In 1990, the London native plead guilty to two counts of attempted murder, assault, use of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon after an incident with a former employee. Four years after his 1997 release, he was arrested by Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) trying to reenter the country following shows in the Caribbean. The rapper spent the next five years fighting deportation in court.
