: MediaTakeOut.com has been following the career of 1990s child rapper Shyheim "The Rugged Child" Franklin. Shyheim had a number of run ins with the law, and spent 2 years in prison for a gun charge.
But he had been making a CHANGE in his life. He re-dedicated hiself to music, and was actually making some good stuff. But he's looking at a bunch of years now.
Here is what he Associated Press is reporting:
Shyheim Franklin, 35, has been arrested on felony charges, after an early-morning raid of his 185 St. Mark's Pl. apartment in St. George turned up a gun and drugs, police allege.
The raid took place Friday at 6:15 a.m. -- members of the Staten Island Gang Squad used a warrant to search Franklin's apartment, where under his mattress they reported finding a sock with a .32 caliber Serrifile Inc. Terrier One revolver and five rounds of ammo inside, according to court papers. Franklin's criminal record means he has no business possessing a gun, according to court papers.
Police also found 41 glassines of heroin in a safe under his bed, a Xanax pill in a plastic zipper bag on his bedside table, and a scale alongside empty bags and glassines under his bed, court papers allege.
Shyheim is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and multiple counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies.

Summers almost here black folks! Heats about to rise. Hopefully it won't bring a high body count nor more black men going to jail/prison. Know where you're children are and who they're hanging with, so they don't grow up drug dealers, drug addicts, baby mamas & daddy's. j/s
The moral of the story is:
Kids stop trying to be a rapper or professional ball player and go to school. You statistically have a better chance of making it into a good medical school than you do becoming a rapper. Real talk!
