Mississippi Rapper in Jail for 14 Years after He was Busted Selling Drugs in Disguise of T-shirt Business in Jackson

A rapper got more than 14 years in federal prison for having more than 37 grams of drugs with the plan to sell them.

Court papers say that Ronald Cobbs, who is also known as Lil Ron or Reverend Bankroll, was selling drugs out of his t-shirt shop in Jackson’s North Mart Plaza.

Cobbs was charged by a federal grand jury with having methamphetamine with the plan to sell it. He pleaded guilty in February 2024.

A lot of research was done on drug trafficking in Jackson and the surrounding places, which led to this case.

The news came from U.S. Attorney Todd Gee and Anessa Daniels-McCaw, who is an Assistant Special Agent in Charge with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

There were investigations into the case by the Ridgeland Police Department, the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department, and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics. The case was brought by Assistant US Attorney Keesha Middleton.
