Inspired by recent Smoking Gun Dot Com exposes on Akon and Rick Ross, rap website HipHopDX has decided to do a bit of journalism, and has looked into the criminal past of "goon" rapper Plies, who has claimed on record he's been to jail and suchlike.
Turns out dude hasn't actually been to jail, and, in fact, didn't get arrested until he was 29! Whoo!
HipHopDX has obtained documentation from the state of Florida that lists the “definition of real” rapper’s first real run-in with the law to have not taken place until two years ago, on April 12, 2006, when Plies - real name Algernod Lanier Washington, born May 22, 1976 - would have been on the eve of his 30th birthday and just beginning his ascension to his current status of gold-certified rap star.
Can't see too many people giving a fuck about this one, however. Check the story out here.
