Days after a massive gang sweep took place in Boston, Massachusetts, the Boston Globe has released a news report, which details the connections Raymond “Benzino” Scott had with a handful of those arrested during the sweep.
According to the publication, the former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star had “artistic connections” to those in the Columbia Point Dawgs, the gang targeted in the sweep.
Among those arrested was Willie “Sco” Berry, a man the Boston Globe reports Benzino directed and appeared in music videos with. Berry is reportedly a leader of a Columbia Point Dawgs crew.
In a statement released by his lawyer, Martin Leppo, Benzino chose not to address the recent sweep and his alleged affiliations with those in the Columbia Point Dawgs.
“I deal with lots of people in the music industry, and beyond that I will not make any further comment,’’ Benzino said in a statement released through his lawyer, according to the Boston Globe.
The Columbia Point Dawgs are said to have been involved in drug trafficking, and are allegedly linked to murders and numerous non-fatal shootings in the Boston area.
