Rapper Pete Nice Assists FBI In Stolen Baseball Card Investigation

    By Roman Wolfe

    Veteran rapper Pete Nice of 3rd Bass fame is ensnared in a legal battle with a former business partner that has lead to an FBI investigation over missing baseball memorabilia from the New York Public Library.

     

    In addition to rapping, Pete Nice, born Peter Nash, was a well known baseball memorabilia collector in his post-rap days.

     

    According to the New York Times, Pete Nice in an expert on baseball history, while collector Rob Lifson is president of Robert Edwards Auctions, a prestigious sports memorabilia auction firm.

     

    The relationship went sour when Lifson accused Pete Nice of failing to payback hundreds of thousands of dollars in loans, while Pete Nice claimed Lifson sold pieces he used as collateral for the loans, without permission.

     

    In December, the former rapper lost a judgment when a judge awarded Lifson a $760,000 judgment.

     

    Pete Nice has now hit back with allegations that Lifson, who was caught stealing from the library as a teen in the late 1970’s, allegedly stole or sold valuable items swiped from the New York Public Library.

     

    "I've assisted the FBI and New York Public Library in their recovery efforts and in light of their ongoing investigations,” Pete Nice told The New York Times in a statement. “It would be inappropriate for me to comment at this time."

     

    In a statement to the New York Daily News, Lifson claims Pete Nice is just a disgruntled former business partner who lost a judgment.

     

    "I want to set the record straight regarding untrue accusations promoted (via rumor and innuendo) by a very few individuals who wish to attempt to hurt my reputation by suggesting that I am responsible in any way for the theft of any of the missing items that have been stolen over the years from the collection of the New York Public Library."

    Why would anyone call him a snitch or compare him to any current rapper??  Pete Nice is known by practically NOBODY today unless you an adult

    And for the record Pete turned on his rap partner MC Serch back in the day so basically his bitch ass is a snitch but just on a different level

    yeah he told on dude cause he lost the judgement and had to pay $760,00. he knew what dude did and never said anything so all that time he was accessory after the fact....and like someone said no one cares about him. but i get why this is news tho, he was a rapper at one point.

    In order to be considered a snitch the individual has to be charged with a crime and facing jail time, I am still amazed at the amount of people who don't understand that elementary fact. Pete didn't do anything illegal and is not facing jail time therefore it's impossible for him to be a snitch. But I understand how the ignorant fools think, that anyone who even has a conversation with the authorities will be labeled a snitch even if they are not. It just highlights that willful ignorance runs rampant in hip hop whereas the rest of us with a simple dictionary understands what it means to be a snitch not the stupid hip hop definition.

    no one has to be charged with a crime in order to be snitched on! are you serious?? I dont know where you from homie but snitchin is whenever someone volunteers information about some else that can get them in trouble PERIOD! it can be something as simple as a nigga tellin someones girl that thay saw em with another broad. I bet 85% of niggas snitchin aint being charged with no god damn crime, they just some buster ass niggas that get down like that!!

    I see where u goin wit dis but its false a snitch is a person who gives any information 2 the authorities to save his/her self, out of spite, or jus plain ol dont like da muthafucka, in attempt to asisst them wit the arrest and capture of the person that commited a crime..... In other words if u not wearin a badge and u helpin wit da investigation u snitchin in most cases cuz I cant get wit dat shit dat Cam'ron said on 60 minutes... There are some situations where snitchin is accepted of course none of da internet super thugs will agree but real people dat live real lives know dat if its a life or death situation wit ur children or any one else's children its up to the responsible adult to do the right thing

    BIGEAST76CIDE said:

    @BestEver i understand your angle on the whole snitchin issue and your right it is appropriate to alert authorities in life or death situations involving childrens lives etc. My point is simply that you dont necessarily have to be assisting in the arrest of another individual to be considered a snitch. Now in this particular case wether or not dude is brought up on charges is irrelevant, the fact remains that someone TOLD on him PERIOD!

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    And how do you that to be a fact? What additional factual information do you have that hasn't already been reported? Remember the crux of the original case was Pete accused him of selling his collateral which is patently illegal in business. That's like you taking a loan out against the equity in your house and the bank selling your house right underneath your nose. So what proof do you have that Pete had any idea he was stealing?

The fact that dude sold some of his stuff that he used as collateral is besides the point. he's just pissed at that judgement and decided to turn sur rat out of spite. That my friend is SNITCHING....

    He haven't rapped since I was  a kid and AHH is tossing his name on the site because he helped the FBI. Now because of this there will be about 100 comments about "the rules of snitching". It's like we pay care more about who snitched on this or that, that have nothing to do with our real life situations.

    LOL I guess I got to do Hood Webster for yall niggas again. A snitch(noun) is a person "involved" in criminal activities that voluntarily surrender's factual information to law enforcement pertaining to events and individuals present at the time the acts were committed. So he aint snitchin unless he was doin dirt too but he still a fuck nigga for bein an informant but just a citizen if he aint doin nothin illegal.
