According to Blue, he has been at the center of headlines due to the allegations, but he feels as though he was simply used as a “marketing tool,” citing that his role in the entire process was what is known as “influencer marketing.”
On Aug. 4, the 37-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud upon his arrest in 2020. He was arrested after two of his companies received thousands of dollars in loans.
Throwbackjersey.com LLC received a loan of close to $427,000 and Blue Star Records LLC received a loan of $708,000, Complex reports.
Blue claims that the men who managed to get him the loans were operating as “informants.”
“The n—as who got us the loans turned informants,” he claimed in the interview with VladTV. “They turned to the confidential informants and now they start telling, ‘Oh, we did loans for them and them and them, and they bought this and this and that. But these the same people you ain’t even tell them where the money came from. You told them it was coming from a football agency.”
