A night of partying ended with deputies arresting dozens of people – including a rapper known as M. Deezy – in a raid at a popular sports bar in Coweta County, Georgia.

The Sheriff’s Office told WSB-TV’s Chris Jose that the business, Hoops Bar and Grill, has been under surveillance for months.

Deputies say the raid started with a marijuana complaint. The sheriff said the odor was so strong that you could smell it when you drove by the bar.

"Through the great social media, we were invited so we went and we showed up," Sheriff Mike Yeagar said.

Inside, deputies say they found drugs and arrested two dozen people for probation violations.

"They had their guns out. They had the task force, probation officers," Jasmine Ball said. "When they came in, they said the quickest way out of here is women on this side and men on this side. They didn't check no women."

Witnesses told Jose they were there for a “Welcome Home” party for their friend Mondell Whitaker, aka rapper M. Deezy, who had just been released from prison on Thursday.

"It's devastating. The moment we finally get out of the house, something like this happens," Kahlia Hill said.

Hill's husband was arrested in the raid.

"All of a sudden police and probation officers just bust in from like every entrance," she said.

Whitaker's mother told Jose that the raid happened in the middle of her son's performance.

"He keeps getting harassed. He's just trying to go to the club to perform and make money," she said.

The first phase of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum, projected to cost $150 million, will open in Harlem next February, according to Newsweek. Hip Hop Hall Fame, a nonprofit that aims to preserve and conduct research on the socioeconomic and cultural impact of hip-hop music, announced the plans for the museum last week.

The first phase of the new project is slated to include a cafe, a gallery, a visitors bureau and a gift store on the ground floor, and on the second floor, a museum, event space, offices and a multimedia studio, according to a news release.

The second phase will expand to 20 stories and include a hotel, mall, gift shop, an arcade, concert lounge and restaurant.

James “JT” Thompson, who founded the Hip Hop Hall of Fame in 1996, has been working to bring the hip-hop museum and complex to life for several years, according to the New York Post.

“This has been a labor of love. It’s had its valleys, mountains, peaks and falloffs,” Thompson told the Post in reference to museum plans halting following the deaths of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.

Pending the successful fundraising campaign for the museum, Thompson will see the fruits of his labor after 20 years.

“Hip-hop is about empowering yourself, moving beyond the music,” he told the Post. “The HHHOF and I have a duty and responsibility to preserve this rich history of music and culture.”
