Rapper Charged w/ Double Homicide After Allegedly Rapping About It
A Virginia rapper named Antwain Steward – nicknamed Twain Gotti – was arrested in connection to a double homicide after allegedly rapping about it.
Steward is accused of gunning down Brian Dean, 20, and Christopher Horton, 16, on May 10, 2007.
It took a whopping six years, but police caught up with Steward over lyrics they say refer to the murders.
An affidavit for a Newport News Circuit Court issued search warrant provided the lines from the song:
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
Witnesses at the time said that Horton and Steward had gotten into a fight before the shooting took place. Authorities allege that Horton and his visiting friend Dean were gunned down on the front porch of Horton’s house as a result of gang retaliation.
Steward has maintained his innocence through his twitter account, which is still being updated despite his incarceration.
