Juelz Santana studio raided; Skull Gang's Hynief arrested

Police made a surprise visit to Juelz Santana's New Jersey studio, where they found guns, drugs and arrested one of his Skull Gang rappers.

Hynief, real name Toby Raynor, 24, was arrested at "Santana's World" studio in Bergenfield, N.J. on Thursday, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office.

Two fully loaded 9mm handguns, boxes of ammunition and marijuana were found during the raid.

Cops say Hynief on two separate occasions - June 16 and July 1 - sold marijuana to undercover Gang Unit detectives during a 10-month investigation.

A feature story on Santana, published in XXL Magazine in 2009, described the studio as "cozy and carpeted."

Hynief, who is originally from Virginia, is no stranger to trouble.

In a YouTube video, he talks about his long rap sheet, including an attempted murder charge in Virginia. (The Skull Gang crew took the video down, but nothing is ever completely gone on the Internet. Someone else posted the video as well.)

Two days before his arrest, he tweeted, "If you knew better then you'll do better...."

Maybe he'll take his own advice.

He is currently being held in the Bergen County Jail on $50,000 bail.
