When The Money Goes: 8 Rappers Who Turned To A Life Of Crime (And Got Caught)
Loon came to fame in the early 2000s on Diddy's Bad Boy Records with song stealing verses on Diddy's “I Need A Girl” Part 1 & 2 and his own hit “Down For Me.” After cutting ties with Diddy a few years later and dropping albums on his own label, his popularity waned. In 2008, Loon gave up rap and converted to Islam. In November 2011, the former rapper was reportedly living in Algeria with his family when he was arrested at a Brussels airport on heroin trafficking charges in the U.S. According to court documents, before he got on his dean (between 2006 and 2008), Loon “knowingly and intentionally” attempted to distribute at least one kilogram of heroin in North Carolina. According to reports, he still remains in custody overseas and is awaiting extradition.
