Oh No….say it ain’t so! Young Jeezy’s name has been brought up in the cocaine-conspiracy case against Black Mafia Family (BMF) member Fleming “Ill” Daniels! Although Jeezy hasn’t been charged with any crime, a witness in the case has implicated Jay “Young Jeezy” Jenkins as a major player who received several kilos of cocaine from the group.
Former BMF member Ralph “Ralphie” Simms is snitchin on everyone in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence.
Simms testified that his job was to unload BMF’s cocaine from limos outfitted with secret compartments. He said he piled as many as 100 “bricks” of cocaine at a time inside the basement of one of BMF’s stash houses, an ultra-modern Buckhead mansion nicknamed “Space Mountain.”
And he said that on one occasion, in the fall of 2004, he was ordered by high-ranking BMF members Chad “J-Bo” Brown and Martez “Tito” Byrth to set aside multi-kilo cocaine “shipments” for two customers. Simms said the customers picked up the coke from him at Space Mountain.
When asked by assistant U.S. Attorney Robert McBurney who the customers were, Simms gave two names: William “Doc” Marshall, a high-level BMF co-conspirator who testified earlier in the trial, and “Jeezy.”
“Young Jeezy the rapper?” McBurney asked.
“Yes,” Simms answered.
Jeezy’s name cropped up several times in the first two days of testimony, but only in relation to his well-publicized friendship with BMF’s Atlanta-based leader, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory. In November, Flenory pleaded guilty in Detroit to running a continuing criminal enterprise. He faces a minimum sentence of 20 years. (Source)
