The New York rapper's recent arrest continues to develop.

On Tuesday (May 16), Sheff G found himself in the middle of a massive arrest, charged alongside 32 other suspected gang members. As part of the gang bust, prosecutors alleged that these are members of the 8 Trey Crips and the 9 Ways and carried out dozens of shootings and at least one murder. Moreover, they maintain that the 140-count indictment stems from their attempt to consolidate power across territories. However, there is one event in particular that prosecutors believe strongly indicates Sheff and Sleepy Hallow's involvement. Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez believes they reportedly treated eight alleged members to a Manhattan steakhouse dinner following a successful hit.

Specifically, they stand accused of celebrating a 2020 shooting that left Theodore Senior dead at 23, plus five other injuries, at Prospect Lefferts Gardens. According to NYPD Deputy Chief Jason Savino, Sheff G and Hallow donned matching outfits at the occasion. Also, they allegedly bestowed a custom gold necklace with the victim's nickname etched onto it to a particular guest of honor at the dinner. The victims reportedly belonged to the Folk Nation gang, and Sheff confirmed the hit via text and also ordered another one because of a shooting at his house. Allegedly, his sister also participated in the attack by letting her brother know via text that a Folk Nation member "had to get hit or killed."

"The senseless gun violence, allegedly committed by these defendants, terrorized our neighbors for years and left more than a dozen people with serious injuries," Gonzalez remarked according to ABC7. "It is distressing to know that some of the violence was allegedly fueled by a young man who used money he made from a successful music career to allegedly pay for and encourage acts of violence. Sheff G became a prominent member of this gang and became central to our investigation. Sheff G used a lot of the money that he earned to facilitate further gang activity. He encouraged gang members to participate in violent crimes."

Meanwhile, this case is all the more worrisome considering that the two Brooklyn drill rappers just got out of prison. Still, these are big charges to face, especially after such a long time behind bars. The Brooklyn D.A. also made it clear that not a "single lyric" contributed to their case against the rappers and their colleagues.
