(AllHipHop Rumors) Funny Mike made a lot of noise with his music in 2017. The YouTube/Instagram comedian first began making waves after his parody videos of rapper Kevin Gates.
However, he didn't begin to really make noise until he began doing parody videos of 21 Savage.
His parody videos as 22 Savage were so good that people began to take him serious as a rap artist. The run was short lived after a brief back and forth with the real 21 Savage.
The comedian is now preparing for his addition to the MTV comedy series "Wild 'N Out." Funny Mike began his music ascension as part of the Baton Rouge, LA record company Travis James Entertainment.
Recently their CEO reportedly ran into some legal problems after being caught up in a massive drug trafficking sting. According to the indictment papers, the investigations focused on drug networks ran by James C. Hull, known as "Fat Boy," Travis R. James, and Bryron A. Lawson, known as "B."
Their alleged paths flowed through Houston, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Prairieville, LA and Hattiesburg, MS. The charges are serious with law enforcement stating money was exchanged by several individuals.
A total of 41 people were arrested and charged with more than 80 counts of narcotics and firearms offenses. Law enforcement officials did make sure to include one interesting point. They said they didn't identify the 41 people indicted as being part of a gang.
However, they did say they were all working for a major drug trafficking organization.
