The Little Rock, Arkansas Police Department is still worried about hip-hop music, after a mass shooting in the city over the summer.
In July, a rapper by the name of Finese2Tymes aka Ricky Hampton, was involved in a shootout that left 27 people wounded at the Power Ultra Lounge.
His bodyguard and another man were eventually charged in the shooting but it has left the city’s local nightclubs and the police department on edge when it comes to rap music.
Local Police Chief Kenton Buckner has fired off a letter to local officials, expressing his concern over an upcoming meet and greet featuring Cash Money rapper Jacquees.
Chief Buckner cited past violence at Jacquees’ shows in other states, although he did not expressly call for the cancellation of the event.
But Chief Buckner’s words carry weight in the local community after the shooting.
Earlier this month, a concert featuring Moneybagg Yo was canceled, after Chief Buckner sent out a similar letter expressing concern over past violence at his shows.
Jacquees’ meet and greet and concert are planned to go on a scheduled today (October 29).
