Reggiimental Gets Two Years For iTunes Fraud

Whether or not you caught this story in the news, Midlands rapper Reggiimental is facing a two-year stretch for his part in a download scam that cost iTunes and Amazon £1m. The fraud was apparently spotted when iTunes began "paying royalties to what appeared to be utterly unknown artists in the Wolverhampton area at a rate they expect to pay to someone like Madonna".

It's worth pointing out that Reggii didn't mastermind the crime and wasn't responsible for any downloading, but contributed his music. Sadly the father of one has wasted a career as an IT teacher in the process.

Reggiimental has been quietly bubbling away in the scene for a while now and turned in some decent music, not least his odes to the fairer sex on Stand By The Window and new Wizard-produced single, Like You.
