Pras Michel To Be Charged In Connection To Billion Dollar 1MDB Scandal

Pras is going to have to answer how he received his political money from.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Pras Michel could be in some serious trouble since the Feds are about to charge him with campaign-finance violations.

The Fugees co-founder has been ensnared in the 1MDB financial scandal, which was a billion-dollar fund that was looted by former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Pras was under investigation by the Feds, who say an associate of the Prime Minister named Jho Low helped launder the 1MDB funds into accounts they controlled abroad.

Pras and an associate named George Higginbotham worked with Jho Low, who deposited over $73 million into accounts they controlled.

The rapper is accused of donating over $1 million to various political organizations, including President Barack Obama's campaign during the 2012 elections, and concealing the money's origins.

His lawyers have yet to reply.
