Blueface sets for Vegas shoot
Rapper Blueface, whose real name is Jonathan Jamall Porter, was sentenced to three years probation on Monday for a shooting at a Las Vegas strip club.
Porter, 26, came to his sentence after accepting a plea deal. He will avoid prison time if he completes his probation without any problems.
is not allowed to contact the shooting victim
The judge in the case ordered the rapper, who rose to fame in 2018 with the track “Thotiana,” to avoid contact with firearms and illegal drugs. He also is not allowed to contact the shooting victim and is only allowed to visit the Las Vegas Strip or downtown for business purposes.
Blueface’s probationary period will not exceed three years and he may receive reduced fees if he completes the period without impairment. Clark County District Court Judge Kathleen E. Delaney said Blueface still faces prison time if he violates the terms of his probation.
“We were pleased that the court followed the parties’ negotiations in this matter,” said Blueface’s lawyer, Kristina Wildeveld. “Mr. Ultimately, Porter is just looking forward to refocusing on his music career and moving forward with his life.”
Traylor was shot in the left hand and managed to avoid serious injury.
It details the shooting of a man named Kentabius Traylor in front of the Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club in Vegas on October 8, 2022. Traylor was shot in the left hand and was able to avoid serious injury.
The shooting occurred after Blueface and Traylor had a heated conversation at the club. The latter was also reportedly attacked by the rapper’s entourage, although they did not face any legal punishment.
According to Las Vegas television station KTNV, Blueface was arrested last November on charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a prohibited person and discharging a firearm into an occupied building. He pleaded guilty to discharging a firearm into an inhabited structure and battery in July. The other charges were dropped.
The facility has been closed since the shooting.
The Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club also filed lawsuits against Blueface after it was forced to close its doors following the shooting. The owner is hoping for more than $15,000 in damages and cites the rapper as the reason for the club’s failure.
“As a direct result of [Blueface’s] “In cases of negligence, willful and/or reckless conduct, the club’s licenses were revoked,” states a lawsuit filed last December.
It is understood that both lawsuits are still pending in civil court.
arrested for robbery in June
Blueface is no stranger to conflicts with the law. He was arrested in June for robbery and allegedly stealing a woman’s cellphone at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas after she used the phone to record a video of his girlfriend, Chrisean Rock.
He was also taken into custody in 2022 and 2019 on weapons charges.
In 2021, he attacked a bouncer at a nightclub who refused him entry, leading to police intervention. In 2018, he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
Blueface is also a popular figure online, not only because of his music but also because of his divisive family relationships. He and his girlfriend often make headlines for arguments and scandalous acts. Blueface also recently caused controversy for posting pictures of his son’s genitals on social media.
The rapper’s last album titled “Famous Cryp (Reloaded)” was released in 2020. It peaked at number 29 on the US Billboard Top 200 and number 17 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
