(RepublicanJournal.org) – Rapper Sauce Walka was in hot water again after leading police on a high-speed chase and crashing his car. He faces charges of evading arrest or detention using a motor vehicle. The performer is scheduled to appear in court on December 8.
Walka, whose real name is Albert Walker Mondane, led the crazy chase in the early morning hours of October 6. Local media outlet Fox 26 Houston reported that speeds reached up to 130 miles per hour and extended for more than two miles before the 33-year-old rapper crashed. There’s no word on what instigated the chase.
Mondane began his rap career in 2007 as a member of the Houston group Mostheard, using the stage name A-Walk. He shifted gears in 2014, joining forces with Sancho Saucy as one of the Sauce Twinz and began performing under the name Sauce Walka. He also started his independent label, The Sauce Factory, that same year. He currently has 1.6 million Instagram followers.
Mondane’s music reflects his rough Houston childhood, which he describes as “magical and treacherous.” Stereogum shares that he was the son of a drug addict and prostitute, and his mother passed away when he was 25 years old. He lost both of his grandparents young, too, and he claims that taking to a life on the streets was his “therapy.”
This recent incident isn’t Mondane’s first brush with the law. He ran with a gang when he was younger, “Mash Mode,” picking up charges for shooting and injuring someone during a concert at Texas Southern University in 2009. He claims that life is behind him. Click 2 Houston reports that The Sauce Factory was investigated as a possible gang in 2018, at which time the rapper denied any wrongdoing. In December 2022, several of his affiliates working under the record label were arrested on gun, meth, and heroin charges. Mondane wasn’t implicated in any of those crimes.
