San Diego rapper Tiny Doo is still fighting for his life. This week, Doo pleaded not guilty to conspiracy charges stemming from several 2013 and 2014 shootings.
The specific benefits, prosecutors say, were derived from Duncan’s 2012 mixtape No Safety, which they believe to have references to the Lincoln Park Bloods.
Duncan’s defense attorney, Brian Watkins, isn’t so sure. ““They’re charging Brandon Duncan with crimes that the District Attorney admits that he had no involvement in or even knowledge of,” Watkins said Thursday. “That is the definition of injustice.” [XXL]
The topic of rap lyrics and legal ramifications has been in the news lately, evident by The Supreme Court recently looking into the issue.
Lyrics brought into court proceedings for rappers has its history. Tupac’s came into play several times throughout the course of his life and Lil Boosie’s were a key element in the prosecution’s case against him. For Doo, it’s his alleged ties to San Diego’s Lincoln Park Bloods.
If convicted, Doo – who has no criminal record and has been in custody since June – faces life in prison.
