With so many rappers being accused of using their stage names to slip into a new personality, it's good to see that some people actually live up to their monikers. In the case of PimpStick Quezzy, his name makes it even more awkward that he's in jail, for allegedly pimping out a teenager.
The 29-year-old, whose government name is George McLeod III, is facing a six-count indictment for turning some poor young girl into his sexual money maker. McLeod was arrested by FBI agents last week, and according to the indictment filed in the U.S. District Court in Columbia, South Carolina, last September, he and two associates “secured a hotel room” and a “prostitution client” for the minor, known only as SG.
McLeod also took photos of the girl in “various stages of undress” and posted them online. He met the victim online and sent for her to travel (by bus) from her home in Montana, to South Carolina. He is also accused of getting the girl a fake ID so that she could get a job as a stripper.
As an aspiring rap star, McLeod has posted his music filed with mentions of his illegal conquests, and has also used Twitter to announce his location— to all 17 of his followers. “im in dallas tx. promoting this pimpin!” he wrote, two weeks ago.
His detention hearing is scheduled to take place Wednesday (Aug. 1).
Aside from the fact that pimping out a woman—who also happens to be a minor—is deplorable, above all else McCleod is just sloppy. Bishop Don Magic Juan would never let himself get into this kind of trouble.
