West Coast rapper Charles Tony Williamson, 33, more popularly known as Guerrilla Black, was sentenced to 9 years in prison on Friday for credit card fraud.
has learned that the Compton based rapper has pled guilty to the illegal purchase of over 27,000 stolen credit card numbers that he attained between 2011 and 2012 from two well known hackers. One report from the Seattle PD Blotter
from earlier this year claims that a near $150,000 in fraud loss had been attributed to just 134 of the over 27,000 cards stolen.
Guerrilla Black will actually have to serve to 110 months of prison time followed by 5 years of supervision after his release.
Black became famous for a short time in 2004 with his hit “Compton” and was recognized by many to be a West Coast knockoff of Biggie Smalls. If you’re not familiar with him take a look at this video.
