Somebody is gonna take the fall for this in a big way. Glad this video is getting some media attention now. Where are all the free speech advocates rushing to defend them?


A city-funded legal aid organization knowingly participated in a music video where artists rapped that it was “time to start k!lling these coppers” and pointed guns at a man dressed as an NYPD officer, the city’s Department of Investigation has found.
The Bronx Defenders, a criminal defense firm that receives about $20 million every year in public funding, let rappers Uncle Murda and Maino shoot portions of their “Hands Up” music video in their offices near Yankee Stadium and then tried to cover up its involvement, according to a DOI report.

Rapper Maino is set to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at his rise in hip-hop with the upcoming documentary Unstoppable set to be released tomorrow (June 9).

Maino explained the film’s focus on the adversity he has faced and his struggles to overcome all obstacles.

“A lot of industry people didn’t believe in me when I first started pounding the streets,” he said via a statement. “Many said I wouldn’t make it off of mixtapes, now look…my album is dropping June 30th. Haters inspired me to write my last two hit records. Unstoppable is the story of my life and struggles to get to the position I’m in now. I had a rough life growing up and nothing ever happened the way it was supposed to happen to me, so I’m accustomed to being turned down.” (Statement)

Focusing on his humble beginnings up until his “Hi Hater” fame, the doc will reportedly be a no-holds barred look into the New York rapper’s back story.

Maino grew up in an environment where selling drugs was more of a way of life than a criminal offense. Nickel and dimes eventually turned into handling weight and Maino’s fun in the streets was cut short when he was convicted of a drug related kidnapping and sentenced to 10 years in prison. While in prison, Maino sought the rap game as his gateway out of the hood. By the time he was released in 2003, he had mastered the rap techniques so much, that he began to embark on a mission to become The next rising rapper from Brooklyn. (Press Release) Continue reading

Ernie reports “Maino recently came out to White House Night Club in Hampton Bays, NY (Long Island) on saturday 4/2 … He performed his hit songs but, when he got to performing “All the Above” he became overly emotional on stage and even began sobbing-almost. Very pure moment

Editor’s Note: If you can make out the audio, Maino says he just found out his right hand man recently got shot by NYPD and he might not walk again. I’m guessing the frustration from not being able to get no get get back is a very overwhelming emotion.
