The pair of performers are among 32 individuals who were charged in the case, which spans a dozen shootings with 13 victims, including one person who died and three bystanders who were injured. The crimes occurred from March 2019 to the present day, according to the 140-count indictment filed by the Brooklyn district attorney’s office, which held a high-profile press conference featuring New York Mayor Eric Adams and top law enforcement officials.


Williams’ attorney Mitchell Elman responded to The Times’ questions but was not immediately available to comment. Under their performing names, Williams and Chambers were frequent collaborators and are considered pioneers of the growing Brooklyn drill rap scene, which exploded in popularity over the past half-decade. The late rapper, Pop Smoke who was killed in February 2020 in Los Angeles, was one of the scene’s most visible artists. William rose to fame in 2017 with a viral single. Chambers command social media followings of hundreds of thousands, with their music garnering hundreds of millions of streams on Spotify and YouTube.


However, during his ascent, prosecutors allege Williams had been funding a Flatbush-based gang, 8 Trey Crips, and its affiliated 9 Ways gang, according to the indictment and a district attorney’s fresh release. The prosecutors alleged in court documents that Williams had treated members of the gang to a Manhattan steakhouse to celebrate a drive-by shooting in October 2070 in which one alleged rival gang member was killed and five other alleged gang members were injured.

When prosecutors filed the recent conspiracy charges, Williams was still serving time for a 2021 gun charge at a Rikers Island jail, according to New York Department of Corrections records. In January 2021, police had pulled Williams over for speeding and an illegal U-turn and found a gun in his car, according to the New York Daily News. He pleaded guilty to the gun charge later that year and was sentenced to two years in prison. Prison records showed his earliest projected release was set for June 15.

While Williams was locked up, fans eagerly anticipated his release. In a video posted to William’s Instagram handle earlier this week, Williams had phoned in from prison during a sleepy Hallow concert where Chambers held his phone to a large crowd that chanted loudly to free Sheff. Williams and Chambers were slated to perform at Miami’s Rolling Loud hip-hop music festival in July which is headlined by Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, and ASAP Rocky.

However, William is incarcerated at a facility in Queens NY, according to jail records, where he awaits his next court date on August 9. The rapper had also been candid about his affiliation with Brooklyn gangs but rejected the negative connotations, such as violence and criminal activity. Thank you for being a patient reader.
