Teen Rapper C Blu just can’t keep himself out of trouble. The Brooklyn drill rapper previously posted a $250K bail on felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon charges. Now those criminal charges against C Blu, who was suspected of shooting at a cop, have been dropped.
The city’s Law Department withdrew the complaint according to the New York Daily News. After a judge labelled his arresting officer’s testimony “unreliable” and “self-serving,” C Blu was found not guilty a few months later. Spokesperson Nicholas Paolucci told the Daily News about the decision.
The Law Department has determined that this case cannot be prosecuted. But let’s be clear: Just because the city cannot prosecute doesn’t mean this individual should have been carrying an illegal weapon — a weapon which contributed to both him and an officer being shot.
Camrin Williams, also known as C Blu, was originally charged with attempted murder. Before being dropped, the charges were reduced to criminal possession of a weapon and assault. When Williams was released on a $250,000 bond in January, New York City Mayor Eric Adams chastised him.
In a statement about her client avoiding prosecution, C Blu’s attorney Dawn Florio mentioned the mayor. Mayor Adams and the NYPD utilized the press to defame his client, accusing him of shooting a cop. His client is overjoyed that the case will be closed and sealed, with all accusations dismissed.
