One of Monique Worrell's first acts as the new state attorney for Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orlando was charging rapper 9lokkNine with five counts of attempted murder for a string of violent crimes that occurred in the city last year.
According to the FBI, the rapper is apart of the All Family No Friends Gang aka The Army. Investigators say the gang has been feuding with fellow Orlando rapper Hotboii, who's allegedly affiliated with the 438 Gang.
Last year, five lives were lost as a result of the gang war. The victims included two teenagers and a three-year-old, who were all innocent bystanders.
9lokkNine, whose birth name is Jacquavius Smith, is accused of shooting into an Orlando home this past July while a woman was inside with her children. No one was injured but investigators claim the 20-year-old rapper was targeting another rapper, with one witness stating, "9IokkNine wants to be the only rapper coming from Orlando."
In 2020, 9lokkNine was arrested in July for attempted second-degree murder with a firearm. He was also arrested twice for gun charges. He was also involved in a shootout outside of the Mall at Millennia in October, but he escaped unharmed. The FBI announced a week after the shooting that they were attempting to build a racketeering case against All Family No Friends Gang and the 438 Gang.
