They did the crime, here comes the time.
A 16-year-old teen just wanted to see his hero, rapper C-Murder, in concert, but C-Murder and his body guards decided to stomp the child into submission before C-Murder himself shot the boy in the chest and killed him. He was sentenced to life.
You don’t see as many female rappers getting into serious trouble, but Remy Ma got locked up when she got into an argument with Makeda Barnes-Joseph about money. Remy shot Makeda and rummaged through her purse to find her cash. She turned herself in that day, but it put a real damper on her career for a while.
In the early 90s, it seemed like Chi would go far in the rap world with his intelligent lyrics. But he faded away into obscurity until 2000 when he killed his girlfriend’s brother, then took off. He wasn’t found for a year, but his story appeared on America’s Most Wanted which finally brought him to justice.
He’s served his time and is now a human rights activist.
