Atlanta rapper Cash Out is accused of running a “criminal enterprise,” and has been indicted on multiple counts of rape, sex trafficking, and racketeering.
TMZ reports that the rapper, who scored a minor hit in 2012 with his track “Cashin’ Out” and appeared as himself in the 2019 movie Uncut Gems, as well as five others have been charged in a 41-count indictment that alleges rape, aggravated sodomy, human trafficking, and racketeering. Authorities have accused Cash Out of leading the criminal organization, which forced women into prostitution.
According to the prosecutors, Cash Out lured victims by exploiting his contacts in the music industry. The rapper is currently facing a sentence of 25-to-life behind bars.
“We’ve rescued two so far,” said Fulton County deputy district attorney Earnell Winfrey. “Some of these women are our most vulnerable women and he lured them in, let them believe that he cared about them and that he would take care of them, only to flip the script and then began to pimp them out. He’s accused … of whipping a young lady who’s a sex worker, and this was one of the girls that he had recruited.”
