So, Fitty got arrested by his bodyguards hip-hop police for ridin' dirty: unsafe lane change, expired permit, unregistered vehicle, and lack of insurance. I wonder why my bullshit-o-meter suddenly turned red.

Update: As expected, Curtis is no longer in police custody. According to these guys, he was let go after a friend showed up with proof that 50 truly owns the silver Lamborghini (pictured above) he was driving when he got arrested. Like they really needed any proof.

Somehow Related: I've been reading Derrick Parker's Notorious C.O.P.: The Inside Story of the Tupac, Biggie, and Jam Master Jay Investigations from the NYPD's First Hip-Hop Cop (Parker is the grandfather of Hip-Hop Police) and he advises law enforcement to "approach the hip-hop community with more sensitivity," while stressing the consequences of making a high-profile rapper do the "perp walk" in public. One being a heightened sense of hostility towards po-po, causing them to cooperate even less with the police than they already do.

I'll keep you updated with a book review when I'm done reading six months from now.
