Wu-Affiliate Shyheim Arrested On Felony Gun Charges

(AllHipHop News) Shyheim, a former 90’s child rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan, has been arrested on felony gun and drug possession charges stemming from a raid of his Staten Island New York apartment.

The 35-year-old rapper was arrested today after a raid last Friday that allegedly turned up illegal guns and drugs. The gang unit of Staten Island says they found a .32 caliber Serrifile Inc, a Terrier One revolver and five rounds of ammo under a mattress.

A previous criminal record forbids Shyheim to have possession of guns.

In addition to the guns, court papers say that police found 41 files of heroin, a single Xanax pill and other paraphilia, apparently for selling and weighing drugs.

Shyheim is the cousin of Ghostface Killah. He’s released five albums and appeared in a few movies like the 1999 hit movie “In Too Deep.”

    This dude seems to have blown his opportunities. I recall he got a cool start that most young rappers don’t get back in the 90s. He seemed to have connections, he was even in some popular artists’ videos as well as some movies with pretty well known stars in them.

    How did he squander his pretty good opportunities. He was blessed even though he was never a big name rapper. This guy like went backwards in life and career. I mean why did he start getting into shits when he got older?

      This man freestyled with 2pac, biggie, and big daddy kane when he was like 14 years old

      Because the bills gotta be paid and he ain’t got no deal. He ain’t the only rapper living off the streets, he just happen to get caught. Ain’t nobody checkin for Shyheim like that anymore….Sad but true

      • therealest1

        That’s why it pays to save up because you never know what happens in the future especially with rap money.

      • What do you mean?

        You know exactly what happens with RAP money…it’s gets spent trying to look like you have more than you actually do!

        Rich people stay rich by living like they are poor, while poor people stay poor, by living like they are rich.


      • therealest1

        Your point is a perfect example of living beyond your means regarding rappers. Its the problem with individuals who only live for today and tomorrow at most, but not the distant future meaning years to come.

      • Product of Da Reagan Era

        Not always, that money don’t last forever. Look at Lauryn Hill, she is broke and I doub’t she was out there ballin. Also, she sold way more records than Shyheim….Some blow they money but some never have any real money to begin with. Don’t believe the hype because alot of these rapper be fakin.

      • therealest1

        No doubt, a grip of them front. But that’s the reason to get money outside of rap if they can make a name for themselves because opportunities are out there if they know how to seize it. 50 Cent is a perfect example with all his deals outside of rap. He was even quoted as saying he makes more money outside of rap.

      • Product of Da Reagan Era

        Yes, but 50Cent is rare success story. And to be honest with you 50cent was still selling crack while signed to his first deal on Columbia.

    WACK… Selling that death, enjoy jail, prick.

  • dehova

    Damn, Shy was like the goodie 2 shoes kid back in the day. Illegal (Jamal and Malik) must be mass murderers now. Jokes aside, I don’t wish jail on no man but like the cat below said, doors opened up for son that many of us could only dream of.

    • hoeyuno

      I always wondered what happened to them 2. I only ever heard them on the too short joint but the older one ripped shit.

      • dehova

        Jamal was rolling with Def Squad as Mally G (I think he’s on the first Blackout album). Malik was, if I’m correct, Lil Malik. I used to see ads for his album(s) in The Source. The used to look them bullshit ads No Limit used to do so I over looked him

      • hoeyuno

        Those no limit album covers were cheesy as hell.

  • OnlyFaDaReal

    • Product of Da Reagan Era

      The dope is light….he could get a program for that but he going to jail for that pistol. They are strict on guns in NYC.

      • OnlyFaDaReal
