A Lower Mainland gangster rapper wanted in two provinces and linked to a recent spike in gang violence has slipped across the border into the U.S., Postmedia News has learned.

Naseem Ali Mohammed, 22, and two associates allegedly snuck into Montana from B.C. about 9 a.m. on Jan. 23, “dressed in camouflage and dark clothing and carrying black backpacks,” according to U.S. court documents.

U.S. border agents found the trio in a Nissan Sentra driven by an American waiting for them on the Montana side.

But Mohammed was released the same day after the agents ran his fingerprints and found no criminal convictions or previous U.S. immigration violations.

Then they got more information from B.C.

“Upon further investigation with law enforcement partners in Canada, he is a known gang member and suspect in multiple homicides spanning two provinces,” the documents state without providing details on the murder allegations.

Now police on both sides of the border are searching for the fugitive, who is facing a new U.S. charge of “improper entry by an alien.”

Mohammed, a member of the Brothers Keepers gang, has been escalating tensions for weeks in the Lower Mainland gang conflict by posting violent rap songs and live videos on Instagram advocating murder and celebrating hits on rivals such as Red Scorpion Gary Kang, who started a group called BIBO — or Blood In, Blood Out.

Kang was gunned down Jan. 6 inside his parents’ South Surrey home.

Surrey RCMP Sgt. Elenore Sturko confirmed that police have been monitoring some of the brazen social media posts put up by Mohammed, who is also known as “Little Man.”

“The RCMP is currently working with the U.S. Homeland Security to locate and arrest him,” Sturko said.

In one video posted on an Instagram site named BIBO Killers, Mohammed flashes a firearm, boasts about the high cost of his Louis Vuitton backpack, and says, “f–k BIBO … I will smoke you myself. You are all pussies.”

Last week, he even invited a BIBO/Kang rival — Ekene Anigbo, also known as rapper Lolo Lanski — onto his live video chat and they insulted each other for several minutes as hundreds of viewers watched, all while on the run from police in Ontario and B.C.

A year ago this week, Mohammed was arrested in West Vancouver and sent to Ontario on charges of unlawful confinement, assault, pointing a firearm, uttering death threats, theft and robbery.

Peel Regional Police Const. Sarah Patten said at the time that the charges related to a dispute with another man that allegedly took place in a vehicle on Dec. 12, 2019.

Mohammed was granted bail and ordered to stay at his parents’ Surrey home. But when the Gang Enforcement Team did a curfew check on March 2, he slammed the door on them and escaped, leading to charges of breaching a release order, wilfully resisting a peace officer, and escaping lawfully custody.

Mohammed, who is also a suspect in other gang investigations, has been on the run ever since.

But that hasn’t stopped him from maintaining a prominent social media profile and disparaging rivals both before and after their murders.

He even dropped a new rap song called Shirt two weeks ago and invited inquiries to be made via email. He did not respond to a Postmedia request for comment sent to that email.

Shirt’s lyrics reference putting a, “n—a on a shirt, put that n—a in the dirt. Shot first, had to get his ass murked.”

Mohammed also says in Shirt that the “feds trying to find me. F–k the Crown and the jury.”

He has also called out the Bacon brothers, in particular Jamie Bacon, who was close to Kang. Kang’s supporters and others have been trash-talking Mohammed online as well, even falsely claiming last weekend that he had been shot to death after a lull in his Instagram posting which corresponded with his trip to southeastern B.C. to cross the border.

His “opps,” or rivals, have also attacked Brothers Keepers founder Gavinder Grewal, who was shot to death on Dec. 22, 2017 in the North Vancouver luxury condo he rented. In fact, Anigbo posted a song called Dedman last year attacking the Brothers Keepers founder that included the recorded 911 call his brother made after finding his body.

Mohammed also started a Twitter account this month.

On Jan. 20, he posted that he “ain’t no rapper ima mother–king grave digga.” On Jan. 13, he tweeted: “I never wish death on anyone I bring death to anyone.”
