Ra Diggs, a Brooklyn rapper in a group with Uncle Murda and Waka Flock Flame, has been arrested and charged in a federal indictment for dealing drugs out of the Gowanus Houses since 2008.
Ra Diggs, born Ronald Herron, was arrested outside of Club Amnesia in New York on Tuesday evening (October 5th) and was one of eight men charged with a variety of crimes, for allegedly flooding the Gowanus Houses with drugs.
According to the New York Daily News, police started an undercover investigation in 2008 and made over 65 drug buys from Gowanus and his violent crew, which has also been linked to four murders in the Gowanus Houses.
Federal authorities are using Ra Diggs’ tweets and YouTube videos to make various allegations against Ra Diggs.
Ra Diggs, who beat a murder rap in 2002, is also being investigated for his role in up to four murders, although no one has been charged with a crime in regards to the slayings.
