Fake Rock Star Who Worked With Game Sentenced To 7 Years For Bank Fraud

(AllHipHop News) Many people have tried to live by the phrase “fake it ’til you make it,” but wannabe rock star Robert Mawhinney is an example of how that philosophy can land you behind bars. Mawhinney, who performs under the stage name Robb “TaLLLLL” University was convicted of swindling four banks out of million of dollars in order to portray the lifestyle of a successful rock star.

The lead singer of the band Lights Over Paris was sentenced to seven years in prison after being found guilty on four counts of making false statements to federally insured banks and one count of money laundering. Mawhinney apparently received a total of $11 million in bank loans after claiming to have assets worth $8 million, but his net worth was actually closer to $10,000.

Mawhinney used the illegal loan money to pay for a studio, a luxury high-rise Los Angeles apartment, trips around the world, a $750,000 tour bus, and music videos. One of those videos featured rapper Game. The Game collaboration “I’m Not A Gangsta” was on Lights Not Paris’ EP Turn Off the Lights. The video currently has around 56,000 views on YouTube.
