A rapper getting arrested? Ain’t no thang. But a rapper that’s preening and posturing while in police custody? That’s rap run amok.
Last week, Compton MC The Game was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats after he allegedly pulled a gun during a pickup hoops game in South Central. So was he remorseful? Hardly. While being driven away by the cops Game smiled, stuck his tongue out and said, "I want to say that I’m not guilty … and I love California." (Watch here.)
Then, once in jail, the Game-play continued. He made gang signs, showed off a wad of cash, and was cheered by adoring fans. (Watch here.)
So why was Game so happy to have done got got? Did his street cred need the boost? Or is he just a bad mofo who’s above the law?
