PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island rapper whose songs include "Sell Drugsz" has been sentenced to three years in prison for doing just that.

Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday that 30-year-old Michael Persaud, of Johnston, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Providence for trafficking heroin and fentanyl.

He performs under the name Montana Millz.

Prosecutors say an East Providence undercover detective bought drugs several times from Persaud over a four-month period beginning in October 2016.

Authorities say Persaud sold the detective nearly three-quarters of an ounce of fentanyl and less than a 10th of an ounce of heroin.

Persaud also awaits sentencing in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, where a jury convicted him of drug charges.
