Why do so many rich black rappers still get arrested?
If you look at nearly all the well known black rappers and a lot of the black sports stars they are forever getting arrested for gun possession, assault, murder, manslaughter, shootings, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

Now these rappers have been successful and wealthy for years and they haven't lived in the ghetto for years and years yet they still get arrested all the time for something or another. Someone like Snoop Dogg for example is a millionaire and yet the guy is still hauled in for things like drugs, weapons etc etc, and a number of rappers are in jail now for murder and for guns, while others have served long sentences AFTER becoming successful.

You don't see the rock and metal stars getting arrested and jailed for serious crimes that often. They may get addicted to drugs or something, but the rappers are ALWAYS getting in trouble over and over.

Again, they haven't been in the ghetto for over 20 years some of these guys, why can't they stay out of trouble when they have a life of luxury?

Because white people don't sing about violent anti social behavior.

You sing about what you do and who you are- they are just rich animals.

Re: Why do so many rich black rappers still get arrested?
But some of these rappers are in their 40s and even 50s and yet they are STILL getting arrested for guns or some shooting,dog fighting and even weed. You'd have thought they'd have matured mentally by now surely?

Like a lot of the big rock stars were hell raisers or whatever but that was when they were in their late teens and 20s. Even old rappers and basketball players are still being jailed and arrested over and over.

If you have a millions and aren't in the ghetto anymore, what's the excuse for still getting involved in such nonsense?

Re: Why do so many rich black rappers still get arrested?
My understanding is that before they got famous, many of them were actual active gang members.

Chris Brown is a Blood
Drake and Lil Wayne is are connected heavily with Jazz Prince who is a very scary dude.

Dr dre, Suge Knight, Snoop Dogg etc are affiliated with the crips I think.


Just because they get famous doesn't mean they stop gang banging, once you are in, you are in for life unless you get blessed/blood out.

I may be wrong about this, just my thoughts.

Chris Brown and Drake? I thought they were from middle class suburban backgrounds?

But what about the east coast rappers that for years have been arrested and convicted on and off for one thing or another, people like DMX and Meek mill? And then you have someone like T.I who is forever getting charged with something. Even when they are released from jail about a year later something else comes up they've been arrested or jailed for.

TI got popped on a wepons charge, did his time got out and then him and Tiny ( his wife ) got pulled over and there was meth and mdma on them. He took the charge so his wife could watch the kids.

DMX was an active gang banger at one time, he falls into the guilt by association thing, where in those around him get him into trouble.

I'm not sure about G-Unit or Meek Mill though, but my guess is the rap game and gang culture in general run together hand in hand.

Seems to be a trait of blacks to be violent and thugs, especially the males.
The ghetto hags aren't much better either.

$$ doesn't make you a better human being. Give blacks money and you end up with rich, violent, thugs.

Cops are focused on black people.

And white cops resent black people being rich
and being able to afford nice things or being successful.



I'd have that noose ready': Three Florida cops sacked and one forced to resign after exchanging racist texts and creating an N-word-laced video featuring Obama
James Wells, Jason Holding and Christopher Sousa were fired on Friday
Colleague Alex Alvarez, 22, resigned in late January during investigation
Officers exchanged 'inexcusable' racist text messages, police chief said
Messages referred to 'killing n******'; one said, 'I'd have that noose ready'
Alvarez also created video featuring Obama sporting gold-capped teeth
Other clips included pictures of attacks on minorities and use of N-word
Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler said at a press conference that he was 'very disappointed, disgusted and shocked' by investigation's findings

Three Florida-based police officers have been fired and a fourth has been forced to resign after exchanging racist texts and creating an N-word-laced video featuring President Barack Obama.
James Wells, 30, Jason Holding, 31, and Christopher Sousa, 25, who patrolled a predominantly black neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, were sacked on Friday for 'department misconduct'.
Meanwhile, Alex Alvarez, 22, who apparently created the video, resigned from the city's force in late January, before the five-month investigation into he and his colleagues' exchanges was complete.
The job losses come at a critical moment in the United States as police officers across the nation continue to come under fire for the alleged use of excessive force against African Americans.

Racial profiling. It's a well known fact the cops ignore crimes committed by whites but only care about crimes committed by blacks.

If you are white you can rob a bank and have no fear of being arrested.
