MTO News has learned that twenty of NYC’s most prominent drill rappers were detained yesterday in a massive sting operation.
The rappers were not arrested for their music. Police say that the drill rappers were actually ruthless gang members, including four adolescents, who caused a reign of terror on communities in the Bronx where residents were shot, stabbed, and sodomized over the course of more than three years..
Prosecutors claim that the suspects were members of the G-Side/Drilly Gang, a subset Bloods Sex Money Murder, which is responsible for numerous acts of violence, mostly in the Bronx, between September 20, 2018, and March 15, 2022.

We’re doing all that we can to deal with and battle the guns scourge that is happening here in the Bronx. It is important to do more to remove these young people from the cycle of violence and gangs.
