The home of love and hip hop star, Mally Mall is being raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). From reports, Mall’s Las Vegas home is being raided by FBI agents who entered on a search warrant. Initially, few details about the raid were released but as time goes by, more information is starting to be released.
According to an insider, Mall is the target of an ongoing criminal investigation. While supervisor of the FBI’s public corruption squad declined to offer any details about the investigation, there is strong speculation it has something to do with human trafficking among other things because agents assigned to the squad also investigate civil rights’ violations.
Born Rashid Jamal, the rapper now goes by the name Mally Mall. In a recent statement from an FBI spokesperson, Bridget Pappas, the raid at his house located at 4311 of East Oquendo Road around 6:00 this morning was confirmed. In addition to the raid performed east of South Lamb Boulevard, a second one was conducted close to Patrick Lane and Dean Martin Drive.
The second raid location at 6207 Dean Martin Drive is said to be an escort service owned and operated by Mall. When questioned, the FBI did claim the two separate raids were in fact connected and pertained to an ongoing investigation. Pappas added that at this time, all records regarding the raid will remain sealed and no arrests have been made.
In addition to the standard search warrant, animal control officers were on hand because Mall is known throughout the neighborhood for keeping exotic animals. According to one woman who lives close by, she and her daughter visited Mall’s home where they were introduced to an African cat, two bobcats, a phython, and capuchin monkey, among other animals.
Currently, he is in Los Angeles shooting “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” so his home is being searched without him present. Mall has made quite a name for himself not only as a rapper but also songwriter. In addition to big hits of his own, Mall has written and produced works for artists like Chris Brown, Drake, Snoop Dog, and Justin Bieber.
According to several of Mall’s neighbors, they heard loud noises early this morning, to include noise coming from a helicopter flying over the property. The Las Vegas home sits on about three acres and was purchased by Mall in 2005, this according to Clark County Assessor Office records.
Several neighbors watched as an FBI armored vehicles pushed open the security gate leading into Mall’s property and saw the helicopter flying above the rapper’s luxurious home, which at one time, actually landed on his property. Witnesses also reported seeing two large bags of evidence were removed from the home.
The escort service is not the only business registered under Rashid Jamal’s name. He also owns Mally Mall Music and Blue Magic Music. At one time, the rapper dated Carmen Electra and in a recent statement, told reporters that with all the gang activity connected to rap music, he now wears an expensive Maybach bullet proof vest.
