Per a source in the story, the rapper was pressured by members of the Bloods organization to give inmates the message to go ahead with the attack. The rapper put on a concert for low-risk inmates, and two inmates were subsequently slashed in the face after he flashed gang signs, according to the Post.

The Brooklyn rapper demanded at the last minute that two of his friends, each incarcerated in different jails, be brought to see his concert in the George Motchan Detention Center’s gym.

Officials initially denied his request but gave in when Papoose threatened to cancel. High-ranking supervisors stepped in and permitted the transfer, according to the article.During the set, Papoose flashed Bloods signs, according to an official. Inmates associated with the Bloods erupted in cheers, according to another source.

Suspected Bloods members slashed two prisoners in the face with razors when the set ended.

Papoose‘s spokespeople have yet to comment on the incident or the article.
