CelebNReality247.com has been doing our research as always and we have some interesting tea spilling on Akbar Abdul Ahad.

Who is Akbar Abdul Ahad?

He is a Minnesota native and a former basketball standout who was busted in a sting operation. The now Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 newbie was arrested and put behind bar’s back in 08. We know that he NEVER wants to go back there.

In 2008, Agent David Voth of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) submitted the affidavit in support of the search warrant for the Meal Ticket Foods store located at 1168 Selby Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The ATF, working with the Minneapolis Police Violent Offender Task Force, believed that Black P-Stone gang members owned and operated the Meal Ticket Foods business. Officers had identified the owner of the business as Akbar Abdul-Ahad, a known member of the Black P-Stone street gang, and the co-owner as Vito Corleone Williams.

In April of 2008, Akbar was caught on wiretap speaking to Vito, the conversation was incriminating as the two spoke about hidden “heat” at the Meal Ticket Foods store location. It was that wiretap that put Ahad behind bars. For complete backstory click here…

To get a clear picture of Ahad’s past before landing a small role on the reboot of Dallas on the CW, he tried to suppress evidence which landed him in prison (court Docs)

In a recent interview, Akbar speaks about his upbringing and why he doesn’t do drugs, drink or smoke. See, his mother and father were crack addicts and he refused to follow in their footsteps.
