Juelz Santana’s new year isn’t kicking off on a positive note, as news spread earlier today that the Dipset rhymer’s New Jersey studio was raided by police on Thursday (Jan. 20).
Officers entered the premises, dubbed “Santana’s World,” to find guns and drugs present. Two fully loaded 9mm handguns, several boxes of ammunition and marijuana were among the items confiscated. While the surprise visit turned up the illegal guns, Bergen County police were there to arrest Toby M. Raynor, also known as Hynief, an affiliate of the rapper’s Skull Gang set.
The 24-year-old was reportedly taken into custody after selling marijuana to undercover Gang Unit detectives. During a 10-month investigation, Raynor, 24, dealt the drugs on June 16 and July 1, 2010. Raynor is currently being held in the Bergen County Jail on $50,000 bail.
On the day of the raid, Santana was scheduled to make an appearance on MTV’s ‘RapFix Live,’ alongside Dipset members Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Freekey Zeeky. The ‘Back To The Crib’ creator was noticeably absent from the show and when host Sway questioned Cam’ron as to his whereabouts, Cam revealed Santana was suffering from an “allergic reaction.”
