HipHop police popped up
looking like potential rappers
One black dude and his white homie...
They signed for the mic
had a slot to perform but started moving around the club mad sus...
I was rolling up my spliff in the bathroom and they knew I was a host so when we spoke the convo went from a few different things about the venue to asking if I had some pills or something to help pick em up to see if I was pushing...
Them n*ggas looked green as a meadow breeze ...
I can spot addicts ...
They weren't in that life
So even if I did?

fu*kin weirdos
Then asked about Tony Yayo ...Cuz he was expected to show that night and the line of questioning regarding him let me know they weren't really there to rap...
Their covers were blown although they figured it was all good cuz they did hit the stage anyway but nah them n*ggas were stinking like chitlins

Art isn’t evidence they still have to prove it in court. All social media can do is hurt your character/credibility when it comes to jurors.

In a judicial opinion filed last month, The State of Maryland’s highest court ruled that rap lyrics may be admitted in court as evidence of a defendant’s guilt. This blatantly racist decision is a travesty that sets a dangerous precedent.

The case involves the January 2017 k*lling of George Forrester, who was shot by a drug dealer after he attempted to buy cocaine with a counterfeit bill. Based on a single witness’s identification, Lawrence Montague was indicted for Forrester’s murder. Three weeks before trial, Montague used a jailhouse telephone to record a rap verse, which was then uploaded to Instagram. At Montague’s trial, the State of Maryland introduced the telephone recording of the lyrics as evidence of Montague’s guilt, and Montague was convicted and sentenced to a combined fifty years for second-degree murder and use of a firearm in a crime of violence.

Maryland’s highest court took the case on appeal and affirmed Montague’s conviction, finding that the danger of unfair prejudice posed by the admission of the lyrics does not substantially outweigh the lyrics’ probative value. In making this determination, the Court wildly understates the unfair prejudice posed by the use of this type of evidence. As the dissenting opinion by Judge Shirley Marie Watts notes, the decision here “does little more than portray a defendant to be a person with base violent tendencies who is capable of indiscriminate violent criminal acts.”

In this culturally problematic ruling, the Court fundamentally misunderstands the history, purpose, and importance of hip-hop music. In the 1970s, hip-hop emerged in the South Bronx as a response to the combined effects of poverty, unemployment, gang violence, and isolation from mainstream America. Early pioneers developed the genre, in part, to end gang violence — rap was an outlet that transformed the competitiveness and territoriality of gang life into something artistic and productive.

Ignorant of this perspective, the Court’s opinion hastily draws conclusions from Montague’s lyrics, making up connections between the lyrics and the crime that are simply not there. The Court uses this poorly substantiated analysis toward its finding that the lyrics had an “unmistakable factual connection” to the crime. It attempts to put all rap lyrics into the categories of historical fact and fiction, failing to understand that hip-hop, like most art, is more complex than that. Drawing on African-American storytelling traditions, rap often utilizes violent rhetoric as a form of intellectual competition and a vehicle for change, though such lyrics are not to be taken literally.

The chilling effects of this ruling on the creativity of all rap and hip-hop artists is gravely concerning. Great music is more often than not rooted in storytelling, and by imposing criminal consequences for a story told through an artistic medium, the court here threatens to stifle creativity and limit the scope of artistic expression.

Moreover, it’s impossible to ignore the discriminatory outcomes this type of ruling will create. The ruling is focused on rap, a genre invented by Black Americans and predominately authored by Black Americans; a genre that has historically served as a medium to bring awareness to systemic inequality, along with the violence it often produces (though it is worth noting that violence is not the only theme found in rap music; for example, Judge Watts’ dissent calls attention to the diversity of rap lyrics, citing the positive messages communicated by artists such as Chance the Rapper and Common. Artists like 2Pac have managed to demonstrate empathy and conscience while offering thoughtful examinations of street violence and police harassment). I would invite anyone suggesting that this ruling is not limited to rap music to find an example of a court admitting lyrical evidence of a country singer driving drunk or shooting a cheating spouse.

In a country where estimates suggest tens of thousands of incarcerated people were wrongfully convicted, this outrageous ruling will prevent artists from telling stories that need to be told, simply out of fear that those stories could wrongly implicate the artist in a real-life crime. Art should be a safe space, where we can bring attention to the best and worst parts of our society and the human experience, whether we are celebrating, educating, protesting, or anywhere in between. The art shouldn’t be valued any differently simply because it is crafted in a jailhouse rather than a recording studio. In a justice system already stacked against people of color, rulings like this one are a step backwards. The Maryland Court of Appeals should be ashamed.

That should be strictly a Chicago thing but this new generation made d*ckriding and following a sport…


They made it something of normal…
You going to have to call everyone a d*ckrider. Everyone d*ckrode hip hop from NY. Should hip hop be strickly a NY thing? Everyone d*ck rode drill from Chicago. Everyone d*ckrode Cali blood and crips. Rappers use to put guns in videos before keef. It got censored until the internet.

d*ckriding the popular thing and gangbanging on wax didnt start with keef. Many local rappers have been k*lled over local beef

Was just about to say isn't this how Shmurda got caught up?

Thing is, rappers been doing this. It's just easier for law enforcement to catch now because of the rise of social media.

There was a poster on BX who use to post on here that literally broke down the Troy Ave versus Tax shoot out before anyone was arrested. He broke down camera angles, video forensics, gun that was used and all sorts of other details before anyone got arrested. He did all the work a detective would struggle to do without technology and the internet.

With the way technology is setup today regular citizens are doing all the leg work for cops they just roam and lurk popular sites go off those leads and collect all the evidence they need before making arrests. These rappers/criminals have no clue how your cellphone or social media page is your demise if you running in the streets.
That fu*king weirdo hip-hop factz. He did all that sh*t because Taxstone made fun of tupac, he had a reasoning behind it. That sh*t actually brought traffic to the site & NYPD; if i'm not mistaken he had to delete some of those vids because of him sticking his nose in unwanted business. Do that internet detective work if you want too, they gone bring you down just for being a spectator.

n*ggas wanna be believed for their lyrics then wanna backtrack when that sh*t gets used against em...


You can rap about a grisly murder, murder spree all you fu*king want to until you say the names,what hoods they're from and the circumstances under which they expired ...

Then it sounds like a first hand account not just music

I mean some of y'all can't enjoy anything else besides that miserable sh*t but I honestly think it's time we set some standards...

If u talk to ur homeboy about a murder and it leaks online and the feds hear it…. Are you ratting on him? Where’s the reward???


Rat/snitchin…. Somethin I just don’t throw around for the sake of just saying it. Feds aren’t Sayin “yea his friend ratted on him”. If so, where’s the protection? What time has been cut? Who’s the informant? How long has he been a rat?

A lot of these cops are from the same areas that these rappers come from too.

Some live double lives and some play the hatin' game towards the ones really gettin' it, like you've alluded to earlier.

Shaq went plat and primarily was a pro-athlete.

I think he meant dudes that never got on with any mainstream label or with any underground buzz when he said failed rappers.
