Murda Team Member Ronald “Ra Diggs” Herron Convicted Of Murder & Drug Trafficking


(AllHipHop News) Ronald “Ra Diggs” Herron testified at his federal trial that the lyrics and images displayed in his music and videos were simply fictional tales, and he is no longer involved in the criminal activities of his past. That was not enough to convince a jury of his innocence.

The New York Times reports Herron was convicted on 21 counts including racketeering, drug trafficking, and the murders of Frederick Brooks, Richard Russo and Victor Zapata. He was previously acquitted in state court for one of the murder cases presented at the federal trial.

Ra Diggs was allegedly the leader of a Bloods gang faction and drug enterprise centered in Brooklyn’s Gowanus Houses projects. He was also a member of the rap group Murda Team with Uncle Murda who testified in court on Herron’s behalf. Ra Diggs was affiliated with Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka as well.

“He styled himself a rap artist, but the jury’s verdict makes clear who Herron really is: a drug dealer and murderer who sought power through fear and intimidation,” stated U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch.

Sentencing for Ronald Herron is set for October 1. He faces a mandatory life sentence in prison.

  • Terrance Goodman

  • Dayum!

    Now he’s doing life after admitting he’s a fake Ninja!

    That’s not going to be an easy bid to do!
    #ProjectLife

    • Killuminati

      fake ninja lol

    • Sweet Pea

      Yeah coz real ninjas are so real they wouldn’t deny anything when on the stand facing a life bid… Shit if he’s real he’ll be a real fish and show them whats up inside, or if he’s not it would never of mattered. #CluelessLife

      • If he was real, he would have lived his life in a way that would allow him to keep his head up, shame free, no matter what was facing him.

        Right makes might.

        Who will deny holding his seed when it cry, fixing their laces when they untie, dropping them off and picking them up from FOOL (School) & teaching them the difference between being responsible and being cool, etc.

        What is a real Ninja?
        A gunslinger or an economist student, selling out so his kid doesn’t do life in the Belly of the beast?

        Max B anyone?

        “The age of the ignorant rapper is done, Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly everyone!”

        These exes make being gangsta a prereuisite for rapping, the lyrics are getting harder, the skirts are getting shorter, look at how these pedophiles market our sons & daughters.

      • Craig

        Wrong again hoodrat- funny how you wanna “box” but wont take this one way trip to chi- you already know ghetto filth.

      • Dayum!

        How many MAG accounts do you got?

        LOL~N

        I’m not about that life homey, last thing I need to do is put my self in a situation like Ronald “Ra Diggs” Herron over a B’i$H Ninja like yourself, with nothing to lose.

        For all that, you won the beef, you’re the tougher guy, etc.

        If you ever decide to stop sitting down when you aim & stand up & pi$$ like a man, with the hands, by all means, I have no qualms with breaking your jaw & knocking you out whenever you’re feeling froggish.

        Literally whenever. you can get knocked out at 9AM for Breakfast if your heart desires, so don’t push me, remember it’s YOU, not ME that’s pu$$y!

        I spend my days showing the youth various ways to beat the skin off a B’ishNinja, such as yourself, forehead, instead of making a decision like your ChiTown brethen.

        If their OG’s are a bunch of can’t fight B’ish Ninjaz such as yourself, I can see why they killing each other.

        So when it comes to gunplay, I have no problem giving your stiff necked, broke wrist, Frank Ocean @$$ the internet tough guy of the year, as long as WE BOTH know I will knock you out like him….at will.

        P.S. Wear a mouth piece or lose your jibblets, have them ‘chets on the bloody ring apron, looking like a box of bloody Chitlets.

      • Craig

        blah blah blah- you cant afford the ticket to chi- we all know you live in a shack and ride a van- like i said i have nothing to say to your scared ass other than you already knew what was gonna happen if you step off your block and into the real world-

      • is that the official reason you backed out & didn’t show?
        LOL~N

  • GP

    • jgraves58

    Yeah like ruling based on rap lyrics is enough to convict a man of murder.

        MACAFRAMA!

  • hoeyuno

    On top of the whole case being based around a jailhouse rat and his lyrics the D.A. also rejected his request to give his own opening statement…Basically they didn’t wanna hear shit from him and he was guilty before the trial started…..on the flipside as a grown man who had a troubled youth you youngbucks gotta stop doing and saying stupid shit on youtube, twitter etc…you guys are just making these peoples jobs easier!!!!

    • jgraves58

      If he committed the crimes his ass need to be imprisoned. Niggas is the only people that want to protect motherfuckers that kill other niggas. Stupid.

  • baller187

    when u live that life u know thats the only outcome

    • FRUKOH

      or the grave

  • dbfromdc

    HE BETTER PRAY TO GOD THAT THEY DONT GIVE HIM THE DEATH PENALTY!!!!!!!!

    • disqus_twMP9EHMfD

      There is no death penalty in NY. It’s a liberal state. If they give you the death penalty it will be commuted to life or you’ll just sit on death row forever but never actually be executed.

      • dbfromdc

        HE IS IN FEDERAL COURT AND THE FEDS HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY IN ALL 50 STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, IT DOES NOT MATTER IF HES IN NEW YORK OR IDAHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SMMFH

      • jgraves58

        All states have federal courts, NY never carries out the death penalty. The state has too many liberal judges. Now, if he was in a Texas federal court, he’d be in a serious life and death situation.

      • dbfromdc

        THE POINT OF THE MATTER IS THE FEDERAL COURTS HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY IN ALL 50 STATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • disqus_twMP9EHMfD

        And it doesn’t matter if you type in caps. The point of the matter is that it is impossible for this man to be executed while in NY state. It doesn’t matter if it’s a federal trial you goof. The federal government has courts in every state….AND?!! You must be a country bamma.

      • dbfromdc

        BOTTLE LINE IS THE FEDS HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY IN ALL 50 STATES INCLUDING NEW YORK SO YOU CAN STOP SENDING ME REPLIES TRYING TO CONVINCE ME YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN YOU CLEARLY DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SMMFH

      • disqus_twMP9EHMfD

        You are stupid. I’m from New York. Search for any inmate that has been executed since the death penalty was repealed. Case closed. Type in caps all you want. You are a dummy. There was even a guy who murdered a cop, was tried in federal court, was given the death penalty, but his dumb ass is still alive. Yes. You can get the death penalty, but the sentence WILL NEVER BE CARRIED OUT. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? It doesn’t matter what they call your sentence, you cannot be executed in NY. STUPID KID.

      • dbfromdc

        THANK YOU FOR PROVING MY POINT, THAT THE FEDERAL COURT HAS THE DEATH PENALTY IN NEW YORK, YOU JUST SAID THAT A GUY GOT THE DEATH PENALTY IN FEDERAL COURT IN NEW YORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!NOW MOVE ON MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!LMFAO

      • disqus_twMP9EHMfD

        What an idiot. You clearly lost the argument so you revert to semantics. We already stated earlier that even if he got the death penalty it would never be carried out. Now you’re holding on to the fact that his sentence has the possibility of being called the death penalty? We were talking about the end result. As in will he actually be put to death, dummy. Your circular logic which leads to nowhere is quite amusing. Like I said earlier you must be educated from some public school in the south. LOL.

      • dbfromdc

        STOP TRYING TO EXPLAIN YOURSELF, AINT NOBODY READING YOUR LIFE STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MOVE ON MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LMFAO

      • disqus_twMP9EHMfD

        The Feds could give you the death penalty and frowny face stickers….. And tell the judge to execute you tomorrow. Guess what? You will sit in your New York jail cell for the rest of your natural life. Even if they move you to another state, you will never be executed. That’s New York for you. OK?

      • Ipullcards

        It’s a federal case but you’re right about my state. Death penalty has been repealed and is suspended at the time
