Guerilla Black has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison on charges of credit card fraud, according to karencivil.com.
Upon Black's release from prison, he is also scheduled to face five years of supervision.
On July 9, Guerilla Black pleaded guilty to a series of charges dealing with fraud and theft. The rapper, perhaps best known for his Beenie Man-assisted hit, 2004's "Compton," was reportedly facing charges of aggravated identity theft, access device fraud, bank fraud and federal conspiracy as well as unauthorized access to a protected computer to facilitate fraud.
It has been reported that Black had access to over $150,000 of stolen money through a credit card fraud scheme. Black allegedly purchased credit card numbers from hackers in Seattle, Washington.
When Guerilla Black's "Compton" hit reached outlets, he was critiqued and applauded by detractors and fans alike for a style and voice that looked and sounded similar to Notorious B.I.G.'s. His debut album, 2004's Guerilla City, featured Nate Dogg, Mario Winans and Jazze Pha. "Compton" can be seen and heard below.
