Feds bust suspected Ecstasy drug network centered around Bay Area rap label
http://www.insidebayarea.com/news/ci_20469326...

Twenty-five individuals, many of them rappers associated with one of the Bay Area's largest entertainment labels known as "Thizz Entertainment," have been arrested as part of a major nationwide drug trafficking ring focused on Ecstasy, according to a federal prosecutor.

Agents seized about 45,000 Ecstasy pills, 4 pounds of crack cocaine, a half pound of heroin and $200,000 in suspected drug profits, and forfeited about 230 acres of property valued at about $1 million. The suspects, from Vallejo, Stockton, Oakland, Fairfield, Los Angeles, New York and Oklahoma City, were arrested Thursday, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said.

The investigation, led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, uncovered a network of drug distributors centered in Vallejo's Crest neighborhood, across Highway 37 from the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom theme park.

Thizz Entertainment was started in 1996 by Andre Hicks, a Vallejo rapper who went by Mac Dre. The word "thizz" derived from the feeling one feels while on MDMA, or ecstasy. On November 1, 2004, Mac Dre was shot and killed after a performance in Kansas City, Mo., which started a brief Vallejo-Kansas City rap war.

FINALLY... Law Enforcement is doing its job. Hopefully, this is the beginning of cleaning up the Country Club Crest of this never-ending vicious cycle of shootings and drug-dealings. Is this the real reason why certain people or forces connected to Vallejo always never want to do anything positive for this neighborhood? There should be a major investigation immediately as to the facts surrounding the drug trade in Vallejo and the Country Club Crest specifically.

Well, maybe that will explain to some that the raids on the MMD's were not simply performed out of spite, as assumed, but due to actual connections to the criminal element nesting in Vallejo. Money laundering anyone?

All this drug clean up in our town will do wonders for the recall of Gomes and Brown. Too bad we could not add Sampayan to the effort.

The Feds drug bust is not in the Vallejo newspaper online yet. It should be. And will this new Public Safety Review Committee tomorrow be acknowledging this news and inquiring about the details, whether VPD was involved with the Feds, or was it only the DEA in on it? Inquiring minds want to know.

Vallejo rappers charged in Ecstasy ring
http://blog.sfgate.com/crime/2012/04/24/valle...

Several Vallejo rappers with ties to the record label founded by slain rap artist Andre “Mac Dre” Hicks have been charged in federal court with drug offenses for allegedly being part of a wide-ranging Ecstasy trafficking ring, authorities said Tuesday.

Federal agents arrested 25 people in Vallejo, Fairfield, Oakland, Stockton, Los Angeles, New York and Oklahoma City.

Some are associates of Thizz Entertainment, the record label founded by Hicks, who was shot dead in 2004 in Kansas City, Mo., federal investigators said. Thizz has its origins in a Vallejo bank-robbery ring known as the Romper Room Gang, authorities said.

During the investigation, agents seized 45,000 Ecstasy pills, four pounds of crack cocaine, a half pound of heroin,$200,000 in suspected drug money and two Audi automobiles, each worth at least $50,000.

The case focused on drug distributors based in the Crest neighborhood of Vallejo, which is known for narcotics activity and violence, Special Agent Brian Nehring of the Drug Enforcement Administration wrote in an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Sacramento. The drugs were transported outside the state, he said.

Lyrics of many Thizz artists “glorify and promote the use and distribution of MDMA pills,” Nehring wrote, referring to Ecstasy.

Among those charged is Michael Lott, a rap artist also known as “Miami the Most,” who helped take over Thizz after Hicks was killed, authorities said. Other rappers charged include Major “Dubee” Norton, Gaylord “Geezy” Franklin and Bruce “Little Bruce” Thurmon.

The bastards should be taken to a field and shot. Ecstasy is the worst of all drugs. Think of all the permanent brain damage that has been caused in young kids. Thizz nation bastards.

I am so happy for the Crest people and all of Vallejo once we get this drug business cleaned up despite the wishes of our council to just keep getting the tax money no matter what.

Thizz Entertainment - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thizz_Entertainm...

Hope somebody refers this to City Council to demonstrate to them the impact that this thuggery set of people, which started off as the Romper Room Gang in the Crest robbing local banks, evolved into this monster of a destructive force nationwide. Long past time that the Country Club Crest get the attention it deserves to finally cleanup that neighborhood. That and the demise of Redevelopment should force the Vallejo authorities to give the residents there its full attention to develop properly.

Note to Stephanie Gomes, Marti Brown, and Bob Sampayan:
"According to documents attached to the criminal complaints, many of the defendants ALSO WERE INVOLVED IN SALES OF MARIJUANA THROUGH ASSOCIATIONS WITH VARIOUS MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES IN VALLEJO. Other illegal drugs allegedly sold to informants were heroin, cocaine and Ecstasy."
Not good news for you folks here, too bad we cannot recall Sampayan with Gomes and Brown. Good job law enforcement all around.

GEE - This is what these cows in the "moooosic" industry do, but somehow get away with. This is a clear indictment of the Illuminati and its partnering with these type of people. And people say there isn't anything Satanic about the "moooosic" industry? Wish somebody on the City Council would have the balls to propose a city ordinance banning rap "moooosic" in this town.

The men in white jackets will be coming for YOU. Get a life.

Some of these are associates of Foster Hicks. Mac DRE was his nephew and his son, well let's just say Hicks should have stayed home and raised his kids instead of being a lousy councilman or maybe he is the reason why no one on the council now can get police information for fear of leaks.

Foster Hicks signing on for a recall of Gomes and Brown? What a GD joke.
