Who’s been wondering “what happened to Guerilla Black?” Hell, who even remembers Guerilla Black? For anyone curious of his whereabouts, the Compton rapper with the stolen Biggie swag and that one song from that one year got into the credit card scam business after his star faded.
Black, real name Charles Tony Williamson, was sentenced to nine years in prison for credit card fraud on Friday, October 25. Officials say Williamson bought over 27,000 stolen credit card and debit card numbers that he used and also resold. The scam netted Williamson $150,000 between January 2011 and February 2012.
And since we’re keeping up with Biggie impersonators. Here’s an update on Jamal “Gravy” Woolard who played the Brooklyn rapper in the 2009 biopic Notorious.
According to commenter BeNZa:
“Off topic a bit but the actor who played Biggie in Notorious just done some ‘biggie tribute shows’ here performing as Biggie ($35 a ticket) Probably not his doing but he was weak as fuck. He used actual tracks to rap over (not instrumentals) and did the same songs twice while not even being fit enough to finish verses & then he fucked it up chanting “bullshit & party” [sic]”
