Maryland Rapper Simba Sentenced To 24 Years In Prison For Robbing High School Students At Gunpoint

Rising Maryland rapper Simba will be spending the next two decades in prison for robbing high school students at gunpoint last year, Fox 5 Maryland reports.

Simba, whose real name is Shiloh Young, was sentenced to 24 years in prison the armed robbery.

The 18-year-old rapper is accused of robbing at least five students for their cell phones, jackets and shoes as they were walking back from lunch.

The “500 Bars” rapper was caught after using one of the stolen cell phones to record himself rapping.

Simba was charged with crime alongside friend Timario Gregg who was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Simba and Gregg have reportedly been in trouble with the law in the past.

In 2016, Gregg was charged with possession of a firearm by a minor for his alleged involvement in a deadly shooting.

Last year, Simba was charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. He is still awaiting trial for that case.

“This is a huge win for the community,” Montgomery County Police Lt. Jason Cokinos told Fox 5. “The crime rate that this organization, these leaders were overseeing and encouraging, it will definitely put a dent in crime in the Gaithersburg and Montgomery Village area. People should feel good about the sentences knowing that two violent felons are off the street for a significant period of time.”
