They did the crime, here comes the time.
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.
These rappers wanted to prove how much street cred they had, but they just ended up behind bars for their bad behavior. Some just can’t stay out of jail.
