After being arrested back in February and arraigned on four felony charges of pimping and pandering, Ramsay The Great has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. The Los Angeles rapper was given the sentencing after being found guilty of forcing women on the Internet to prostitute themselves.
Reports say that the 25-year-old hip-hop producer made thousands of dollars each week while pimping out women from Orange County he found on social media sites, using his own popularity and fame to coax them.
Four women accused Ramsay of pimping them, while one in particular claimed she was his girlfriend at the time. She told authorities he once threatened her with a gun when she said she revealed her desire to quit and forced her to make $1,000 a day.
The young rapper pled guilty to the four felony charges, as well as one count of human trafficking. He also pled guilty to one count of assault with a firearm in the case.
This isn’t the first time that Ramsay has found himself getting controversial with the law, as he previously was accused of calling the cops on Chief Keef after the Chicago rapper allegedly assaulted him. Ramsay was deemed a “snitch” by the Chicago rapper’s fan base and entourage, but he stood by his decision to contact authorities.
