Lil Phat Killed By Russian Mobster?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Lil Phat is a rapper and the son of Mel, owner of Trill Entertainment, the label that Lil Boosie and Webbie are signed to out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana





DA: Known mobster put out hit that killed hip-hop artist at Northside Hospital



Channel 2 Action News has confirmed that three of four suspects in the high-profile murder of hip-hop artist Lil Phat are now in custody.

Among the accused is convicted Russian mobster Mani Chulpayev, whom Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland exposed in a Channel 2 investigation focusing on Chulpayev's Atlanta car business.

Authorities said Lil Phat was involved in one of those deals.

"I termed it an assassination," District Attorney Paul Howard told Strickland about the killing.

The shooting happened June 7, 2012, in a parking ramp at Northside Hospital in Atlanta.

Howard says Lil Phat, born Melvin Vernell III, was there and about to become a father. He was sitting in an Audi A7 when he was shot repeatedly.

Howard said Lil Phat got the car from Chulpayev and that Chulpayev used a GPS tracker to locate the victim.

Chulpayev is accused of ordering a contract killing, using two gunmen from Alabama.

''He was stalked by these two hit men. It was planned," Howard said.

Howard said Lil Phat had told police only two days earlier Chulpayev had also leased him a BMW that had been reported stolen. Lil Phat was pulled over for speeding in April and was subsequently charged with receiving a stolen car.

Howard said silencing the rapper was at least part of the motive.

"Mani had nothing against this kid and grieved when he found out he was killed," defense attorney George Plumides told Strickland.

Plumides represented Lil Phat on the stolen car charge. Plumides said Chulpayev has an alibi and questions why officers armed with machine guns swarmed to make the arrest.

An investigative crew from ABC News that has teamed with Strickland for months to follow the story was watching as police wisked Chulpayev away in a SWAT vehicle during his arrest April 12 in Broward County, Fla.

"They put him out of business, and they got nothing," insisted Plumides.

"If it had not been for your story, some of the evidence that we've located might not have been located within the same reasonable period," Howard told Strickland.

Chulpayev's attorney said he'll waive extradition and be transported soon to face charges in Atlanta.

Didn't expect that. There is a video about it on that well known ignorant rap website if anyone cares to check it out.


They say that the Russian dude has a history of being involved with stolen vehicles, and it is alleged that he was a federal snitch. Lil Phat was pulled over in the Audi he bought from dude and told the police who he bought it from because they claimed that it was stolen. He told them that he copped a BMW from the dude which also turned out to be stolen.

That man survived Baton Rouge and winds up in Atlanta getting killed by a Russian gangster. mean.gif



On a side note, Marlo Mike was found guilty of first degree murder and Boosie's name was all in the trial. I predict some Fed charges right before he is scheduled to get released from his state bid.

there was a similar case here in Houston, no murder but a rapper in a dispute with this same Russian Mobster over a car

 

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/video?id=8976201

 

 

This is a tale of fast cars and fast deals, with a direct tie to one of the country's most notorious criminal enterprises.

 

It's a case that seems ripped from the script of a Hollywood crime drama. It's got it all: luxury cars, big cash, a Houston rapper and businessman, an NFL wide receiver, the U.S. Department of Justice and at the center of this web, a notorious Russian mobster.

"Can you believe who you were tied up with?" we asked Houston rapper and businessman Norman Simmons.

"It hasn't really hit me yet but I know it's pretty big stuff," Simmons replied.

A mobster so brazen, we're told he climbed the fence of a Missouri City home to claw back a $145,000 car he sold Simmons just months earlier.

"What did he say?" we asked Simmons.

"You need to give it back, you don't know who you're dealing with, so I was like I need to get my money, I need to get my money back," Simmons replied.

Nothing about Simmons is understated. He's a business owner and a rapper known as "The President."

He says that White House chain around his neck has 100 carats worth of diamonds. In the last few years, he's bought close to a million dollars in cars and trucks. He took us for a ride in his $250,000 bright yellow Bentley.

His cars are usually bought through private brokers.

"Everything was legit so you wouldn't expect the outcome to be where we are now," Simmons said.

And the broker in this case did, selling Simmons an $82,000 Porche Panamera he couldn't resist.

"We did a deal on the spot," Simmons said.

Months later, Mani the broker had another proposition for The President.

"He called me and said, 'Hey, I got a car that you will love,'" Simmons said.

It was a $145,000 Mercedes. He bought it. But something was wrong: $230,000 into these deals, Simmons had two great cars but no titles.

"Do you think he had any intention of ever letting you keep this cars?" we asked Simmons.

"No," he replied.

Court documents filed by Simmons' lawyers suggest the cars were never Mani's to sell in the first place.

According to court filings, the Mercedes belonged to former New York Giants' Steve Smith. When Mani allegedly didn't pay Smith, the superstar wide receiver demanded the Mercedes back. So that's when we're told Mani hopped that Missouri City fence. Simmons says the Mercedes disappeared one day while he was gone.

What Simmons didn't realize was that the man he was buying cars from had a far darker past.

A New York Post columnist once referred to Mani Chulpayev as testing the "definition of evil, brutal and dishonorable." The New York Times called Mani the brains behind an extortion ring connected to the Russian mafia.

According to press reports, at the time of his guilty plea, Mani set a fire that burned down a whole city block just to send a message. He was eventually arrested delivering a young prostitute to a group of Russian doctors.

"I would never have guessed. He's like 4 feet 8. I'd never guessed that," Simmons said.

But Mani's hardly hiding from his past. He even bragged about it in a 2009 National Geographic documentary. It was called "Brooklyn's Russian Gangsters."

"Sixteen years old I had my first Mercedes, so I went to school just to show off, not to study," he says on the show.

His honesty has helped him in the past, especially when he was busted by the feds in the late 90s. For admitting his role and ratting our his comrades, Mani got in and out of prison in just four years.

"He's the godfather of car salesman," Simmons said.
