More details have come forth surrounding the arrest of Philly rapper Dark Lo, who was accused of threatening a federal witness during AR-AB’s drug trial.
Earlier today (November 19th), AR-AB was just convicted of using his Original Block Hustlaz imprint to pump lethal quantities of cocaine, crack, meth and heroin throughout Philadelphia.
The rapper and three of his associates are facing life in prison when they are sentenced for conspiracy to distribute drugs.
O.B.H. rapper Dark Lo unexpectedly became tangled up in the case, after he was busted last week for threatening a witness who testified against AR-AB and his associates.
Reps for Dark Lo said the witness was not comfortable with him in the courtroom, but the Feds say the rapper’s threat was much greater than his presence during a portion of the trial.
The Feds claim Dark Lo, real name Charles Salley, wrote a threatening letter to a witness under one of his rap aliases “Ron Harvey.”
Dark Lo dropped an entire mixtape titled “Ron Harvey Jr.,” which was named after the infamous co-founder of the Philadelphia Black Mafia.
The real Ron Harvey was sentenced to seven life sentences for his role in the murder of seven people inside of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s townhouse in Washington D.C. in 1973.
The Feds say Dark Lo’s letter under the “Ron Harvey” alias threatened to harm the witness for snitching on his O.B.H. associates.
On November 13, 2019, United States Magistrate Judge Lynne A. Sitarski ordered Dark Lo be held in custody until his trial.
If Dark Lo is convicted, he is facing up to 20 years in prison for witness tampering.
