Bizzy Banks is back in police custody.
According to the Daily Voice, the 23-year-old rapper—legal name Majesty Blessed Moses— was arrested Friday morning after authorities raided his Hackensack, New Jersey, home. Local officials say the raid yielded more than two pounds of marijuana, $2,750 in cash, as well as a revolver “loaded with hollow-point bullets.” The investigation was led by Detective Sgt. John Dalton, detectives Mark Carrillo Sergio Raneli and Detective Sgt. John Dalton, along with the Bergen County Regional SWAT team and the NYPD.
Michael Antista, the Detective Captain at the Hackensack Police Department, told the Daily Voice that Bizzy was booked into Bergen County Jail, where he’s awaiting his first court appearance. The rising drill artist was hit with multiple charges, including unlawful possession of a weapon, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, as well as money laundering.
According to the Bergen County inmate database, Bizzy is currently being held without bond.
Pitchfork reports the rapper did a brief stint in jail in 2019, just as he began making waves in the Brooklyn drill scene. Bizzy opened up about his family’s legal issues in a 2020 interview with DJ Booth:
“… My older brother and my father going to jail when I was younger, it just made me become older at a young age because those two were the only two males in the house really,” he explained. “It was [just] me and my mom after a while. So, after that, I had to get on my gritty shit. Growing up where I’m from, you can’t slack in no way possible. I had to look at life differently.”
