Mad Cobra allegedly held with two kilos of cocaine in the US 

Veteran dancehall artiste Mad Cobra was arrested on Tuesday after deputies in Florence County in South Carolina, USA, pulled him over for a traffic stop and reportedly discovered two kilos of cocaine in the vehicle.

A release from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office said that 55-year-old Ewart Everton Brown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was arrested Tuesday after deputies initiated a traffic stop on his black BMW SUV for speeding along I-95 in Florence County.

Once deputies had Brown stopped, they reportedly had “reasonable suspicion” of criminal activity and asked him for consent to search his vehicle.

During the search, they reportedly discovered two kilos of cocaine and a 9mm Beretta.

Brown now faces charges of trafficking cocaine and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

He was taken into custody and is currently being held at the Florence County Detention Center, awaiting a bond hearing.

Brown, whose stage name is Mad Cobra, was a huge star in the 1990s. He recently enjoyed a surge in popularity as his ‘Flex’ hit was sampled by American singer-actress Janelle Monae in her latest single ‘Lipstick Lover’.

‘Flex’ was included on Mad Cobra’s major label début album ‘Hard to Wet, Easy to Dry’ (Columbia Records).

The single rose to number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number one on the Rap Singles chart, and number 7 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Mad Cobra is also known for the hit singles ‘Press Trigger’, ‘Dis Dem Anyweh’, ‘Dun Wife’, and ‘Defend It’.
