A Los Angeles rapper just received 10 years in prison for running a prostitution ring using social media. Brandon Christopher Ramsay or, Ramsay Tha Great, plead guilty to pimping out women he met through various social media sites.
One girl, who was not identified, said Ramsay demanded she makes at least $1,000 a day. The woman said when she told the rapper she didn’t want to do it anymore he threatened her with a gun.
The D.A. said Ramsay found his victims online and would use his social media presence to coax them into prostituting themselves for him. His Facebook page was littered with photos of him posting stacks of $100 bills.
Ramsay was busted in February after investigators with the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force contacted one of the women after seeing sex-for-hire ads featuring an 18-year-old girl and a 25-year-old woman.
The rapper pleaded guilty this week to four counts of pimping and pandering, one count of human trafficking and one count of assault with a firearm. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
