Star Witness In N.O. Drug Boss Wild Telly Hankton’s Trial Back In The Can, Arrested In Shooting

June 11, 2020 – Hankton Boys Gang turncoat Jerod (Fedi Wap) Fedison is in trouble with the law again in New Orleans. He’s currently cooling his heels in the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center and Telly Hankton is probably ecstatic at the news, considering Fedison’s testimony helped put him behind bars for the rest of his life.

The 38-year old Fedison, who four years ago was a star witness at the federal drug and murder trial of Crescent City kingpin “Wild Telly” Hankton, was arrested for attempted murder last week. Back in early May, he allegedly opened fire on a car with three passengers in it in Jefferson Parish. One of the men inside the vehicle was wounded.

The Hankton Boys Gang ran the New Orleans dope game in the 1990s and 2000s. The organization had affiliations with the Cash Money Records rap label, Cash Money founders, the Williams brothers, and the label’s cornerstone act Lil’ Wayne.

In 2009, “Fedi Wap” Fedison and seminal Cash Money artist Christopher (B.G.) Dorsey were charged with weapons offenses when the pair were pulled over in a stolen car leaving his girlfriend’s house and police found three unregistered guns. Fedison was given 20 years in the case but got out early by cutting a deal to testify against Wild Telly Hankton and his main enforcer Walter (Moonie) Porter at their highly-publicized 2016 trial.

Fedi Wap was in Porter’s crew and met Hankton through Porter in the late 2000s upon Porter campaigning to join the Hankton Boys Gang and quickly shooting up the ranks to become the gang’s No. 1 triggerman. B.G. name-checked Moonie Porter in his raps before being sent to prison for 14 years in the gun case he took with Fedison.
