So, someone leaks a letter recalling a secret meeting that spawned Gangster rap.  Birthed by about 30 white men in a room in Los Angeles who were investing in Private Prisons to diversify their portfolios.  Neat trick.  Worked like a charm.

Is it true?  Probably.  Not suprising.  Unfortunately the source is anonomous, and there’s no direct references to corroborate.  However, the story is written very well, except for a few grammatical typos, which fit well with an educated non-native speaker, as they claim to be.  Also, the story checks out with History.

Here’s the juicy meat.

“The subject quickly changed as the speaker went on to tell us that the respective companies we represented had invested in a very profitable industry which could become even more rewarding with our active involvement. He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments. I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn’t know what a private prison was but I wasn’t the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons. It was also made clear to us that since these prisons are privately owned, as they become publicly traded, we’d be able to buy shares. Most of us were taken back by this. Again, a couple of people asked what this had to do with us. At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons. Immediately, silence came over the room. You could have heard a pin drop. I remember looking around to make sure I wasn’t dreaming and saw half of the people with dropped jaws. My daze was interrupted when someone shouted, “Is this a f****** joke?” At this point things became chaotic. Two of the men who were part of the “unfamiliar” group grabbed the man who shouted out and attempted to remove him from the house. A few of us, myself included, tried to intervene. One of them pulled out a gun and we all backed off. They separated us from the crowd and all four of us were escorted outside.”

Who is the speaker and who is the security team?  Prison industry men?  Bank men?  CIA?  The Greys?  Timetravellers?  Skull and Bones?  All of the above?  Probably a healthy mix of those forces netted together into something we’ve never heard of.

I think it’s also worth positing that Gangster Rap cannot take full credit for crime waves, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be one of many nudges in that direction if parties are incentivized to make that happen.

Here’s something related to help you huff the fumes…
