They did the crime, here comes the time.
Rap music is often associated with people committing violent street crimes, but once rappers get some success behind them, the last thing they want to do is lose it all by going to jail. However, stuff happens, and they had to draw down to defend themselves. Or just because they got mad at someone. These 15 rappers got acquainted with the legal system when they decided to commit these bizarre crimes.
In 1999, up-and-coming rapper Shyne was at Club New York with P. Diddy and JLo when shots rang out. Three people were shot, and Shyne took the blame for being the gunman. After his decade in prison, he called out P. Diddy for his role that night.
Mystikal took his fame way too far in 2003 when he forced a woman to orally pleasure him at gunpoint. He spent six years in jail for the assault. He was in trouble for domestic assaults in 2012.
In the early 90s, rappers were often associated with either the Bloods or the Crips gang. In 1992, X-Raided, who was a Crip, decided to get at the Bloods by gunning down the mother of two local Bloods’ members. He continued to release music in prison.
