Police raided Bizzy Banks’ apartment and found two kilos of weed, $2,750 in cash and a handgun loaded with hollow bullets. The Brooklyn rapper Bizzy Banks was thrown into a prison cell in New Jersey on January 7.
According to local broadcaster The Daily Voice, a SWAT raid was carried out on the area, and following the arrest of Bizzy Banks, the Brooklyn rapper was charged with drugs, weapons and money laundering.
The 23-year-old rapper, real name Majesty Blessed Moses, was previously jailed in 2019 on unknown charges. Then Pop Smoke took him under his patronage and his ascent began.
Bizzy opened up about his family’s legal issues in a 2020 interview with DJ Booth:
“… My older brother and my father going to jail when I was younger, it just made me become older at a young age because those two were the only two males in the house really,” he explained. “It was [just] me and my mom after a while. So, after that, I had to get on my gritty shit. Growing up where I’m from, you can’t slack in no way possible. I had to look at life differently.”
Bizzy is currently held without bail, according to the Bergen County inmate database.
Detective Captain Michael Antista with the Hackensack Police Department told the Daily Voice that Bizzy is being held at Bergen County Jail, where he awaits his first court appearance. It is unclear how Bizzy Banks, who is facing many charges including an illegal weapon, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as money laundering, will come out of this.
