Ramsay Tha Great has been sentenced to 10 years for pimping four women in Orange Count, the Orange County Register reports.
Ramsay is known for producing the hit song “Costa Rica.”
Ramsay, whose real name is Brandon Christopher Ramsay, 25, pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts of pimping and pandering, and one count each of human trafficking and assault with a firearm, all felonies.
The LA district attorney said Ramsay made thousands of dollars a week on the sex workers, according to the New York Daily News.
One of the victims met Ramsay during a music video production when she was 19. The woman, who was not identified, said she was required to make at least $1,000 a day. She was threatened with a gun and choked at least twice when she wanted to quit, according to LA Daily News.
Ramsay was reportedly arrested after investigators with the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force investigated sex-for-hire ads he allegedly posted featuring his 18-year-old girl and a 25-year-old woman, OC District Attorney Tony Rackauckas told the LA Daily News.
An undercover officer arranged to meet the sex workers at a motel on Harbor Boulevard in Anaheim. Ramsay called the women multiple times asking for their location, prosecutors told the LA Daily News.
Ramsay was taken into custody after police spotted him driving into the motel’s parking lot.
Ramsay’s arrest for pimping came less than two weeks after he accused Sosa of breaking into his home and beating him.
Ramsay even threatened Chief Keef with a lawsuit. Ramsay documented his battered face while in the hospital on IG. The popular producer also showed himself in a neck brace.
In an IG post showing himself with cuts, marks and bruises on his face along with a swollen eye and neck brace, Ramsay captioned his post, “[Chief Keef] now if I was a celebrity I wouldn’t come personally jump a person with you five friends and a Ak 47 that’s just dumb your famous ……… now I’m taking everything from you . U really just fucked up dude coming to my house with your phone in your pocket with the location on…….. yea I’m pressing charges on yo ass. You a fucking low life mf niggas out here tryna do positive shit and you still on some goofy Chicago shit . We’ll see u in court.”
Ramsay was firm in his stance to sue Chief Keef, alleging the Glo Gang rapper stole $1,600, a Rolex and an iPhone from him.
“Listen, all the white people on my page talking about kill Chief Keef, do all this, shoot back, I’m a f***k n***a, snitching and all this other s**t. N***a, I don’t give a f**k,” Ramsay said. “He dumb enough to have a $6 million record deal and come in my house and jump me personally, some of that money is coming to me you goofy ass n***a. Anybody who got anything to say about it, I don’t give a f**k. Suck my d**k. I’ma be laughing. All y’all little white kids, y’all just wanna keep the cycle going. All these little white kids, ‘You supposed to kill him, f**k the court s**t.’ F**k the court s**t? I’ finna win $300,000. What are you talking about.”
Ramsay went onto explain the incident.
“I’m chilling in the house, sleeping, I get into an argument with Uncle Ro’s wife Kelly,” he said. “The argument end. I go back into my room, sleep. She called Chief Keef and tried to put him on the phone with me, telling me to calm down. I’m like, ‘I’m calm. I’m just tryna put my point across.’ I go to sleep, 15 minutes later somebody kicing down my door talking about it’s Sosa. So I open my door I done produced a song for him, met him a couple times, I ain’t think nothing was wrong. I opened the door, he pushed me in. A n***a behind him got a draco, AK-47 looking thing. He start hitting me in the face. Tadoe start hitting me in the face. N****s can call me rat, all that. I ain’t never claim to be a gangster, none of that or nothing. I always just claimed to be a producer. Y’all can say I’m a rat or whatever y’all wanna do. But hey, see you in court. He stole me $1600, he stole my ring, he stole my Rolex. I just think someone with $6 million would be a little bit smarter about their actions and showing their face. That’s just not smart.”
Ramsay, ironically, wanted Sosa to serve 10 years for the alleged crime.
“He’s mad at me because he’s about to do 10 to 11 years in prison,” he said.
