Jacob Arabov has forfeited $2 million dollars in illegal proceeds, as a part of his plea agreement conviction for laundering the drug profits of a nationwide drug conspiracy network.

 Arabov, known affectionately to Hip-Hop stars as “Jacob the Jeweler,” was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison for lying to federal authorities about the ownership of $5 million worth of jewelry seized from Terry Flenory, co-head of the notorious Black Mafia Family that operated throughout the United States from 1990-2005.

 Under law, drug forfeiture money appropriated by authorities can only be disbursed and used by law enforcement agencies.

 Of the $2 million seized, $1.6 million was distributed to seven law enforcement agencies in and around Detroit, the Black Mafia Family’s original base of operations.

 The Detroit, Groose Ile Township, Birmingham, and Livonia police departments received $267, 200, with the same amount going to the Livingston County Sheriff’s office.

 The River Rouge Police Department received $198,800, while the Waterford Police Department retained $67,200.

 The remaining $400,000 was kept by the federal government.

 The Black Mafia Family was founded by the Flenory brothers Demetrius (“Meech”) and Terry (“Southwest P”) in the early 90s.

 Their vast criminal empire drew extensive police attention when the group began publicly promoting themselves in Hip-Hop circles throughout Atlanta (Young Jeezy, Bleu DaVinci): throwing lavish parties, creating DVDs, and even erecting a prominent Billboard in the city.

 In 2005, a series of drug raids and turns of key members into informants effectively the dismantled the drug trafficking organization.

Last year, both Flenory brothers were sentenced to 30 years in prison under CCE (Continuing Criminal Enterprise Law) classification.

  1. Used to hear his name dropped in all sorts of songs back in the day…SMH!

    Another example of “Hip-hop” (helping ignorant people -hurt our people). Now, with the name Jacob, jeweler, Florida, and money laundering, Is this guy one of the jews running the hip-hop industry that’sdestroying Black people for white people and others global entertainment? He wasn’t a detriment to hip-hop, his people’s way of thinking is to do to us what Adolph Hitler once did to his ancestors. Wake up!

  3. Robert Jr. James McClendon says:

    Anti-semtic? Anti-hammetic? Everything that Africans or Black Africans in America have done in this world has been changed. Everything that Africans and Blacks in America and throughout the world have done has been changed. What you read in the Bible is not stories about blue eyed, blonde haired people. What you read in the Bible has been changed. The names, faces, places, everything. You ever wonder why? I am tired of what Africans in America created being called something other than what they created just to allow Jewish people to continue to exploit and make money off of Black Africans in America. Anti-semetic? No, just tired of Black people allowing what they create to be changed and stolen by the same people over and over again. Tired of my people acting like these racist people little children. I see how Village Voice, David Toop, Wild Style, and others all worked together to change the name of what we created. Just tired of Black Africans in America selling their souls. The only product that America has to sell globally is the negative image of Black people, marketed by Jews and “sell-out niggers” under the guise of “Hip-hop”. All those who support this thing are doing the same thing Adolph Hitler did to the jews. For money you see nothing. Anti-semetic? No, I tell the truth. Try having a site called “Helping young Black and young white people”. See how many Jews back that up and market that. Like I said, the only thing America ever had to sell to the world consistently has been Black people’s creations or their negative images (hip-hop, minstrel, ect.). And I anti–semetic? No, I just know some true things about Village Voice, Source, Def Jam, MTV, and some other “Jewish” people who have been exploiting Black people and controlling white people (Romans) minds for years. May not be time to wake up, just yet, but when you read me saying “Hip-hop” (Helping Ignorant People-Hurt Our People) maybe you’ll now know who the ignorant people really are and who’s being hurt, while they profit. “Davey D’s Corner” – wouldn’t sell would it. Ain’t got that Jew stamp of apporval. Anti-semetic? Anti-exploitation of my people, that’s all. Read about Adolph Hitler and his use of propaganda, now look at who owns and what they are doing to the world. Ever heard the turn “dumb down”? God got something, you all. Just be ready. It called a “reniasasance”. Watch!!!

  4. Robert Jr. James McClendon says:

    I suppose he’s now you all “hero” for not switching and working for the Black Mafia. Learn your history, people, and know who changed your history. Propaganda “owners” keep racism going. Trust me. Americans don’t think, they just act on what they are told to think and believe from the media. Media told you all he was “The King of Pop” what was he? When them jews destroyed his livelyhood in the states what did you believe? Know your history, Black people, and know who has been changing it. Starting with the Bible, something made up about a Noah guy and Ham. The more you read and pray the further you’ll want to get away from these people and their madness. Adolph Hitler was a terrible man, but God lets “everything” happen for a reason. Study, my people.

  5. Robert Jr. James McClendon says:

    You know what? Maybe I am just an anit-semite. I always talk about the owners of Source and Def Jam and what they are doing to people, tell me who these people are, and do they have any impact ,and then tell me if I am an anti-semite or I know some things you perhaps just don’t care to know – WHO ARE THESE FOLKS? Owners of Source Magazine and Def Jam, Sumner Redsone, Norman Pearlstine, Donald Graham, Rupert Murdoch, Harvey Westien, Michael Eisner, Steven Spielberg, Neal Shapiro, Mort Zuckerman, Peter Kann, Peter Cherrin, Amy Pascal, Gerald Levin, Edgar Bronton, Jr., and David Westin, just to name a few. FIND OUT WHO THESE FOLKS ARE AND THEN STUDY WHAT ADOLPH HITLER DID. VERY SIMILAR TACTICS. “NEVER AGAIN” my ass! Wake up, America!

  6. Robert Jr. James McClendon says:

    Watch the movie “Deep Cover” with Lawrence Fishburne. The characters are switched , but what was the jewish guy pushing to the people cheaper than coke and lasted longer? Wake up, you all! Follow the money trail and you’ll find evil, just follow the money trail. It keeps leading back to the same people. Damn, I can’t do this without “white people’s” help! How many clues do I have to give you cowardous “roman” and “nubian” bastards!!!

    Mr. Robert Jr. James McClendon,

    I know this thread is old, and I honestly have no idea what you are saying, and I am speaking as one of the semite people you speak of (one who actually works for a living and goes to college, unlike the shrill of a man in this article)…

    …but what? I really can’t emphasize that I really have no idea what you are talking about. You keep saying the same ideas over and over again, but they don’t seem to have any form of coherent argument or logic.

    Anyway, to an old topic no one cares about!

    First off, I feel no sympathy for either this person (whom I’ve heard far too many times…mostly because a close friend of mine is apparently his cousin and father he rarely sees works for him, and everyone in High School used to idolize this fraud of a man) nor for the people buying his overpriced jewelry.

    The only people purchasing his wears are rich. It is not exploitation if it is out of free-will. Its just human stupidity. Like how world leaders in Africa purchase $1,000,000 cell phones that have less functionality than my LG Optimus S that cost me….$0. In the latter scenario, I feel incredible sympathy for those whom are under the rule of such terrible leaders, but that’s another argument.

    Second, Hip-Hop suffers from the same thing that all popular music does nowadays: Autotune and American Idol (or X-factor, or whatever those crazy Brits come up with). The concept that skill and hard-work have no consequence when a device can automatically make you sound like some kind of mangled monkey, or that some television show can make you into an overnight success. The days where bands like Public Enemy actually put their heart and soul into their music are over. Talent is vastly under-appreciated.

    People have to work to get anywhere. Nothing is handed down, and I resent people that get preferential treatment. I’ve never received any. I’ve been bullied all my life for various reasons (religion, naivety), and I don’t have any connections whatsoever. My mom is an immigrant, and my dad worked in a dead-end job.

    As for your rant about us semite people…Being part of this “semite” race you speak of has brought me no special kinds of gifts. I had to leave public school for being beaten up every day because I accidentally had my hebrew after-school books drop from my bookbag (I was the “Jew Boy”…yay…). When applying to college, I got waitlisted and not accepted to a bunch of schools, despite my high GPA and supposedly advantageous (and entirely meaningless) half Hispanic ethnicity. I will likely be unemployed when I graduate this year like the rest of my peers.

    So yeah….if you can find these special places that I’m supposed to go, please tell me. I am actually quite poor and in a lot of debt. 🙁

  11. Truth hurts says:

    You all’s time is limited. History will evetaully repeat itself and no one will lift a finger this time for you guys to make propaganda movies so that you all can get “pensions”, again. AMERICA IS TIRED OF YOU “SUE” CRAZY, THREE PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION BUT CONTROL 5/9TH’S OF THE U.S.SUPREME COURT, ECONOMY COLLAPSING, HOMOSEXUAL PROMOTING, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT HABORING FOR CHEAPER LABOR, 80 PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN MEDIA CONTROLLING, FEDERAL RESERVE COUNTRY OWNING, GEORGE BUSH, BARACK OBAMA, MIT ROMNEY “THREE STOOGIES” OWNING, FAKE ISRAELITES PLACING THEMSELVES IN THE BIBLE AS A CHOSEN PEOPLE THROUGH THE ONLY “FEMALE” BOOK PLACED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT OF THE HOLY BIBLE CALLED “ESTER”, EVERYTHING WRONG WITH AMERICA POINTS DIRECTLY AT YOU PEOPLE, OCCUPY WALL STREET CIVIIL WAR CAUSING WHILE YOU COLLECT ALL OF THE MONEY, EXPLOITING AMERICANS WITH YOUR SHOWS WITH JERRY SPRINGER, COPS, CHEATERS,AND MAURY POVICH, ECT., ANTI-CHRISTIAN….
