Prakazrel “Pras” Michél, who turned 50 last fall, was rap royalty back in the day. Low, now charged with numerous federal crimes, is a fugitive from justice and believed to be in China, according to authorities. Ultimately, even though Guo wasn’t deported, Michél received “over $70 million” from Low, according to Lockhart. Guo has since been indicted by a federal grand jury in New York in an unrelated financial fraud case.
