Lupe Fiasco Being Sued For Alleged Ties To Drug Kingpin

(AllHipHop News) Lupe Fiasco is facing a lawsuit from the wife of convicted drug dealer Charles “Chilly” Patton according to a report by TMZ. In her suit, Inita Patton, claims that Lupe worked with her estranged husband to hide more than $9 million dollars in different bank accounts.

Inita says Lupe was directly involved in the scheme to prevent her from receiving any of those hidden funds in the couple’s current divorce proceedings. She is suing Lupe in order to reclaim the money.

Charles Patton was a partner in Lupe’s 1st and 15th Records. He is also listed as one of the executive producers on Lupe’s first album Food & Liquor.

In 2007, Patton was charged with running a heroin empire in Chicago. Prosecutors tried to make a connection between Patton’s drug dealings and the record label, but were unable to do so. Lupe even testified at the trial for the defense.

Patton was eventually convicted of possessing six kilos of heroin and sentenced to 44 years in prison. Lupe was not charged in the case.

It seems Inita’s lawsuit will be going to trial as well and not settled out of court. Lupe’s lawyer told TMZ that her claims will be proven untrue at trial.

“There are no secret accounts and no illicit instructions,” said the attorney.

    Rappers and drug dealers go hand and hand in the industry so this isn’t anything new this kind of stuff happends more than we think.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      uhhhh no … drug dealers and black folks period go hand and hand … has nothing to do with rap “per say” … if you think about it … its another trap … so many of our brothers and sisters get incarcerated its hard to make friends growing up without having someone around you that into some kind of criminal activity …. and they say you hang with criminals enuff you bound to get into some bs … its a plight and a trap that most dont even recognize …..

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        its foolish to say rappers and drug dealers go hand to hand … cause it just aint true … what would be true is wanna be drug dealers and rap go together … now thats makes way more sense … cause criminals are found in every asset of the working world from sports all the way to music all the way to just the average joe on the street …..

        U don’t think its a drug dealer in every rappers crew really! Then where do they get the weed they smoke when there on tour or who do you think pays for all of the studio time and everything before they made it? Most of them were selling drugs or knew a big time dealer that was putting up the cash for this business cause its not cheap for instance look at j-z.
