Interscope denied taking part in any drug-related operations.
“The information being reported in the press regarding Interscope Records‘ involvement with the ongoing criminal prosecution of James Rosemond is both erroneous and completely unsupported.”
“Interscope Records has been informed by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York that there is no evidence that any employee of UMG or Interscope Records had any involvement in the drug trafficking ring being prosecuted by that office, nor any knowledge of the contents of any of the packages that were purportedly shipped to its offices.”
The statement goes on to say,
“Further, neither UMG nor Interscope Record are a subject or target of the investigation. UMG and Interscope will continue to cooperate with the United States Attorney’s Office regarding this matter.”
New Orleans rapper B.G. was indicted by a federal grand jury on Thursday on gun and conspiracy charges.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said the former Hot Boy faces two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.
If convicted, B.G., real name Christopher Dorsey, could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the gun charges and up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine on the conspiracy charge.
The charges stem from a 2009 traffic stop, where officers recovered three guns, two of the guns were reported stolen.
B.G. was arrested along with two others, Demounde Pollard and Jerod Fedison.
According to reports, B.G. conspired to obstruct justice by “inducing Demounde Pollard to sign a false affidavit attesting that Dorsey did not possess three firearms on Nov. 3, 2009.”
Letten stated that, both Pollard and Fedison have pleaded guilty in the case and are awaiting sentencing.
