          Drakeo got his start in Los Angeles

          Drakeo the Ruler came onto the LA rap scene in 2015 と “I am Mr. Moselyand released a series of mixtapes. He became known for his laid-back rapping style and distinctive slang, such as in his songFlu Flamming.”
          His budding career was repeatedly limited by legal troubles. He was arrested in 2017 on a weapons charge and in 2018 for murder related to the shooting of a 24-year-old man, and he was held at Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles County for several years.
          As the journalist Jeff Weiss has reported, prosecutors in the murder trial attempted to use Drakeo’s lyrics and music videos as evidence against him, arguing his rap group constituted a criminal gang. A jury acquitted him of the murder charge in 2019, but prosecutors refiled charges of criminal gang conspiracy, and he agreed to a plea deal so he could be released from jail last year, he said in an interview with Weiss published at The Ringer.
          I’m a prime example of what happens to 90 percent of Black people in the system,” Drakeo said in the interview. “I was acquitted of damn near every single charge, and I still had to plead to a gang enhancement to go home.
          Those legal troubles also played a central role in his music. 昨年, while still behind bars, he and his producer JoogSZN released the albumThank You for Using GTL” — a reference to Global Tel Link, the company that controls phone services for imprisoned peoplein which he rapped his verses on a crackly jail phone line. The music review site Pitchfork said the album でした “remarkable feat: a stark rebuke of the justice system and an unparalleled achievement for a rapper and his producer.
          Since leaving jail, he released several more mixtapes as well as his first studio album, “The Truth Hurts,” 2月中.

            I’m not with anything negative and as one of the many performers, I was there to spread positive vibes only to my city of L.A. Last night I was in my dressing room when I was informed about the incident and chose to immediately leave the festival grounds. My prayers go out to everyone affected by tragedy. Please take care, love one another and stay safe ya’ll. IM PRAYING FOR PEACE IN HIP HOP,” Snoop Dogg’s tweet read.
