'Sell Drugsz' rapper sentenced for trafficking heroin, fentanyl

Rhode Island rapper Michael Persaud, aka "Montana Millz," 30, whose songs include "Sell Drugsz" and "Feds Watching" was sentenced to three years in federal prison for trafficking heroin and fentanyl.

Police began covert surveillance due to the fact that the lyrics of his songs all too often mentioned drugs. Last March police executed a search warrant at the home of the mother of one of Persaud's children, where they seized 44 grams of fentanyl he had hidden in the residence. Persaud also faces sentencing on similar charges out of Pennsylvania, where he was convicted in August.
