Jail is an only too familiar place for the former Public Enemy hype man who has run the gamut crime-wise from assaulting a former girlfriend to the attempted murder of a neighbor. He has also served time for robbery and burglary, drug charges, and various traffic-related incidents with the most recent one occurring last year, when he was arrested on four outstanding misdemeanor warrants for various driving offenses.
