These days people are willing to incriminate themselves, so who needs investigators?
It’s rude to call people stupid, but how else would you describe a person that hires a professional film crew to document their crimes? Apparently looking for the type of street credibility that money or Meek Mill features can’t buy, rapper Michael (Rab) Garrett allegedly hired a film crew to accompany him across state lines to film a drug deal. Instead of scoring a platinum record, Garrett was able to secure a shiny pair of handcuffs and a court date after an associate was busted during a car stop by Pennsylvania state troopers and ratted him out. Yikes. Don’t tell me who tellin’. Actually Garrett’s tellin’. On himself.
An aspiring rapper should have left the camera crew in Brooklyn instead of taking them along on a road trip to Pennsylvania to allegedly peddle drugs.
The reality of the show they videotaped is Michael (Rab) Garrett now faces 10 years to life in prison after an associate was busted during a car stop by Pennsylvania state troopers and ratted him out, according to court papers. Garrett, the reputed leader of a Brownsville-based crew called Together Forever Mafia, had hired the camera crew in January 2012, which later produced a video entitled “The Team Heads out to Binghamton, N.Y. and Scranton, PA.,” followed by footage of two cars leaving Brooklyn, court papers state.
The video, which was seized pursuant to a federal subpoena, next shows a screenshot of a local newspaper article describing the car stop and arrest of its occupants for possession of heroin called “Monster Mash” and marijuana.
