According to wikipedia.org, Cameron Ezike Giles, “better known by his stage name Cam’ron (formerly Killa Cam), is an American rapper, actor and entrepreneur from Harlem, New York. He is the de facto leader of East Coast hip hop groups The Diplomats (also known as Dipset), and U.N. (Us Now).” So now you know. What you also know . . .
is that Mr. Giles is an idiot. Whether or not a gun’s real, flashing a firearm in a vehicle whilst driving in public is an invitation to law enforcement-related disaster– regardless of your skin color or the orientation of your baseball cap. Putting your finger on the trigger is icing on the possibility of being iced. All of which makes Mr. Giles TTAG’s Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day.
Note: I understand that [most] rap songs are a legitimate form of protest music. When rap artists flash gats in videos…sure, why not? But rappers — like all gun-owning Americans — should take responsibility for safe gun handling in real life. Did I just write that? I suppose I did.
