U.S. District Judge Michael M. Baylson thanked DJ Vlad for help in convicting Philly Rap Star AR-AB -whose legal name is Abdul West- who was found guilty of running a drug ring and is also implicated in several murders. The Vlad interview, social media posts, and song lyrics where used as evidence to convinct AR-AB with Baylson saying he “was sensitive to the danger implicit in searching for literal truth in artistic expression”. But he ultimately concluded that West’s lyrics were relevant to his crimes. “Simply put,” he wrote, “individuals cannot immunize themselves from criminal liability by expressing their intent in a rap video.” Maybe, the joke that DJ Vlad works for the Feds is starting to have some truth!!
