Benzino is speaking out about his “trumped up” drug charges. The ex “Love & Hip Hop” star is adamant that racists are behind the charges. He also believes that the police had no right searching his pent house apartment, even though a judge has ruled that the cops legally obtained a search warrant.
The 54-year-old is facing up to 15 years in prison on two felony and one misdemeanor drug charges.
