Rapper Ra Diggs Found Guilty Of Three Murders, Drug Trafficking

Uncle Murda was among those who testified at the trial of Ra Diggs, who is said to be a Bloods gang leader.

Rapper Ra Diggs was found guilty of three murders and drug trafficking by a federal jury yesterday (June 26), according to The New York Times.

The 32-year-old was found guilty of all 21 counts he was facing, which also included racketeering.

The trail took place in Federal District Court in Brooklyn and featured testimony from rapper Uncle Murda, among others, the story says.

During his trial, Ra Diggs said that he joined the Bloods street gang when he was 14 while in a juvenile detention facility on an armed robbery charge.  

Diggs’ sentencing is slated for October 1.

The rapper had been acquitted in state court of one of the murders he was found guilty of yesterday. In court, the prosecution said the rapper intimidated witnesses, making that case against him fall apart.

In 2012, it was reported that the murders were tied to Ra Diggs’ alleged Gowanus Houses drug operation.
