It’s so hard out here in the streets trying to make ends meet that there are rappers’ mamas robbing bank for a piece of change.
According to CBS Miami, a 63-year-old lady named Gail Simpson, was arrested on Tuesday after attempting to rob a Wells Fargo Bank in Florida. The woman is already on probation from an attempted robbery earlier this year, so you already know she’s looking at doing some real time on this bank job.
Simpson allegedly walking into the bank at around 3:30 p.m. and demanded money from the bank employee. Federal officials said she got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery but no one was injured.
According to a tip, Gail Simpson is the alias of deceased rapper Big Pun’s mother Gail Tirado. (A few people search sites verifies this). She was also “allegedly” distraught over the family’s fruitless efforts to recover royalties and revenues owed to the estate of Big Pun when the robbery occurred . Allegedly those monies were stolen by rapper Fat Joe and legendary producer John “Jellybean” Benitez.
In a lawsuit that was filed back in 2009, Big Pun’s wife claims that his family had been forced to live in a homeless shelter after exhausting all of their finances from efforts to try to stop Fat Joe and other unnamed parties from profiting off the deceased rappers’ music and likeness. Fat Joe responded with the statement:
Immediately after Puns death I gave Liza Rios the whole advance of the Endangered Species album, NO ONE but Liza made a dollar off that album. I also gave her the total advance from the publishing company that was due to Big Pun.
