Crunchy Black is about to go from Oscar winner to jailbird as the former Three 6 Mafia rapper just pleaded guilty in a Las Vegas drug case. TMZ reports that Crunchy, 40, is set to spend the next seven months in jail for misdemeanor drug possession.


The rapper was arrested earlier this month for apparently getting his drugs mixed up — no, really. Crunchy was randomly roaming the streets in Sin City when police stopped him and found the meth. Confused by the discovery, the veteran MC thought it was cocaine, instead.

"Oh, damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth," the rapper reportedly told the police.

The Oscar-winning rapper was given 30 days for the drug bust, added on to the six months that he got for a domestic violence case that he skipped out on. Looks like he'll have enough time to study the differences between cocaine and meth while in the slammer. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
