(AllHipHop News) DEA agents were investigating rapper Doughboy Roc, just before he was fatally gunned down in Detroit on Monday, (October 10).
The 29-year-old rapper was shot down by unknown assailants on the city’s Westside.
According to court records unsealed by The Detroit News , federal agents caught Doughboy Roc at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, with over $55,000 in cash.
The feds seized the money, which was found in Doughboy Roc’s luggage as he was boarding a flight to Arizona.
Police claimed they seized the funds because they believed the cash was linked to a drug deal, although Doughboy Roc’s attorney strongly denied those allegations.
Doughboy Roc’s attorney, Ivan Land, said that Doughboy Roc was simply going to Arizona to purchase a car.
“My client was not a drug dealer,“ Ivan Land told The Detroit Daily News. “He was a successful artist.“
The rapper filed a lawsuit to have the money returned to him, but he was killed before he could ever see the verdict.
