Rapper Nines jailed for two years after trying to import £280k of cannabis to UK

UK rapper Nines has been jailed for two years after admitting that he tried to import £280,000 worth of cannabis into the country.

The musician, real name Courtney Leon Freckleton, 31, of Barbican, London, was sentenced today at Harrow Crown Court following his arrest in June for conspiracy to import cannabis and conspiracy to supply cocaine.

He had been arrested following an investigation connected to a number of properties across the capital and Hertfordshire.

He admitted to conspiracy to import cannabis and money laundering in August, but denied the charge of conspiracy to supply cannabis and cocaine.

Those charges were later dropped by the CPS and no further action was taken on them.

Nines, who is a father of two, was sentenced today alongside co-conspirator and business partner, Jason Thompson, 35, of Barnet, north London.

Thompson pleaded guilty to the same charges as Nines and was also jailed for 28 months.

Nines, who is well known for writing the entrance music for boxer Anthony Joshua.
