Local rapper Mitchy Slick — aka Charles Mitchell — was arrested in Marin County on Tuesday and booked on suspicion of human trafficking, kidnapping, criminal threats, exhibiting a firearm, and participating in a criminal street gang, with bail set at 1.5 million.

Police allege the 40-year-old Slick transported a woman from Southern California and held her captive in a Sleepy Hollow home, where a search warrant was executed last week. Slick turned himself in on Tuesday. No details about the alleged victim have been released yet.

Slick hasn't been shy when talking about gangs. According to Slick at BallerStatus.net, “San Diego look[s] real pretty, on the outside. But where I’m from, San Diego is really on some Blood and Crip shit. It's really got this shit going on. I don’t glorify it; I put it to the forefront because we really get done bad in San Diego. I want you to be aware of what's going on because I know my folks down there are struggling. We don’t have a lot of opportunities being black people. It’s [the city is] dominated by business and the tourism type of shit, and you don’t hear a lot of shit going down in San Diego 'cause they don’t want it to distract the money flow down there. But we’re nowhere near that.”

Slick’s album Urban Survival Syndrome was released in September 2006. “I did this shit all by myself,” he brags. “I’m talking about every aspect, from picking the producers to sequencing the album.”

A cofounding, SD-repping member of SoCal ensemble Strong Arm Steady, his 2010 album Yellow Tape includes his autobiographical song about the Lincoln Park Bloods.

Slick spent much of 2012 on tour, working on a collaborative full-length called Feet Match the Paint with producer DJ Fresh, and recording a new solo album (Won’t Stop Bein’ a Blood) as well as working on new tracks with Strong Arm Steady.

A compilation mixtape, Wrongkind Is Everywhere, Vol. 1, includes samples from his various projects and tracks by performers like Oso Ocean and 2Die4.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, you can quickly read a lot about Mitchy Slick by strolling through photos posted on his MySpace page. Here is just one.

Sept. 4, 2014

According to the Mercury News today, Slick was released with no charges filed, despite the arrest warrant having been issued and bail recommended at 1.5 million. The case is still under investigation and police say charges may still be filed in the future (though it should be noted that Slick isn't the only individual being investigated, and his connection to the home where the woman was allegedly held captive hasn't been established yet).
