The FLY Discussion: Why Can’t Rappers Stay Out of JAIL?

Waka Flocka Flame is the latest Rapper to Not Pass Go and Go Straight to Jail. Waka turned himself over to authorities today on a slew of drug, gun, and gang-related charges stemming from a police raid of his home in December.

The Rapper’s Atlanta residence was raided on December 16 (in his absence), and he was booked on charges including possession of marijuana, a firearm by a convicted felon, hydrocodone, and a firearm during the commission of a felony; violation of probation for driving on a suspended license; and violating Georgia’s “Criminal Street Gang and Terror Prevention Act.” Ironically Waka’s Mentor Gucci Mane was actually in the residence when all of this went down. He was arrested and now faces the possibility of serving 17 Months for vilolating his fairly new probation. Smh.

I’m so confused by the nature of all of this. You would think that the mere fact that both Waka and Gucci, (as is also the case with Part-Time incarceratee T.I.) have experience in the penal system, that they would take all measures to avoid a return to the Big House. Is it just me? Also acknowledging the ongoing police presence in Hip Hop as is, does it at all make sense to have a home full of firearms? Rappers get pulled over everyday B. When do the lights go on upstairs?

And didn’t Gucci just get released from Jail? Why would you sit in a house full of incriminating material?

Common sense is not Common.

Is it Just me?

Your Thoughts?

-Stay Fly!
