South Florida rapper Tafia has been on the rise with his music and recently joined Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label. However, it seems there may be a slight delay in Tafia’s push, as the rapper was charged in a crime ring. Reports noted the rapper and a few associates allegedly used wire services at Walmart to take over $300,000 in cash.
A report from WSVN noted that Tafia was one of four people arrested in relation to the scam at a Walmart located in Miami. Tafia—real name Emmannual Alexis, appeared in court for his alleged role in the scam. The amount that was taken from Walmart amounted to $360,000. Tafia faces numerous charges, including possession of a firearm, grand theft, and complicated fraudulent transfer of money.
Reports noted that the arrest comes only a week after Tafia was involved in an almost fatal car accident, where Tafia’s car collided with a tractor-trailer. Stay tuned for more updates.
