‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ Star Arkansas Mo Sentenced To 17.5 Years For PPP Fraud


 The federal government ain’t playing with it comes to

fraud—especially those using money from the

Paycheck Protection Program, aka PPL loan, for

purposes other than business. According to new

documents obtained by sources, former ‘Love And

Hip Hop: Atlanta’ star Arkansas Mo, born Mo Fayne,

the ex-husband of Karlie Redd, is about to serve 17.5

years in prison after pleading guilty to 6 counts,

including bank and wire fraud.


As we previously reported, Mo used his PPP loan to

cover $40k in past-due child support, $85k jewelry,

$136k for a Rolls-Royce, and $907k to start a new

business in Arkansas. According to the Dept. of

Justice, he submitted a $3.7 million PPP loan

application and falsely claimed his trucking business

had 107 employees, which averaged monthly payroll

of $1,490,200. Once Mo returns to prison, he won’t be

off the hook just yet. He will be on supervised release

for 5 years and is ordered to pay $4,465,865.55 in


Once news broke, people wondered what would be

the fate of Baby Blue’s future, as he also was hit with

multiple charges, including wire fraud, bank fraud,

and conspiracy to commit wire fraud, for his alleged

involvement in a PPP loan scam for more than $24

million. As we previously reported in May, reports

state he was expected to plead guilty in that case. At

the time, he wasn’t worried about the charges. At the

time, he spoke with Hollywood Unlocked and

expressed that his possible jail time really wouldn’t be

too much of an issue. “I ain’t tripping. When I get out,

imma be ripped up like Gucci Mane, and imma be one

of the hottest rappers in the world,” he said. “My new

single ‘Up Again’ drop Friday! I’m talking ’bout them

f*ck n*ggas who TRIED to rob me but ain’t get sh*t!”

17 years will hold ya. Keep ya head up Mo.
