Fight over rap lyrics at New York murder trial

Posted May 4th, 2014 @ 4:55pm

In a case of art influencing life, Ronald Herron, the ruthless leader of a violent drug gang is facing murder…What makes this case stand out is the fact that the evidence prosecution is introducing into this case is that of violent song lyrics performed by Herron; who in addition to being a gang leader is also a rap artist who goes by the name Ra Diggs.

According to court papers, the federal court and Herron’s defense attorneys are debating whether the recordings can be submitted as  evidence of real crimes committed or if they are constitutionally protected — and inadmissible — expressions of free speech?

In the video below for the song "Eulogy” Herron AKA Ra Diggs practically prophesied his eventual demise.
