it’s another smh sorry to all the people in chi-town that came out last night I couldn’t make It,” he wrote. “Trouble wit the law.”
During the raid of the studio, officers also found two fully-loaded 9mm handguns as well as marijuana and boxes of ammunition. Gun charges have yet to brought up.
