New York Rap Crime Wave!


It’s an unusually bad day for New York rappers and police. First the jakes ran up in Jadakiss’s Yonkers apartment and walked out with 5 grams of heroin, 6.5 pounds of marijuana, and $40,000 cash. (Jada wasn’t there, and isn’t presently wanted by the police–his roommate (?!) seems to be taking the weight). Then some member of 50 Cent’s staff caught an assault charge after he beat up a woman who refused his polite request for oral sex in one of the many rooms of 50’s enormous Connecticut mansion. And now, finally, AllHipHop is reporting that Dipset’s Juelz Santana was arrested this morning on domestic battery charges in Teaneck, NJ after police received a 911 call from his terrified wife neighbor. Evidently none of these guys got Jay-Z’s memo yesterday.
