On April 10, 2002, 25-year-old Singleton murdered Tynisha Ysais in her Los Angeles, California, apartment. Her boyfriend Thomas Moore testified that he and Singleton spent the evening prior to the murder smoking PCP.
The victim was found in her apartment by her friend Alisa Allen. Her chest had been torn open and a three-inch blade was found broken off in her shoulder blade. Tooth marks were found on her face and on her lungs, which had been torn from her chest. Eyewitness Justin Klemer, a Texas native, reported that when Singleton was picked up by police, he was naked, covered in blood, standing in the middle of the street and screaming at the sky. A medical examination performed shortly after his capture found human flesh in his stomach that was not his own.

On November 7, 2003, Singleton was sentenced to life in prison. He had been convicted of murder and aggravated mayhem the previous June after pleading not guilty by reason of insanity at the time of the murder. The court ruled that his intoxication and claimed insanity were not satisfactory reasons for committing the crime, after a court appointed psychiatrist, Dr.Dean Frias, had evaluated Singleton and reported had no medical belief to be insane, or of unsound mind.

In 2004, Stress Free Ent. and Black Market Records released a solo LP on behalf of Singleton, It's All Bad. Features included Killa Tay, C-Bo, Lil Keke, Roger Troutman II and Too $hort.
Ysais' mother, Carolyn Stinson, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Black Market Records, Singleton's record label. The label, in similar fashion, has put out albums for X-Raided while he was awaiting trial and eventually convicted of murder (Xorcist, Unforgiven, Vol. 1, etc.). The suit charged that the label had provided Singleton with drugs "to encourage [him] to act out in an extreme violent manner so as to make him more marketable as a 'gangsta rap' artist." "Part of what makes a Gangsta Rap artist marketable is the fact that the artist is a current ongoing participant in violent gang activities," the lawsuit said.
He is currently serving his life sentence at California State Prison, Los Angeles County in Lancaster, California. He has spent the last 4 of 5 years in solitary confinement. He was recently transferred to California State Prison, Sacramento (SAC).
Big Lurch was recently featured in the film Rhyme and Punishment a 2011 documentary that chronicles hip-hop artists who have been incarcerated. In the film Lurch talks about his conviction and time in prison.

Steve Thomas case
Corey Miller

In September 2003, Miller was convicted for the 2002 beating and fatal shooting of a fan, 16-year-old Steve Thomas, at a Harvey, Louisiana nightclub; however, Presiding Judge Martha Sassone granted a new trial based on the claim that prosecutors improperly withheld criminal background information on three of their witnesses.
While awaiting re-trial Miller was placed under house arrest. Sassone allowed Miller to promote his new yet to be titled CD and novel, Death Around the Corner, while under house arrest, but ruled that a gag order pertaining to the case would remain in effect. The terms of the house arrest required Sassone's permission for all visitors, including reporters.
On March 13, 2007, Judge Sassone granted Miller's request to work on his music career on a per request basis, but denied his request for a 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. curfew. Sassone's rulings in the case became an issue in her failed 2008 bid for re-election. Sassone was defeated by Judge Ellen Kovach; prosecutors subsequently renewed a request to have Miller returned to jail. During January 2009, Corey Miller was confined to his residence on house arrest, and could only leave for a documented medical emergency.
On May 27, 2009, Miller pled no contest to two counts of attempted second degree murder. These charges stem from a 2001 incident in Baton Rouge in which Miller fired shots from a semi-automatic pistol at the owner and bouncer of a night club who refused to allow Miller to enter the business with the gun. C-Murder was sentenced to ten years with credit for time served. An alleged surveillance video of the incident was posted on AllHipHop.com.
On August 5, 2009, the murder trial began. The father of the victim spoke of his son being a huge fan of C-Murder before the incident. A bouncer had also testified against C-Murder claiming to have witnessed every moment of the shooting, he says he fears for repercussions of testifying and prosecutors have also made claims of C-Murder's associates threatening many other witnesses from this case. On August 10, 2009, the jury reported being deadlocked, but Judge Hans Liljeberg instructed them to attempt to resolve the deadlock. Three hours later, the jury returned to announce it had reached a 10-2 guilty verdict. The judge suspected that, given the deadlock announced earlier followed by the quick reversal, one of the jurors decided to switch under pressure to end the trial and instructed the jury to go back and deliberate on the case longer. When they came back, with the same verdict, Miller was convicted of second-degree murder charges with a 10-2 verdict. During sentencing the victim's father was quoted as saying "I'm not rejoicing. I feel bad for [Miller's] family. But at least they can see him. What have we got but a gravesite and a photograph?" C-Murder was sentenced on August 14 by District Judge Hans Liljeberg to mandatory life imprisonment.
On August 27, 2009, Ernest Johnson, president of the Louisiana NAACP, requested an investigation into the jury deliberations. C-Murder's financial woes have reportedly landed him the help of two Harvard attorneys who have agreed to assist with his appeal. One of the jurors, Mary Jacob, said that both she and a fellow juror, a 20 year old Xavier student, were verbally abused by fellow jurors for their decision to acquit. According to Jacobs, the abuse resulted in her switching her verdict, saying "They literally made this 20-year-old girl so violently ill, she was shaking so bad. She ran into the bathroom. She was throwing her guts up. She couldn't function anymore. That's when I decided, the judge don't want to listen to me, doesn't want to listen to us? I told them, 'You want him to be guilty? He's guilty; now let's get the hell out of here.'" This account was partially confirmed by another juror. In Louisiana, a 10-2 consensus is sufficient for conviction but a 9-3 consensus results in a mistrial. As a result, Miller is currently seeking to overturn the verdict.

San Francisco rapper Mac Minister (born Andre Dow), 37, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder on Monday, in connection with the May 2005 slayings of 24-year-old Anthony "Fat Tone" Watkins and his 22-year-old friend, Jermaine "Cowboy" Akins. Authorities said the murders were the final shots fired in a bloody Midwest/ West Coast rap war.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the District Court jury in Las Vegas found Dow guilty and recommended two life sentences without a chance of parole. He will be formally sentenced on September 24.

Dow, who has worked with Too Short and Snoop Dogg, first made headlines in 2000, when he got into a brawl with fellow Bay Area rapper E-40 at the Source Awards. Though he is somewhat of an underground figure in the larger rap world, his trial drew attention because his witness list included Snoop, who could have been called to testify in Dow's defense. Prosecutors claimed that Dow lured Watkins and Akins to their deaths with the promise of meeting Snoop to discuss a potential concert-promotion gig. But after the trial, one of Dow's attorneys said that upon reviewing the evidence, they didn't feel the need to question Snoop in court.

During the trial, prosecutors said that Dow and an accomplice, 29-year-old Jason Mathis, killed Akins and Watkins as part of a rap war between California rappers and Midwest MCs. Mathis' trial is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas this week. Dow is also accused of killing a potential witness in the case, 21-year-old prostitute Lee Danae Laursen, who had been living with Dow and Mathis. Her car was seen leaving the spot where Watkins and Akins were killed, and two days after their indictment for the murders, she was found shot in the head.

Prosecutors painted the murders of Akins and Watkins as retaliation for the November 2004 killing in Kansas City, Missouri, of Mac Dre (né Andre Hicks), an MC from Vallejo, California. (Read about Mac Dre's influence in the San Francisco hip-hop scene in the MTV News feature My Block: The Bay.) According to the Review-Journal, despite being cleared by police in Mac Dre's death, Watkins was still rumored to be linked to the murder, which was reportedly instigated by a dispute over payment for a concert.

Police said that Watkins and Akins were seen leaving their hotel with Dow hours before they were murdered at a construction site outside of Las Vegas. Dow's attorney said his client and Watkins were friends who had traveled together to pursue their music careers and were not rivals, but close associates. But when the verdict was read, the Review-Journal reported that Akins' mother broke down and cried, saying she was shedding "tears of joy."

Dow's reaction to the verdict after the weeklong trial was described as being more stoic. Once the jurors handed down the sentence, he told them, "God bless you all."

In July 2005, police pulled Dow over near the Golden Gate Bridge and he fled the scene. In his abandoned car, police reportedly found a documentary Dow had produced about his life and an article about the murders of Akins and Watkins. He was arrested a month later by the California Highway Patrol, and subsequently released. In November 2005, he was indicted on two counts of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, but remained at large.

While on the run, a source told MTV News, Dow recorded the intro to the Game's Doctor's Advocate. Shortly after being featured on Fox's "America's Most Wanted," the rapper was finally apprehended by police in a San Francisco apartment in March 2006.

Born July 30, 1974, Brown was brought up by his mother, Shirley James 'Jaz' Brown, a clerk at the Sacramento County Courthouse.
The first X-Raided album, Psycho Active, was recorded in June 1990 with Sacramento rapper Brotha Lynch Hung, and released in 1992. Brown claims that the recording was made during a deadly conflict between the 24th Street & Garden Blocc Crips and the Meadowview Bloods, contributing to lyrics full of violence. In March 1992 gang members raided the home of Patricia Harris and she was fatally shot. Brown and four other gang members were arrested for the murder. The cover of Psycho Active shows Brown’s face with a .38-caliber handgun pressed to his head, and it was speculated that this was the actual murder weapon. The lyrics on the album contained mirror images of the crime he was suspected to have committed, and this caused national media coverage of X-Raided's then-impending trial. Brown did not testify about the night of the Harris murder, adhering to a code of silence, claiming he was present at the attack but did not pull the trigger.
From 1993 to 1995 X-Raided recorded a large amount of material entirely over the telephone while in jail awaiting trial. These recordings were released on the 1995 album Xorcist. The exact means used to get the recordings is unknown, but the quality of X-Raided's material on the album is substantially less than studio quality, especially when intermixed with collaborations with other artists where the sound quality is normal. A track on the album begins with a recording of a collect call from X-Raided which identifies him as "an inmate in Sacramento County Jail".
This second album garnered even more attention and it was covered in various mainstream media outlets including Playboy (September 1996). Months after the release of "Xorcist", X-Raided was convicted of first degree murder and gang related homicide as he was sentenced to 31 years in prison.
X-Raided's next album Unforgiven came in 1999, and was also recorded surreptitiously while in prison. A guard helped X-Raided access the equipment necessary to record his vocals, and even his cell mate, Dott Dogg, made an appearance on the album.
Vibe (August 1998) reported, "The Unforgiven is culled from 65 tracks recorded onto a DAT, with beats added afterwards at a studio". Post-production was done at a house by producer DJ VerbalTek. He sent the music equipment necessary for recording; a microphone used to clip on in interviews, a tape recorder and a electronic metronome. All the beats were made by DJ VerbalTek including the single Mortal Kombat. According to Jerry Smith, Community Resources Manager at Salinas State Prison, "it's a mystery how such vocal sessions could take place. Inmates are not allowed to have tape recorders."
Despite adverse circumstances, X-Raided managed to obtain clear and legitimate vocals. The result is "The Unforgiven: Volume I". X-Raided says, "with 2Pac gone, there is no one stepping up to represent the West Coast that has the lyrical skills, plus the intrigue to withstand the scrutiny that comes with being the best in his region. Now that I have real vocals, I am claiming the throne that was vacated by the death of Makaveli. Cali is mine and I am demanding my place at the top of the list of West Coast MC's." When asked about his case, X-Raided stated, "I was railroaded, straight up. But there is nothing I can do now except to make as much noise as I can, and hip hop is my medium, my podium. I gotta make some Johnny Cochran money so I can get up out of hell." "The Unforgiven: Volume I" showcases the production of newcomers DJ Shareil, The Technician, and R.A.W., collectively known as Mad Man Records. The album also features two new lyrical talents, Dott Dogg and Hanifah. Stand out tracks include "Misanthropy", "Spittin' Venom", and the autobiographical title track.
The Initiation was released in early 2001, and was the culmination of X-Raided's attempts at forming his own record label back in 1999, Mad Man, with the help of his mother, Shirley “Jaz” Brown. Since the release of that album, X-Raided has since created another label called Bloc Star in 2005. He was the first artist to leave Madman Records in 2005. It is now run by Shirley “Jaz” Brown and Big No Love. Before the murder, Jaz Brown was a clerk at the Sacramento County Courthouse, but she quit when X-Raided became a famous defendant in the corridors. By June 2000, Jaz Brown had a new title, CEO of Madman Records, the new label for X-Raided and other local Sacramento rappers. She ran the business from a tidy Sacramento apartment, but its true command center was her son’s cell. Some said X-Raided is still part of Black Market Records.

Sacramento rapper X-Raided was stabbed during a prison riot at Pleasant Valley State Prison, sources told AllHipHop.com.

A group of inmates affiliated with the gang The Northern Riders were responsible for the attack on the rapper, because he refused to produce their album.

The result was a full-blown riot when three African-American inmates attempted to assist X-Raided, who fought his three assailants.

"These guys are essentially a Protective Custody gang. They're a group of guys who were kicked off of the mainline by the Norte who came together on a sensitive needs yard and made up a new PC gang," a source close to X-Raided told AllHipHop.com. "It's ridiculous. They ran away from the mainline only to get to an SNY facility and form a new so-called gang."

Information on the inmates were scant, although the inmates responsible for the attack were identified as convicts: R. Werth, Gonzales, and Lawson.

X-Raided, born Aneraé Brown , was attacked by Werth who used a state toothbrush with eight razor blades taped and tied to it.

Gonzales used a knife made from a piece of metal removed from the prison's baseball facilities equipment.

The attackers stabbed X-Raided seven times, before a dozen officers were called in to regain control.

X-Raided fought off all three attackers and then stood up and crip walked, according to sources.

The rapper was then airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, California.

The attack on X-Raided's was an extortion attempt, a source stated.

"They wanted him to produce and release their rap album," a source said. "We're talking about inmates serving Life without the possibility of parole (Werth and Gonzales) wanting to be rap stars, and feeling so rejected to the point of wanting to kill him in an attempt to gain some fame. It's absurd. Our client shouldn't be facing threats of death on any Special Needs Yard, especially from a bunch of cowards who ran away from the mainline to escape from the Norte, only to clique up on any SNY facility. If they wanted to be tough guys they should have stayed on the mainline."

All three inmates have been charges with attempted murder.

X-Raided is currently serving 31 years in prison for taking part in a deadly gang related shooting in 1992 that left one woman dead.

He's in the SNY facility because of his notoriety.

He has managed to release at least 13 albums since his incarceration.

X-Raided is fine and has recovered from the attack.

On June 17, 2010 Lil Boosie was indicted on federal charges on first-degree murder of Terry Boyd. He also faces charges for three counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics (Schedule II-Codeine, Schedule I-Ecstasy and Schedule I-Marijuana), three counts of "conspiracy to commit possession with intent to distribute narcotics", and two counts of "conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution". He has stated that he is innocent of these charges. District attorney Hillar Moore stated that the killing seemed to be "over turf". If convicted, Lil Boosie may face the death penalty. Prosecutors have stated that they believe the rapper may have been involved in at least five other murders. On June 28, Lil Boosie entered a not-guilty plea in a Louisiana court room. While Boosie's defense addressed the fact that the rapper has several ongoing cases, they emphasized that he is not a murderer.

Tray Deee of Tha Eastsidaz was sentenced to 12 years in a California state prison on Wednesday for his role in a 2003 shooting.

Appearing in Long Beach Superior Court, the rapper, born Tracy Lamar Davis, pleaded no contest to shooting at an occupied vehicle and remains in county jail awaiting transfer to an as-yet-undetermined prison, according to prosecutor Cynthia Barnes.

In a plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to drop two charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one firearm-possession charge in exchange for Davis admitting to personal use of a firearm and assistance to a criminal street gang. According to Barnes, the latter charge came in light of evidence that Davis threw a gang sign at two unidentified men seated in a car before opening fire. Neither man was injured in the shooting.

Davis, who formed Tha Eastsidaz with Goldie Loc and Snoop Dogg in 1999, had been in county jail for more than a year awaiting trial. Prior to the incident, Davis and Goldie Loc had accused Snoop of failing to pay them back royalties for their two albums.

Tha Eastsidaz are still signed to TVT and have a handful of songs recorded for their third album, but it is not yet scheduled for release, according to a label spokesperson. It's unknown how Davis' incarceration will affect the completion of the album.

psd is gone for awhile damnn!

PSD first appeared on Mac Dre's 1996 compilation entitled The Rompilation, appearing on the track "Menage A Trois" and producing the tracks, "Uninvited" and "Gumbo". PSD is being held in jail while charges are pending for a drug case. Bay Area rapper PSD is reportedly facing drug distribution charges for trying to board a flight at Sacramento International Airport with 6,000 ecstasy pills. According to The Associated Press, PSD was arrested on Monday (July 14, 2008) during a screening check at the airport. The 34-year-old rapper tried to hide the pills in his clothes. Transportation Security Administration agents were patting Davison down when they felt a large bulge inside his right pants leg, authorities said. The rapper told the screeners at first that the object was a colostomy bag. Davison "PSD" then tried to leave, but a TSA supervisor told him he could be examined privately. Davison again tried to leave and said he had to go to the restroom, authorities said. The rap artist was escorted to the private screening area, where a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy found $5,600 in $100 bills in his front left pocket, Special Agent Brian Nehring wrote in an affidavit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Sacramento. The deputy concluded that the bag in Davison’s pants leg contained pills, which the rapper said were vitamins, Nehring wrote. As the search continued, Davison “became increasingly nervous and sweated profusely” and said the bag contained ice, the agent wrote. Because of his behavior, the deputy handcuffed him. Davison reached into his pants while handcuffed and produced a bag that contained 1,000 ecstasy pills, authorities said. A TSA screener later found 5,000 more ecstasy pills in the room, where Davison had briefly been left unattended before the search, authorities said. PSD was close friends with Mac Dre; they formed a rap group called the Cutthoat Committee which also includes rapper Dubee. The group went on to record two albums Turf Buccaneers and Money Iz Motive. Unfortunately the group has been disabled due to the death of Mac Dre, the prison incarceration of Dubee, and the drug charges against PSD for getting caught with 6,000 ecstasy tablets (thizz) in his pants. PSD has worked with many other artists throughout the Bay Area. He has said in interviews that rapper San Quinn is like family to him. He also is linked to other rappers such as Rydah J. Klyde, Richie Rich, Yukmouth, J.Stalin, J-Diggs, E40, Bavgate, and others.

I guess some of the rappers in jail really deserve to be there. But why would anyone listen to their music unless that’s where they want to go too? Rap is just beyond me.

I don't listen to any of those guys listed but, somebody can listen to rap and not want to go to jail and never end up in jail. Rap music comes in different styles and flavors, but it's music and music is expression and art. You express emotions, anger, jealousy, sadness , joy , love etc through it. In music, as in other art forms such as movies and plays, the artist paints a picture or tells a story . If I happen to understand that picture, and enjoy it, it doesn't necessarily follow that I want to be IN the picture.

So I'd say you're correct, rap is beyond you. You don't "get it".
