Finally Famous : 10 Rappers With Pasts They Wish We Would Forget About
Plies The Prized Pupil
Claim To Fame…
Hit the scene in the mid 2000s as one of the hardest acts out of Gunshine state since Trick Daddy and has since new-age Luther Campbelled his way up the charts. Resume solid, street cred bigger. A goon’s goon. Goon of the Year, four years straight.
In 2008, HipHopDX ran an exclusive story detailing Plies’ criminal past. Or lack thereof. According to their findings, the ultimate goon’s first run in with the law was in 2006 after he was already a gold-certified artist. Their reports also unveiled that the “goon affiliated ex-drug dealer” was actually a well-rounded student who attended University of Central Florida and Miami University before dropping out.
