Guerilla Black was sentenced to over nine years in prison on Friday on charges of credit card fraud. The rapper, born Charles Tony Williamson, pled guilty to having stolen over 27,000 credit card numbers from a Maryland hacker, who had stolen these numbers from businesses in Seattle. Following Black's release from prison, he will be on supervised release for five years.

Despite being from the West Coast, Black drew comparisons to the Notorious B.I.G. due to his facial appearance and his voice. He released two albums in his career, Guerilla City and God Bless The Child. While the first album was far more anticipated, neither album was commercially successful.
