'Trap House Money' Rap Video Leads To Drug Ring Bust
Rap group keeps it real in video, now keeping it realer in jail
We couldn't make this up if we tried.
Twelve members of a Milwaukee rap collective are now sitting behind bars after one of their rap videos pretty much proved the police's drug case against them.
After years of investigation, authorities rounded up the individuals and confiscated all of their paraphernalia. While that evidence is pretty solid, they were blessed with even more when two other members of the group posted a video for their song "Trap House Money."
In the video ringleaders Eastside L Boog and Eazy (real names: Larry Hooker and Earl Willams) are seen enjoying the spoils of a successful dopeboy: jewelry, cars, stacks of cash and shopping sprees at the sneaker store.
They are also seen giving a tutorial on how to cook crack cocaine and warning listeners about various "snitches on the block" and admitting to keeping weapons handy just in case they have to "let off a couple shots" if the "cops run up in the spot." They also mentioned just how many packs they move a day
While Hooker and Williams are still on the run, when they do get caught, just know that they pretty much wrote out the prosecution's case for them. At least we know they were authentic.
