Whew! Y’all PPPlease put some prayers up for Pretty Ricky’s Baby Blue because life has been coming at him fast as of late. He was recently involved in a shooting that left him hospitalized and now that he is recovering, he is gearing up to enter a plea in his PPP loan fraud case.
As we previously reported, Baby Blue was hit with multiple charges, including wire fraud, bank fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud, for his alleged involvement in a PPP loan scam for more than $24 million. According to reports, he is expected to plead guilty in that case in a few weeks, but apparently he isn’t trippin’!
Baby Blue spoke with Hollywood Unlocked and expressed that his possible jail time really won’t be too much of an issue.
“I ain’t tripping. When I get out, imma be ripped up like Gucci Mane and imma be one of the hottest rappers in the world,” he said. “My new single ‘Up Again’ drop Friday! I’m talking ’bout them f*ck n*ggas who TRIED to rob me but ain’t get sh*t!”
He also thanked his fans for helping him get through the tragedy of being shot, and notes that he will miss his children in the event he has to spend some time behind bars.
“Thankful to be alive! All Glory to God,” he continued. “Love my fans, family and friends for sticking with a n*gga through everything! All them prayers definitely saved my life! Only thing ima really miss is time away from my kids.”
Baby Blue is reportedly set to appear before U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke on June 9th, where he is expected to enter a guilty plea to at least one federal offense in the case.
