Two rappers have been jailed for using an internet song to try to scare off witnesses to the murder of a 24-year-old man in Ealing, west London.

[The lyrics included:] “I can't wait for the snitch to drop, I still show up at his wake just to see him off”.

Old Bailey Judge Richard Hone said the lyrics meant: “Those who went chitter-chattering to police were themselves in danger of being shot.” [BBC]
I demand that from now on all rap lyrics be translated by members of the British judiciary.

Perfect. It has weirdly reminded me of my paternal grandfather's ability to turn any pop song - punk - abba - disco - you name it - into 20's ragtime, by singing it. He didn't mean to, but that was sort of where his internal popular music clock had stopped.
