Key and Peele use a rapper’s lyrics against him in murder investigation (VIDEO)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Comedy Central’s Key and Peele parody the real world issue of rap lyrics being used against an artist under suspicion of a real world crime.

Don’t laugh, this actually happens.

In 2012, rapper Lil Boosie saw his lyrics to a song entitled “187,” recorded just two hours before a fatal shooting involving the artist, used against him in court during a murder trial.

Incidents such as these have even led to a case where a sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice even quoted Eminem in court.

On the flip-side, last year the New Jersey Supreme Court held that rap lyrics couldn’t be used as evidence unless they include a “strong nexus” to the crime under investigation.  This came in the trial of would-be rapper Vonte Skinner who wrote violent lyrics years in advance of a 2008 attempted murder charge.

Watch the video and see when Gun Rack crosses that “strong nexus” line in the murder of Darnell Simmons.
