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.

He used to be kind of cute when he was younger........
New Yorkers are dumb as hell. Stop letting bloomberg tell you you can't carry a gun. This is America, it's your right to carry a gun.
SAD NEWS?!?! What is sad about it? That he had to turn to crime to live his life? Fk that.
He USES the s hit, I'm sure that was his personal stas h.
Poor baby, Shy was a nice guy before...........
***..well thats the choices he made in his life and this is the consequences he has to pay now..let the lord be with you homie..
Awww I remember him I had the biggest crush on him back in the day he had long hair an dlooked Blasian a little bit he had a good rap career as a child, then he was behind the scenes and then no more from him... I hope he stays strong
Shyheim had a rough upbringing..His mom was a heroin addict.
OH....let me call up Mama Dee to see if she can make up some 'FREE SHYHEIM' Tshirts too !
He's just another statistic, just pathetic he has to wear a hat with his name so people can remember him.
O_o Dam *** homie! never heard of him but dam ***
What is so sad about this???? MTO you are an idiot!
Prepaid Phone cards for the SUPER low...
Whats the Word Man..? i remember him from Original Gangsters. He used to be so cute.
I LOVED him back in the day. He used to be on that show on the WB with Robert Townsend The Parenthood. He looks like he's on drugs so sad

King Beef Atl
Sorry to hear that...
He was the kid in TLC's Waterfalls video. SO unfortunate!!
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!
I guess he didn't learn from the T.L.C video he was in..."Dont go chasing waterfall's" Jea_mar/instagram
This website once reported that Shy & Cherry from Punky Brewster were together. If so I hope she not gettin charges her way.
THAT'S JUST TOO BAD...THIS DUDE WAS A LYRICAL BEAST JUDGING FROM HIS EARLIER STUFF.....I BET RAEKWON'S HAPPY LOL.....SHA YOU MESSED UP!
