Congressman Trey Radel, Self-Proclaimed Hip-Hop “Expert,” Busted For Cocaine

Esq-051713-Radel

Florida Congressman Trey Radel has said that he’s a lover of hip-hop. Evidently his favorite kind is trap music.

Radel was charged yesterday after trying to purchase cocaine from an undercover officer. He is slated to appear in court today and has released an apology letter, in which he blames the incident on his alcoholism. According to released documents, both the FBI and the DEA were involved in the charge.

Radel, a republican, gave an interview earlier this year where he called himself an “old-school hip-hop expert.” He went on to talk about Public Enemy (he said the group’s song “Fight The Power” aligns with certain conservative messages) and how Tupac was “poetic,” while Biggie was for “the party.”
