    The Most Incriminating Names in Rap
    Over the weekend, Cory Gunz was arrested in the Bronx for carrying a loaded firearm. The unregistered Taurus .9mm was in the Young Money rapper's knapsack, and, thanks to a mandatory minimum sentence for unregistered guns in the State of New York, the 24-year-old could be facing more than three years behind bars. Though the rhyme slinger has since posted a portion of his bail and been released, the sad irony of it all, of course, is that the MC with "Gunz" as his rap moniker is in trouble with the law for a firearm-related incident. With that being said <em>XXL</em> takes a look at six other rappers with potentially incriminating names, and the illicit activity they should be sure to avoid by any means necessary. Let's not make it to easy for 'em guys. —<em>XXL Staff</em>

    <b>Don't get caught</b>: With any firearms, bullets, silencers, bulletproof vests, etc. In fact it would be a pretty good idea to get any and everything that you own registered right now!

    <b>Don't Get Caught</b>: Committing credit card fraud or any other form of identity theft. God forgives, the judge doesn't.

    People who name themselves things like that are trying to hard to prove a point most of them just lames

    i see an interview with 50 cent years ago and he said when he was picking a name he saw other rappers taking names of famous gangsters etc and said if they saw them they wouldn’t even say whats up i wouldn’t do that so i took the name from a hood nigga who did his thing and passed

      Curtis caught flack for taking 50 Cents‘ name (that is not a typo)…’American Gangster’ archive…he went thru the proper channels unlike others, that’s more of the reason for the pass…

    I’d think they would have mentioned 2P aka 2 Pistols. Or Scarface since they have Pill.

  • WestSideChronic

    Slaughterhouse’s name doesnt really represent dog fighting, but more of pig slaughter.
