Rapper “Fat Trel” arrested for using fake $50 bills at casino in Maryland

Tags: Fat Trel, Martrel Reeves.
Posted on Tuesday, April 05, 2016 by "T".

A famous rapper based in Washington D.C. was arrested last Tuesday, March 29, at the largest casino in Maryland. He was accused of attempting to use counterfeit $50 bills at a craps table to pay for his gambling.

Martrel Reeves, better known by his rapper alias "Fat Trel", age 25, has accordingly been charged with possession of counterfeit currency. Trel is currently signed at Atlantic Records and Rick Ross' label Maybach Music Group.

Court records show that police responded to a call from Maryland Live! casino in the early evening on March 27, Sunday. When the police arrived at the casino premises, they were informed by staff members declaring that Reeves had presented nine pieces of fake $50 bills (worth $450) to a table pit boss. The pit boss, sensing that something is amiss, alerted the casino's security staff even before utilizing a counterfeit detection system that confirmed his suspicions. Police officers said it was easy to detect the fake cash because 8 of the 9 bills have matching serial numbers.

On the other hand, Fat Trel insists that he is innocent, and he says that he got the cash when he made a withdrawal at an ATM located inside a 7-Eleven convenience store in Washington D.C., and he had no clue that the money he withdrew was fake.

However, his Twitter account says a different story:


Reeves' case is actually the second of its kind for this year 2016. Last year, there were a total of 10 cases involving gamblers attempting to use fake cash to pay for their gambling in US-based casinos.

He did not even own a bank card yet has no idea when he is holding counterfeit bills. Truly not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he could have get off with it somewhere else if he uses the bills separatly...
But I'm not gonna help him with more ideas, I think. He should have to figure this one out by himself.

Casino pit boss be like- Hey Fat Trel you should change your name to Fat Tell, lol.
Off you go to jail where you will have time to write an album. Just make sure not to use the same lyrics over and over again ;p

From someone with the stage name "Fat Trel" i had expected to try to fake some higher denominations than a few lousy $50 bills. Those "gangsta" rappers aren't what they used to be.

Fake bills are the bane of life. How dare people think they can scam the monetary function of governments and cheat their fellow,citizens by plunging such degrading dosh into the economy..... And then moan like hell when things cost more and they get less in benefits etc. Maybe our unlucky friend can make something of his predicament by writing a rap about it......

Copyrighted to me........
So there I was putting some dollar on the board
When the dealer said, that ain't no normal hoard
So I looked in surprise that I had been caught
Cos the dollars I had I had only just bought
For a few dollars less than their true face value
And I really could have done with a few more than you
Cos we always want more than others have got
But at least the cops didn't have me shot.
But I made the news with my dodgy dough
But this new law case has some way to go.
So I ain't convicted yet and no sentence in sight
So I ain't done wrong yet and I don't think I might
Get a prison term for a good guy am I
And I promise no more dodgy bills to buy.

Am I that out of touch? Never heard of the guy.

Let me try and write a rap too...

Bitches on my left arm, birches on my right
Slappin' down these fifties all f***ing night
No one here will catch me, there's no cops in sight
But then that eagle eyed f***ing dealer said something isn't right
I tried to play the fame card, said bitch do you know my name?
But nothing could get me off the hook with the serial numbers all the same
I didn't need to do it, I'm making bare dollars from my tracks
But soon I'll be in lock up, hitting honkies with an axe
Cos I'm a stupid crackhead degen, there is no saving me
I had a lot but wanted more, pure stupidity
So the moral of this story? I'm sure there is one there...
Ah f**k it, I'm too stupid... and I don't f***ing care

I think they have new hundred dollar bills for quite some time so they became harder to counterfeit...
