One rapper’s threats aimed at Donald Trump didn’t play out too well.
It all began last week when Baton Rogue-based rapper Demarcus Davis stated in a YouTube video “I really want to go to war with Donald Trump because Donald Trump is tryin’ to take food stamps from my momma and that’s all the (expletive) she got.” He continued that he wants to declare war against Donald Trump – which I imagine would be hard to fund when you apparently can’t even afford food.
And then, as Breitbart reports, he took things another step further, and that’s when he ran into trouble. In another video reportedly posted to social media on May 15, Davis — who goes by the rap name Maine Musik — and at least seven other people can be seen brandishing a number of weapons, including rifles, pistols and a sawed-off shotgun, according to Baton Rouge ABC affiliate WBRZ.
When authorities examined the video, they noticed similarities between the weapons being waved around and weapons that had been stolen from a local Meaux Guns and Ammo store last July. A Baton Rouge police spokesman told the outlet that a stolen Ruger being brandished in the video was particularly easy to identify because it had been customized before it was stolen.
Davis was arrested on June 3 and charged with three counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of illegal possession of a firearm, according to WBRZ. Police reportedly tracked down Davis by referring to a house number and street number that were clearly visible in the YouTube clip.
Former Sons of Guns reality TV star Joe Meaux, who owns Meaux Guns and Ammo, said he realized the firearms being waved around by Davis were his after spotted a video entitled “Rapper Threatens Trump” online.
He posted $23,000 bail and is currently awaiting trial. Today he posted a link to the Breitbart article about him on his Instagram with the caption “They Just won’t STOP F— FOX NEWS GOD GOT ME IT IS WHAT IT IS SEE U B—– IN COURT HIT THE LINK IN MY BIO.”
He also has a number of posts accusing various people of reporting on his crimes as racist. Will we be next? Guess it’s time to sit back, wait and see!
