WFPD: Local rapper arrested on more drug charges

Local News

A man who’s been called a major player in the Wichita falls drug trade, and who has a song out about wishing for the death of two Wichita Falls police officers, has new drug charges.

Police say, Cedric Gray, 43, was arrested Friday after a traffic stop at Barwise Street and Texas Avenue. Officers called in a K-9 unit and say the dog alerted to narcotics. Officers say they found 18 baggies containing meth inside a cd box.

Gray was charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance.

Gray was released from federal prison last September where he served a sentence for distribution of crack cocaine. A few days after that, he was arrested at a bail bond company where he worked, police say he was caught on a surveillance camera switching cash paid for bail bonds with counterfeit bills.

In 2006, local stores pulled Gray’s CD off the shelves when police and others complained about one of the songs which threatened two Wichita Falls officers with violent death, which also included lyrics about how nice it would be to see the officers in caskets and their families in tears. 

Just one month ago, gray created a GoFundMe with a goal of $50,000, saying God had blessed him with so much talent that he wanted people to dig in their pockets and to help him to make his dream come true in the music industry, as of today, there were no contributions.
