C Blu got himself in some serious trouble after he was accused of shooting a cop earlier this month. The rising rapper was taken into custody soon after the incident. Now, It appears the rapper is back on the streets.
According to The Source, 16-year old Camrin Williams aka C Blu was released from Crossroads Juvenile Detention Center in Brooklyn on Thursday. C Blu posted 10 percent of a $200K bond which reportedly came from a record label advance from a deal he recently signed with a subsidiary of Interscope Records.
William’s family was able to scrape together the $15,000 bail set by the court and used rapper’s earnings from the record deal to secure the bond. Williams was accused of shooting a 27-year old NYC cop Kaseem Pennant in the leg after a struggle broke out between them over a stolen gun. Williams was also struck in the groin by the bullet that grazed the officer.
Judge Denis Boyle granted Williams bail, despite the prosecutors’ push to keep the teen rapper held in jail without bail until his trial. NYPD Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch condemned Judge Boyle’s decision to grant C Blu bail.
“If anybody wants to know why we have a crisis of violence in this city, or why we’re about to bury two hero police officers, look no further than this disgraceful bail release. This individual chose to carry illegal guns twice. He chose to fight with and shoot a New York City police officer. There’s no reason to believe he won’t do the exact same thing when he’s out on the street tonight. Shame on Judge Denis Boyle for allowing this to happen. The people of the Bronx won’t be safe as long as he’s on the bench.”
The charges against him include felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. The budding star could also face an attempted murder charge from the grand jury. C Blu a member of the reputed Crip gang was on probation at the time of the shooting from a 2020 gun possession charge.
