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.

SILive.com 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.
