Ca gov. Newsom signs bill limiting rap lyric evidence in criminal cases

Gov. Gavin Newsom is making Cali the first state to block prosecutors from freely using rap lyrics as evidence in criminal cases -- and the move has some high-profile supporters.

Newsom looked like he was hosting a hip hop award show Friday as he put his John Hancock on a*sembly Bill 2799. The signing went down in an online forum that included Too $hort, Meek Mill, k*ller Mike, Tyga, YG, E-40, Ty Dolla $ign. and some other industry heavyweights.

The new CA law prevents prosecutors from using rappers' lyrics in court as circumstantial evidence ... unless a judge first reviews and approves it. Before the Gov. signed, several of the rappers talked about why the bill was so important.

Cali homegrown MCs E-40 and Too $hort, in particular, stressed the need for artists to have the freedom to creatively express themselves ... and said they hoped the Golden State would start a trend.

A similar bill in New York faltered earlier this year in that state's legislature.

Veteran rapper and former convict X-Raided told TMZ Hip Hop he always believed Newsom’s progressive politics would make the difference in California.

The Strange Music artist spent 26 years in prison for his role in a 1992 murder, but said he believes he would have been acquitted if prosecutors had been barred from referencing his lyrics.

This has become a hot-button issue since Gunna, Young Thug and several other YSL rappers were indicted in a Georgia RICO case ... with prosecutors raising their lyrics to support some of the charges.

So would people convicted based on lyrics be able to appeal for a new trial?

Does this mean once a judge approves it makes it true and not circumstantial?


This will turn out worse than however what it was before.

It's unlikely ex post facto, but I'm sure the CA Supreme Court will weigh in

Instead of worrying about lyrics, how about a plan to address all the rappers getting murdered in your state.

I mean rapping about a crime you actually committed, and you say you real rap...hold that n*ggas responsible.


If it's just raps about k*lling or dealing in general, that's just entertainment, like a movie and should not be used

If you aren't a*sociating yourself with criminal elements, you wouldn't have e anything to worry about. Cube ain't really about the criminal sh*t so the he's never been hemmed up

If you hang around 9 then...

No disrespect to Cube

But he was a STUDIO GANGSTA and a damn good one

He bragged about having a crime record like Charles Manson

But we as rap fans knew it was just ENTERTAINMENT




now these MOFOS TODAY they ain't Acting a role

like King Von (rip) and Problem Child 5 and Baby Drill are real MENACES TO SOCIETY and should have thier lyrics used against them

The paperwork from Problem Child upcoming trial here in Atlanta has him charged with 5 counts of murder

And to think I was literally standing next to him 2 years ago at my cousin's baby shower terrifies me to this day

And isn’t this the gun that was used in that murder?





X-Raided now says he did not testify about what really happened the night of the Harris murder because he adhered to a code of silence. “I could have testified and gone home,” the rapper said. “But I kept it real.” He says he was present at the attack but did not pull the trigger.

From what I understand, it has never been confirmed that it was actually the murder weapon.

Never knew he admitted he was there on scene.

Record labels pick which music they are willing to invest in..and it's not determined by the people....men lie women lie so can numbers....they makeup the numbers so you can focus on certain artist based on numbers
