Long Beach Rapper “Mario C” Facing 3 Years for Threating Mayor on Twitter

Long Beach rapper Mario C admits that his online trolling may have gone too far, as he’s now facing years in prison for threatening Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia.

Back in July, Mario, real name Mario Chheng, wrote, “Run up into your city halls n let off a thousand rounds.” A few hours later, he wrote, “I’ll join lbpd soon. N I’ll murk our mayor within a year.”

Chheng told the Long Beach Post that he was just trolling and didn’t intend to do anything to the mayor. He explained, “I was saying it, but there was no real intent behind it. On the scale of probability it wasn’t anywhere near above the 50 percent mark. It was just more so having the balls to say it, but at the same time I’m saying it behind a computer screen, so there’s no real balls involved.”

During his interview with the Post, Chheng admitted that he was annoyed that his posts weren’t getting the attention he wanted, so he decided to take his trolling to a different level. He stated, “I feel like people are watching my stuff but nobody is responding or reacting, so I’m just thinking it’s kind of weird, so it kind of forces me to say more and more outrageous stuff — just to get a reaction. I got a reaction. It just wasn’t the one I was expecting.”

The rapper also admitted that he was jumped by a group of people after previously claiming to be “the biggest Crip in Long Beach.”

Chheng was released on $50,000 bond after being charged with charged with one felony count of threatening a public official, which faces up to three years in prison.

Juelz Santana Arrested After Bringing Loaded Gun to Airport

Juelz Santana was arrested on drug and weapon charges Monday, two days after the rapper fled a Newark airport after TSA discovered a loaded gun in his carry-on bag.

Santana surrendered to police following the incident. The Dipset rapper faces unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance as well as an unspecified federal warrant, TMZ reports.

NJ.com added that Santana was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft, even though the rapper didn’t pass the security checkpoint.

The rapper was scheduled to board a flight from Newark to San Francisco Friday night when, after leaving two bags and identification at a security checkpoint, he “paced the area nervously and requested that several individuals screen his bag expeditiously because he was going to miss his flight,” the criminal complaint said.

Juelz Santana was arrested on drug and weapon charges Monday, two days after the rapper fled a Newark airport after TSA discovered a loaded gun in his carry-on bag.

 

Upon checking the bags, TSA found a loaded Derringer 38-caliber handgun as well as the still-unspecified controlled substance. Santana then fled the airport, hailed a cab and remained on the lam until Port Authority Police arrested him early Monday morning.

As a convicted felon – in 2011, a raid on the rapper’s New Jersey studio yielded two loaded handguns and 17 bags of marijuana – the “possession of a firearm by a convicted felon” charge alone carries a possible 10-year sentence.

Eminem Attacks Trump in BET Cypher

Never one to be shy with his words, Eminem made a blistering return to the music scene via a passionate takedown of Donald Trump in a freestyle broadcast on BET’s Hip-Hop Awards.

Filmed Friday in his hometown of Detroit, the Grammy Award winner went after the president in a nearly five-minute cypher performance, where he referred to Trump as a “bitch,” and called him out for his handling of Charlottesville, and his recent attack on the NFL player protests.

In what Eminem has deemed “The Storm,” he rapped, “This is his form of distraction/ Plus, he gets an enormous reaction/ When he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that/ Instead of talking about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/ All of these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”

Trump wasn’t the rapper’s only target, as he had a strong message for people who claim to be supporters of both men. “And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his,” he continued. “I’m drawing in the sand a line/ You’re either for or against/ And if you can’t decide who you like more in your split/ On who you should stand beside/ I’ll do it for you with this/ F— you.”

Raising his fist in the air, a move he says is for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the national anthem kneeling movement, Eminem concluded, “The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country, but we f—ing hate Trump.”
