Rapper’s Lyrics about Murder get him Arrested

Rapper Antwain Steward — known commercially as Twain Gotti — was arrested and charged earlier this month with a pair of 2007 murders in Newport News, VA. The case had grown cold but when investigators discovered lyrics in a Twain Gotti rap song called “Ride Out” referring to a murder, the case grew legs.  According to Virginia newspaper the Daily Press, a police affidavit refers to these Twain Gotti lyrics:

“Everybody saw when I [expletive] choked him. But nobody saw when I [expletive] smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him…had me crackin up so I joked him, it is betweezy six feet ova, told ya [expletive] with my money I’ll roast ya.”

You can watch the rap video here and see if you can actually make out the lyrics that caught investigator’s attention.

Steward is charged with the murders of Brian Dean, 20, and Christopher Horton, 16. Witnesses claim Steward and Horton were arguing prior to the shootings.
