AceShowbiz - Rapper Ace $wift could have caused more blood spilled in the wake of George Floyd's death. The aspiring hip-hop artist has been arrested after urging his fans to kill cops in retaliation for the killing of George, who died on May 25 after a white police officer knelt on his neck during arrest in Minneapolis.
"If you see a police, stop and shoot him, kill him. Throw a brick at his head or whatever's in your hand," he said in an Instagram video, which has since been removed. "If you see any police, kill them. F**k all the police, we gonna kill them how they killed George."
The Florida rapper, whose real name is Cale Groff, also called for the vandalism of a mall in the state. He told his followers to gather at a St. Petersburg mall to "throw a square-shaped brick through the windows" according to the affidavit.
Cale's other posts have also been deleted from his Instagram page, but police said the problematic post was uploaded shortly after the death of George.
Due to the said post, Cale was arrested on Tuesday, June 2. He was charged with making threatening communications or threats of mass shooting. The 20-year-old was released later Tuesday on a $20,000 bond.
According to the New York Post, Cale had tweeted on May 29, "We are not the same we cannot coexist."
Cale, who is not affiliated with a political party, has previously had a run-in with the law. In 2018, he was convicted of marijuana possession.
Cale has 25 tracks posted on his SoundCloud page. Some of the songs titled "Pimpin Ain't Easy", "Still Scamming" and "F**k It". He appears to have had history of promoting violence as cover art accompanying the tracks shows Cale brandishing pistols and other weapons.
