The group allegedly ran a multimillion-dollar drug operation and moved more than 100 kilos of opioids and fentanyl, a powerful and extremely dangerous opioid, from the West Coast to the East Coast, selling it across Long Island and New Jersey, officials said.

Hours before his arrest on Thursday night, the rapper posted a cryptic note on his Instagram story, writing: ‘N***** move cautious never worried,’ with a prayer emoji and a crown emoji. 

He was photographed arriving at Citi Field with an entourage hours before the bust.   

The rapper was charged along with five others; Anthony Cyntje, a New Jersey correction officer, Anthony Leonardi, his brother Robert Leonardi, Brian Sullivan, and Kavaughn Wiggins. 

It’s unclear how long he has been under FBI investigation or if anyone else has been implicated in the probe.  

FBI agent Michael Driscoll said: ‘The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become.’ 

The rapper has been arrested in the past; in 2017, he was charged with drunk driving, reckless endangerment, aggravate unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, illegally changing lanes, and drag racing.
