A Baltimore rapper was just sentenced to 15 years in prison and could face up to 40 years behind bars following his recent conviction.

On Tuesday (February 13), Lor X was sentenced by Circuit Judge Lawrence R. Daniels in his case, where he faced charges for overseeing a gang that distributed fentanyl throughout Southwest Baltimore. Daniels originally imposed the total sentence of 40 years for Lor X, whose legal name is Xavier Johnson. However, Daniels suspended a large chunk of the sentence as a sort of contingency plan in regards to Johnson’s rehabilitation.

“He’s going to have 25 years hanging over his head,” Daniels said. “I got to tell you, Mr. Johnson, if you so much as spit on the sidewalk, I’ll give you all of it.”

In 2020, Johnson was apart of an 18-person indictment spawned by the discovery of fentanyl during a residential eviction. According to Investigators from the Drug Enforcement Administration and Maryland State Police, Johnson had a crew that maintained “several stash houses to store drugs and guns.”

Last September, Johnson plead guilty to one count of “organizing, supervising and financing a gang,” and “two counts of being in possession of large quantities of a mixture of drugs containing fentanyl.” Based on the plea agreement he accepted, Johnson will not be eligible for parole for the first 10 years of his sentence.
