C-Rayz was once a prominent fixture in New York’s underground hip-hop scene, but hasn’t been as active in the last couple of years. According to the New York City Department of Correction, he has been held behind bars since Deceased’s 13, 2019 on charges of felony rape.
Details of the case are unavailable, but he is reported to be currently locked down at The Vernon C. Bain Correctional Center in the Bronx. Nicknamed “The Boat”, the facility is an 800-bed jail barge used to hold inmates and anchored off the Bronx’s southern shore, near Hunts Point.
