  • You can run,but you can’t hide, eventually you WILL be caught!!!

    • You might be right, but he is probably happy to come to Humboldt and get a bail. Criminals love our ‘easy open’ revolving door.

  • great he’ll probably be out In a few years, charge his ass in s.c. Where they have real consequences.

  • Squeezed by the 5-0,
    Now in bed with the po-po,
    Rat, snitchin’ on your bros,
    Not going back to the ‘hood no mo.

    Why are they (being young black men arrested for various crimes) always “rappers” Is that the same thing as being an “entrepreneur” for young white men who are, in fact, unemployed? If he is, he can now use his talents to “sing” for a plea deal.

    • Because that is what he called himself in this case? At least this rapper has music videos as evidence. Maybe he should be called an unemployed rapper?

      I never saw ‘entrepreneur’ listed as a previous occupation for any unemployed person. Maybe failed entrepreneur?

  • oh he is gonna love Humboldt county jail not lol lmao

  • Another black here looking for a payday.that’s why I don’t do business with them,at the risk of sounding racist.

    • Oddly, it does sound racist when you say that everyone of one race is dangerous.

      • Black is racist. Your judging them by there color. Kinda like calling a white person white. They like to be called Africans americans. Just being PC

      • Lost Croat Outburst

        Ah, yes, Kym you’re still living in the Old pre-Trump America that your boys may never see again. You can rise to the Presidency of the United States on odd racist comments like the “Mexican” judge in the Trump University fraud case. Remember, there are plenty of wonderful people in the white nationalist camp. Many sides. Your KKK side, your neo-Confederate side, your birth-certificate-is-fake side, your “Jews-will-not-replace-us” side. You betcha.

      • He didn’t say everyone of a certain race is dangerous. He noted the obvious: that ANOTHER black on white robbery has happened in Humboldt, a county that probably has less than a 2% black population. He then states that he doesn’t do business with them; pretty obviously a euphemism for: I don’t sell weed to “them”. Considering the amount of black on white crime around here lately on weed dealers, coupled with the national average, his decision seems very practical. Being PC and throwing common sense out the window in the weed game is plain stupid and may even get you killed. I’ll stay alive and be labeled a racist thank you.
        I love dogs but I exercise caution around pits due to their, well deserved, reputation. To do otherwise would only make me foolhardy.
        Any wagers that some knight will ride in and contort what I’ve said into: you just called black people to pit bulls?

        • If you refuse to do business with any black person, then…yes, you are a racist. Discriminating against people because of their color is the definition of racist.

  • I never heard the outrage associated with this crime. Never heard the calls of justice for the victim. Never heard the community called institutionally racist. I must have missed the community victims and community leaders calling for meetings to discuss radical racism running rampant throughout Humboldt. I must not have been listening, or, perhaps, special interests did not exist in this case who were tried to force feed hate to us. I wonder why, I wonder what was different? Justice should come to all, it should be fought for by everyone for everyone.

  • Thanks for showing his videos that music is dope I want to buy an album. My daughter and her friends think its cool too they love sexy black dudes especially rappers who are tough

  • hopefully when he gets here to HCCF some of the locals can show him what we think of people coming in from outta state robbing growers & shooting people…

  • Oh Canada
