Exactly, but you can't tell Boxden that. As far as they're concerned, the cops are their mortal enemies.

man the ignorance on boxden...First of all he didnt brag about k!lling anyone!!!!!!!!! Where did you guys get this?? And second of all he didnt get 2 years for the song..THe title is misleading...He was on probation and house arrest and he was already in jail when they heard the song..He was going to do time anyway..They just ran the "threat" case alng with his old case...People are so stupid..And its ok for famous rappers like 50 cent to brag about k!lling people or "bodying" people and its acceptable...But when some no name person voices their frustration then all of a sudden its so taboo..Man you dudes are a.ss backwards...

u cant threaten law enforcement or basically anything in the government, its common scence has nothing to do with freedom of speech. as far as that dude though, i feel he was just making some stupid s**t noone made yet. i dont belierve most the s**t i hear rappers saying but thats because im old, the problem is most kids wanna be like that person, and dont know whats right from wrong, now he has 2 years 2 sit in the pen and think of a different career.
lol i agree with u. i really think thats what that dumbass gets for putting out some dumb a.ss shyt like that.

POLK COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- The friends of an aspiring rapper whose song landed him in prison are coming to his defense, and one of them says the whole situation is his fault.

Lakeland rap artist Antavio Johnson, also known as T.O., has been sentenced to prison after prosecutors said he crossed a legal line in his song "Kill Me A Cop." The song contains lyrics that make specific threats and mention officers by name:

"I gotta Glock for a cop
Choppers for Crime Stoppers
And one in the cartridge
For the Lakeland Police Department
...
If Officer [removed], he care at all
Get my timing wrong
Im'ma be puttin' one in his dome
Mr. officer
Mr. officer"

Johnson also raps about Deputy Matt Williams and his K-9 Diogi, who were k!lled in the line of duty in 2006.

I-poll: Do you agree with Johnson's sentence?
Sheriff Grady Judd said he finds the song appalling.

"When you tie that part of the rap song into our deputy that was shot and k!lled and shot in the head, that's disturbing," he said.

However, Johnson also has his supporters, including one who takes responsibility for the situation.

Daniel Barajas said he posted the song on his Web site for Hood Certified Entertainment, and that he did so without obtaining permission from Johnson or listening carefully to the lyrics.

"I listened to it," he said. "I liked the beat. I liked the chorus, but I didn't listen to it lyric by lyric."

Barajas said Johnson never meant for the public to hear the song, which was recorded a couple of years ago.


Johnson has recently been performing as a gospel rap artist. He also said that, since then, Johnson has tried to turn his life around. In November, Bay News 9 shot video of Johnson as he recorded a gospel rap song last November.

"He's got Christian songs where he is begging for forgiveness," he said. "He's got all kinds of music that is so positive."

Barajas said he feels like he should take the blame for putting the song on the Internet.

"I apologize to T.O. for having put it on without doing my job," he said. "I apologize to him, because regardless whatever comes out of this, he's losing time in his life for my mistake."

Johnson has also apologized for the song. His attorney said he could have beaten the charges from the song, but he accepted a plea deal to get a reduced sentence since he was already on probation for a drug conviction.

Judd said that no matter what the situation is, his office has to take threats like these seriously.

"My response is you can't un-ring the bell," he said. "He threatened specific law enforcement officers with death, and we take that very seriously."

please shut up with your crying. Its funny you and many others claiming "f**k the cops" however if something goes down, your little a.ss is the first one dialing them on the phone crying for the lord.

Not to mention, the industry is full of talk, no action dudes. Stop talking about what your want/going to do. They need to do something much more positive to uplift the hiphop community. Its no wonder rap music is looked at as the lowest form of musical substance because of garbage like this.
