AR-Ab 45 Receives 45-Year Prison Sentence in Drug Trafficking Case


According to the Philadelphia Inquirer , the 38-year-old artist—legal name Abdul West—was sentenced Thursday to 45 years in prison for his alleged role in a drug-trafficking ring .


Prosecutors accused the rapper of turning his Original Block Hustlaz (OBH) record label into a large-scale trafficking ring that was implicated in at least one murder.


AR-Ab, who has received co-signs from Drake, Swizz Beatz, and Birdman, had established a tough persona that was reinforced by profanity-filled, violent lyrics.


The Inquirer reports the rapper’s proactive music was a major talking point in the prosecution’s argument, as they believed AR-Ab’s lyrics were more than just a marketing ploy.


West made it clear not just in his lyrics but in his social media that people should be afraid of him and his willingness to resort to violence.”
