Back in June 2020, 31 members of the alleged street gang, NOB ( an abbreviation for Norton, Olney and Barry streets in Dorchester, MA.), were arrested on numerous charges, including racketeering conspiracy (RICO), violent crimes in aid of racketeering, drug trafficking, firearms charges and more.

Among the 31 arrested were HSM rappers: 7981 Kal, G Fredo, and Hamma Thang.

According to the U.S. District Attorney Office via the Department of Justice, 7981 Kal, born Kelvin Barros, and G Fredo, born Michael Brandao, were charged with RICO conspiracy, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, while Hamma Thang, born Samael Mathieu, was charged with RICO conspiracy and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

On Thursday, June 30, 2022, all three artists were convicted on their aforementioned charges. According to NBC Boston, ten of the 31 members of NOB that were arrested “all pleaded guilty to various offenses in recent weeks, with the final two defendants pleading guilty last week.”

The defendants are scheduled to be sentenced between September and November of 2022.

According to the Department of Justice, “the charges of RICO conspiracy and committing violent crimes in aid of racketeering each provide for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000; charges of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances each provide for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $1 million.”

Last month, 7981 Kal’s team released the video to his single, “G-Code.”
