The Clipse's Manager Busted for Running $10 Million Drug Ring
Big things are happening down in Norfolk, Virginia. Really big things.
Anthony "Geezy" Gonzalez, who was the manager of hip-hop duo The Clipse, has been arrested and charged with 82 counts of drug trafficking stemming from his being the leader of a $10 million drug ring.
The drug ring, according to the Virginian-Pilot, distributed more than a ton of marijuana and more than 100 pounds of cocaine since 2003 throughout Virginia and at least six other states and parts of South America.
Gonzalez, 34, who managed the rap group until 2006, reportedly turned himself into police in Miami on Tuesday.
He was the owner of Encore Lounge nightclub located in Norfolk, Virginia. According to police, he bought the club in November 2007 from an unidentified co-conspirator for 40 pounds of marijuana and about $80,000 in drug proceeds. The nightclub was shut down closed earlier this year after more than 100 incidents of violence, shootings, drug dealing and disorderly conduct.
Now we find who is allegedly supplying the coke to that famous record producer.
