These rappers have been accused of a heinous crime.
Sexual assault is one of the most heinous crimes a person can commit. And the victims of this awful crime cut across all boundaries of race, class and gender. So, while we still find it surprising when a rapper is charged with sexual assault — it seems wild that people we’ve invested so much faith in could be so low — it unfortunately shouldn’t.
The list of rappers who have been accused of sexual assault isn’t necessarily long, but that doesn’t make it any less upsetting. Some of these accusations were just that, others turned out to reveal something much darker.
Keep reading to find out which famous rappers have been accused.
Too Short was accused of sexual assault by up-and-coming rapper Ana Lou last year. She claimed that the rapper assaulted her during a session in his studio.
Too Short vehemently denied the accusations. “The allegations against me are completely false,” he said in a press release. “Let me be clear, I have NEVER had nonconsensual sex with anyone, ever. I have directed my lawyers to vigorously combat these ridiculous claims.
“I have not been contacted by the LAPD about this matter and doubt I ever will be. If I am, I will direct my lawyers to fully cooperate and turn over 100’s of text messages and other evidence that will prove this woman is falsely accusing me.”
Police seem to agree with his version of events. No charges have been filed.
Freddie Gibbs was caught in a legal battle for a year after a young woman accused him of rape following a concert in Vienna.
