Recently, in a very shocking way, news came out that rapper CJamm was reported to have been booked for drug use. It was said that he was arrested for the suspicion of usage and said that he tried it out of curiosity. Humorously, the rapper took to his Instagram 3 hours before the news came out that his last post would be “a recording before he goes in”.
And as though that wasn’t enough of a show for the people, early the next day, news came out about another rapper who was part of the arrest CJamm was in: Bill Stax.
According to the news report, Bill Stax was arrested in his home, the same place CJamm was allegedly arrested at as well, after receiving reports of usage on multiple ocassions. A number of other people were arrested alongside them, which includes producers, rappers and rookies.
