PBS News Hour | Should Rap Lyrics Be Used As Evidence in Court?

Antwain Steward

“Based largely on a rap he wrote, and accounts of two witnesses given years after the shooting, rapper Antwain Steward was arrested and charged with double murder. Critics contend rap is a musical art form that should not be taken as evidence of criminal behavior. But some prosecutors say they don’t buy the argument that the work is all fiction.”

I find this story polemical to the overall hip hop culture, so I wanted to post this News Piece from PBS News Hour to get the URL supporter base thoughts on this story.
