Trottie Y Gizzle, Trottie Moula, Ricky Mazarati, and More Face New RICO Conspiracy Indictment miixtapechiick

Boston-based rappers Trottie Y Gizzle, born Jaquori Lyons; Trottie Moula, born Trevon Bell; Ricky Mazarati, born Rickquille McKinney; and 37 others found themselves at the center of a federal indictment in Boston on Wednesday, Feb. 14. The charges stem from a two-year investigation into gang violence, resulting in over 40 individuals associated with the Heath Street Gang facing charges ranging from racketeering conspiracy to drug trafficking, firearms offenses, wire fraud, and various financial frauds, including COVID-related fraud.

The indictment, released by the U.S. Department of Justice, reveals that the Heath Street Gang members and associates are implicated in a series of murders, attempted murders, and shootings, primarily targeting rival gangs such as the Mission Hill Gang and the H-Block Gang in Boston.

Furthermore, the accused are alleged to have used the Mildred C. Hailey Apartments as a hub for drug trafficking activities, establishing extensive drug distribution networks across Massachusetts, Maine, and California over several years. The gang reportedly utilized social media platforms to facilitate the distribution of controlled substances, including fentanyl, fentanyl pills, cocaine, cocaine base, and marijuana, employing posts for advertising, negotiation, and arrangement of drug sales.

The financial aspect of the indictment includes accusations of engaging in organized retail theft, where members openly stole merchandise from various stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire since 2019. Additionally, the Heath Street Gang is implicated in widespread fraud related to the CARES Act, including loan and unemployment fraud.

Acting Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy, in a press conference, highlighted the defendants’ boastful display of violence on social media, featuring images of high-powered weapons, gang signs, and taunts directed at rival gangs.

“They bragged about their violence on social media and in texts. As you can see from some of these photos, they carried high-powered weapons, they made gang signs, and mocked gang rivals.”


The charges, including RICO conspiracy, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, possession of a firearm in furtherance of violent or drug trafficking crime, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery (Hobbs Act conspiracy), and wire fraud, carry severe penalties. These penalties range from up to 20 years in prison for RICO conspiracy to mandatory consecutive sentences of five years in prison up to life for possession of a firearm in furtherance of violent or drug trafficking crime.
