I just did another search to see if this guy has a criminal record. And the only thing I could find was ONE member of three 6 mafia has a criminal record and it isn't Crunchy Black.

Oh and the description of their music isn't gangsta rap. It is horror rap. Kinda like ICP and Eminem.

Infact the biggest controversys I found on this group had to do with the "three 6" in their name and crunchy black leaving the group.

First off, what gang sign is that? People of all races utilize that same hand gesture as ROCK ON! Maybe he feels amazing and blessed above all because he survived; so ROCK ON DARNELL! Second, not all rapper are gang bangers or black, their are rappers of all ethnicities and some that happen to be highly educated. Third, has anyone stopped to think this is a rich famous guy walking around in Vegas, maybe someone attempted to rob him. It's sad that we as Americans can be so closed minded and ignorant.
