Shyheim Arrested Following Police Raid In Staten Island

A raid made on behalf of the Staten Island Gang Squad finds drugs and a revolver in the apartment of Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Shyheim.

A police raid in Staten Island, which took place late last week, has resulted in the arrest of rapper and Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Shyheim. reports that the Staten Island Gang Squad used a warrant to search Shyheim’s home and as a result they found a .32 caliber Serrifile Inc. Terrier One revolver, heroin, a Xanax pill, and other drug paraphernalia hidden in various places in the rapper’s apartment.

As a result of the Staten Island Gang Squad's findings, Shyheim was hit with a handful of charges during arraignment including second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Over a decade ago, Shyheim found himself in a similar situation when he served close to a year and a half in prison after being convicted of attempted robbery in 2002.

Shyheim garnered a name for himself at quite the early age with the release of his debut album AKA The Rugged Child, which dropped when the rapper was just a teen. He’s currently being held on $10,000 bail until his appearance in court next week.

    He is just another waster. Only dummies throw away any talent or opportunities that come their way. Raekwon will be laughing somewhere counting his money.

    Everything that Jay-Z raps about is based on the actual life of Shyheim. Jay never committed a crime. We don't beleive the fake stories about him trafficing coke through maryland. He didn't do any of that. When his mother and sister were starving at home, he just moped around.
