In 2022, Bankroll Freddie was arrested and then charged with a series of crimes, including possession and distribution of marijuana and controlled substances. On Saturday (April 27), it was announced that the rapper had been found guilty. However, there is some good news — several other serious charges he faced, have been dismissed.

The Arkansas rapper’s charges stem from the recent federal crackdown on drug and gun crimes throughout the state. Bankroll Freddie (real name Freddie Gladney III), had been linked in the investigation along with several others.

Bankroll Freddie Linked To ‘Large-Scale Drug Distribution’ Across Arkansas

The group was suspected of being part of a “large-scale drug distribution network.” Court documents also revealed that Bankroll’s father was supposedly involved. In addition to that, his possession of multiple firearms was allegedly part of the trafficking operation.

While the QC rapper awaits sentencing, his bubbling career seems to hang in the balance. It’s unclear if Freddie will be able to bounce back after serving his time in prison. As of now, he faces 30 years in prison for the charges.

This isn’t Freddie’s first run-in with the law, however, in 2019, he found himself in a troubling situation where he was the victim of an armed robbery. A now ex-Atlanta police officer was sentenced to ten years in prison for his role in the robbery.

The officer, Justin Mikale Thorne, admitted to authorities that he played a role in the crime, but claimed it was in response to Freddie threatening him and his family.

The rapper burst on the scene in 2017, releasing a slew of freestyles including one titled “Lil Baby” and another one named “Act Up.” Two years later he released his first mixtape, Saved by the Bales in July 2019. In 2022, the rapper dropped off his debut album, Big Bank, which included features from the late Young Dolph, Megan Thee Stallion, 2 Chainz, and more.
