This Young Money rapper is in hot water!
New Orleans native Widner DeGruy, better known as Flow, was taken into custody in connection with a murder.
The 21-year-old, who was signed to Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment, was arrested in Oakland, California by a U.S. Marshal’s task force and returned to his home of Chalmette, Louisiana. DeGruy, who also went by the name Esho Hero, fled to California after a warrant for his arrest had been issued. The warrant alleged that DeGruy had shot at an eastern St. Bernard man, missing him by a hair. They also claimed that Widner beat and robbed that man and another, taking their cash and cellphones.
Detectives were careful not to release information about potential motives for the shooting and robberies and the Sheriff’s Office did not release the victims’ names until much later for fear of retaliation.
DeGruy performs with a band called The Flamez or the Flame Gang Muzik and has released many mixtapes, his first was called Heroic Volume 1. He was also featured on Lil Wayne’s Sorry 4 The Wait and Dedication 4 mixtapes.
He is being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison on $350,000 bond.
