An associate of rapper Waka Flocka Flame has been found guilty of three counts of murder.
The verdict for aspiring hip-hop star Ra Diggs, real name Ronald Herron, was revealed in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday (26Jun14). He was found guilty on all 21 counts he faced, including racketeering and drug trafficking, as well as the killing of Frederick Brooks in 2001, Richard Russo in 2008, and Victor Zapata in 2009, according to the New York Times.
Herron, 32, has been behind bars for two years on federal charges for running a crack and heroin ring.
His case was an unusual one as prosecutors used the rap videos he posted on YouTube.com as evidence against him during the trial.
Herron's lyrics boast he was a high-ranking member of the Bloods gang who beat a murder case, as well as bragging about getting even with his rivals.
Herron will be sentenced on 1 October (14), and faces life in prison.
