In the rap world, lyrics about shooting and killing people is a commonplace for rappers to talk about. That doesn’t mean that half of them do it.
Antwain Steward aka Twain Gotti an up and coming rapper from Newport News, Virginia was recently arrested and charged with murder from a cold case in 2007. They believe his own rap lyrics lead to them solving the double homicide case.
According to the Daily Press, police believe that the song “Hip Full of Gun” made by Steward describes him killing someone. The song’s video which was posted in 2011 shows him playing a violent video game. Police used some of the lyrics for their affidavit:
“Everybody saw when I [expletive] choked him. But nobody saw when I [expletive] smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him … had me crackin up so I joked him, it is betweezy six feet ova, told ya [expletive] with my money I’ll roast ya.”
Steward was previously arrested in 2011 for a non fatal drive by shooting, local NBC reports say. He is currently in the Newport News City Jail and charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of unlawfully discharging a firearm and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony
People would do anything for fame. When rappers talk about killing people that doesn’t mean they really do it. Most rappers just put on fronts for their music because it sounds good but the youth takes everything these rappers do into consideration. Lets get it together guys! This stuff isn’t real!
