Former Three 6 Mafia rapper Gangsta Boo has protested her innocence after she was arrested and charged in connection to an armed robbery in Mississippi.
The female MC turned herself in to authorities on Tuesday (08Dec09) after police named her as a suspect in the July (09) incident at an Olive Branch-area dollar store.
She has been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and released on $100,000 (£62,500) bond - although authorities have refused to state the star's exact role in the alleged crime, only claiming she played a major part.
But Gangsta Boo has blasted the allegations and hints she has been "set up".
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "I am innocent and all this bulls**t they talkin' about on me is bulls**t (sic). What innocent person in their right mind won’t turn themselves in... The media couldn’t explain what I did because I wasn’t there."
And she warns, "Remember the system is set up 2 (sic) set u up. Be careful of who you have around you."
One man, identified as Marcus Curtis, has already been charged with felony armed robbery in connection to the incident, reports AllHipHop.com.
Gangsta Boo, previously known as Lady Boo, left the Oscar-winning hip-hop group in 2000 over a financial dispute.
