HOUSTON — A 43-year-old Houston-area rapper was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in federal prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
This investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Houston, Texas, and the Houston Police Department.
Mack Biggers, who pleaded guilty to the felony charges Sept. 6, was also sentenced to five years of supervised release to be served immediately following his prison sentence. The sentence includes an upward variance due to Biggers extensive criminal history.
At the hearing, the court heard additional information, including a presentation detailing how Biggers committed his narcotics offenses. For several months in 2017 and 2018, Biggers acquired and sold various narcotics including meth, and he illegally possessed firearms. Biggers also produced and starred in rap videos that glamorized his illegal activities.
On Feb. 21, 2018, authorities conducted surveillance and subsequently arrested Biggers as he attempted to flee from police at an apartment complex located on the 14700 block of West Oaks Plaza Drive in Houston. He threw bags down as he fled. Law enforcement recovered the bags, which were found to contain hundreds of pills made from various substances including meth and heroin.
Biggers remains in federal custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
Assistant U.S. Attorney John Michael Lewis, Southern District of Texas, is prosecuting this case.
