The rapper, born Ackquille Pollard, and his family are feeling "frustrated," according to The Fader, as the Brooklyn native's request for bail was denied a seventh time since his December 2014 arrest. The judge, Abraham Clott, said that he is "satisfied that the case is extraordinarily serious."
According to TMZ, the rapper's lawyer, Alex Spiro, asked that the court lower his bail from its current $2 million amount, based on an estimated $20 million net worth. Instead, Spiro says his client's net worth is close to half a million dollars.
