NEW JERSEY, United States — Dancehall deejay Flippa Mafia was given a 25-year sentence when he appeared in the Camden Superior Court in New Jersey, this morning.
The 37-year-old Jamaican entertainer, whose given name is Andrew Davis, was also ordered to pay a US$250,000 anti-money laundering profiteering penalty.
"Andrew Davis thought he could live the good life in Jamaica with the hundreds of thousands of dollars he and his brothers reaped by shipping cocaine from California into New Jersey," said Acting Attorney General Lougy at the sentencing.
In December 2015, Flippa Mafia was found guilty of first-degree distribution of cocaine, second-degree money laundering, and second-degree conspiracy.
For their involvement, the deejay's brothers – Kemar and Roger Davis – were sentenced in March to 20 and 10 years, respectively.
Known in dancehall circles as the Flossing King and Flippa Moggela, the entertainer was known for hurling hundreds of dollar notes into the crowd during his performances. His more popular songs include Unfinished House and Hear Mi Hear.
