The Source magazine founder and former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Raymond “Benzino” Scott is facing felony drug charges. 

Reports TMZ:

We’ve learned Benzino was arrested back in January 2017 and charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies (22 grams), felony possession of 6 MDMA pills and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed. 

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, cops executed a search warrant at the producer’s ATL apartment and found the drugs in drawers and on the kitchen counters. He was arrested and posted $12k bail. Benzino’s legal team argued the search was illegal, but a judge ruled cops searched the pad legally.

Fast forward to now … we’re told Benzino’s legal team will learn Wednesday in court when the case is headed to trial … which could be as soon as next month, if he doesn’t cop a plea.

Last we heard from Benzino, his baby mama Althea was not getting charged for putting hands on him.

If convicted, Benzino is looking at 15 years in jail.
