Designer puppies, private jets and a Jamaican villa: Chicago rappers charged in Massachusetts with elaborate fraud scheme As far back as 2017.... YIKES Chicago drill rapper G Herbo grew up on the Southeast Side in an area dubbed “Terror Town,” a far cry from the world of private jets, tropical villas and designer puppies. His youth, as described in his blunt lyrics, was spent dodging bullets and hanging out on the violent streets near 79th Street and Essex Avenue. But as his star rose with collaborations with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Chief Keef and money rolled in, Herbo, whose real name is Herbert Wright III, said he started to realize it was time to move on from his past and embrace his newfound fame. “Honestly I’m just trying to capitalize and build other people up,” Wright told the Tribune in an interview last year. “I’m a firm believer that life is what you make it. ... I been broke so many times. I was supposed to be dead. I was supposed to be in jail. But I’m still here.” Now Wright, 25, finds himself with new difficulties. He has been named in a federal fraud case brought in Massachusetts alleging he, his music promoter and other members of his crew used stolen identifications to charge more than a million dollars’ worth of exotic services over a four-year period. rest of article in the link.
