Scarface has been incarcerated for not paying child support. Scarface has several outstanding child support cases and has had to appear before several courts since his initial incarceration.
“He’s gotten transferred to a few jails last year and some of the cases are in different states,” the source said. “This whole situation could’ve been avoided.”
Additionally, Scarface has not been assisted in his plight from anybody close to him, even though aid has been requested.
Other details to the case have yet to be revealed, but Scarface reportedly has a tremendous financial commitment before him. Being jailed further compounds the situation since he is unable to generate income to even start paying the support, the source said. Whats up with all these men not paying child support ? It makes no sense to me when men do not take care of their children. If you are going to have children then make sure your child support is paid. The only one who suffers is the child.
Louisiana rapper Big Unk aka Mr. Real Estate has lawyered up to defend himself against drug charges stemming from a raid of his house, where police allegedly seized over 150 pounds of marijuana.
Mr. Real Estate, born Reggie Smith, was arrested on January 5th and charged with possession of the weed, a gun, over $500,000 in jewelry and $72,000 in cash money.

According to reps, Mr. Real Estate has legitimately earned all of the possessions he has, based off of doing numerous shows and recording tracks with artists like Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Lil Boosie, Paul Wall and others.
“I expect an uphill battle,” Peter John told said in a statement. “My client has the right to a trial by jury which he has chosen to exercise.”

Appearing live via satellite from his Rikers Island jail in New York, “Tha Block Is Hot” rapper copped to a drug charge Monday in Yuma County, Arizona.
The good news is he won’t be adding more time to his current year long stint in the big house.
Weezy pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug stemming from his 2008 arrest, when the U.S. Border Patrol searched the hip-hopster’s tour bus at a checkpoint and found one ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstasy, drug paraphernalia and a handgun.
In return for his admission, Yuma County District Attorney’s spokesman Kevin Tunell says that several other counts were dropped, including possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Lil Wayne entered Rikers in March after copping to attempted weapons possession that resulted from a 2007 bust—when cops searched his tour bus and found a loaded .40-caliber pistol.
If he remains on good behavior, the 27-year-old Grammy winner could be out in as little as eight months.
And by switching his plea to guilty in the Arizona case, according to the deal hashed out with Yuma prosecutors, Lil Wayne is now expected to receive just three years’ probation.
The MC’s Arizona-based lawyer was unavailable for comment. Sentencing is set for June 30.
