Several other rappers have been detained for suspected crimes in recent months, which is concerning. Silento, Top5, SpottemGottem, Wisdom Awute, and others are among the names on the list, which is far too extensive.

Details on the shooting
Oscar Hernandez was waiting for a haircut in a barbershop on Amsterdam Ave. at W. 151st St. soon before 10 a.m.
According to law enforcement sources at the time, Perez went by, opened the shop door, and asked Hernandez what he was looking at.
Hernandez then went outside to confront him. Perez began to walk away as the two argued.
But then, the teen pulled out a gun and shot Hernandez in the neck and back.
Hernandez's family informed the New York Daily News that they believe his death was the result of mistaken identity and that he had no idea who killed him.
The shooting was thought to be gang-related, according to police. Hernandez was a member of the Bronx-based Thirdside Gang, according to cop sources.
