PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A Johnston rapper whose songs include “Sell Drugsz” and “Feds Watching” has been sentenced to 36 months in federal prison for trafficking heroin and fentanyl, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen G. Dambruch.

Michael Persaud, 30, who is also known as “Montana Millz,” pleaded guilty in October, admitting that, during a five-month period, he arranged for the sale and delivery of nearly 22 grams of fentanyl and 2 grams of heroin to an undercover East Providence detective.

In at least two instances, Persaud was driven by his girlfriend and mother of three of his children to deliver fentanyl to the detective.

Officers seized an additional 44 grams of fentanyl from Persaud during a court-authorized search of the Providence residence of the mother of one of Persaud’s children, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

U.S. District Court Judge John J. McConnell sentenced Persaud.

Persaud also faces sentencing in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, having been convicted in August on 16 drug-trafficking and conspiracy charges there.
