Tsu Surf Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison in RICO Case

Newark battle rapper born Rahjon Cox previously pleaded guilty to federal charges related to leadership role in Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips street gang.

Newark battle rapper Tsu Surf, whose real name is Rahjon Cox, has been handed a mandatory five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conspiracy charges. Facing the possibility of up to 30 years in prison due to his association with the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips gang, Cox opted for a guilty plea, avoiding a trial and potentially harsher penalties.

The U.S. district judge sentenced him to five years in federal prison, indicating a significant reduction from the maximum sentence. Cox was one of ten members of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips facing federal charges related to violence and the distribution of controlled substances in New Jersey and beyond. Allegedly holding a leadership position, Cox was accused of shooting a rival gang member in 2017 and was found in possession of two loaded firearms in 2019.

In addition to the mandatory 60-month prison term without the possibility of parole, Cox was sentenced to three years of supervised release and fined $15,000, as outlined by the Justice Department. Before his legal troubles, Tsu Surf had been making a name for himself in the battle rap scene, releasing the album “Disparu” in 2022, featuring collaborations with artists like Jim Jones and Remy Ma. His earlier works boasted guest appearances from the likes of Young M.A., Mozzy, G Herbo, Benny the Butcher, Wale, and more.
