The life of a rapper is full of ups and downs and everyone knows it by now. While the fame and money are great, the risk of gang warfare and subsequent deaths is everpresent. One rapper seems to have gotten very lucky when it comes to his lawsuit as well.
According to VladTV, Baltimore rapper Young Moose had previously filed a lawsuit against Baltimore police officer Daniel Hersl. He ended up winning a $300,000 settlement after the lawsuit.
Hersl was part of the infamous Gun Trace Task force depicted in the HBO series We Own This City. Young Moose, real name Kevron Evans, filed the lawsuit last year in March.
Moose alleged that Hersl and other officers planted crack cocaine on him during a 2012 encounter. As revealed by the lawsuit, the false arrest led to Evans being incarcerated and led to the downfall of his hip-hop career.
“In order to resolve this case, avoiding the expense, time, and uncertainties of further protracted litigation and the potential for an excess judgment, BPD and the city agreed to offer plaintiff a settlement payment of $300,000.00,” said the Board of Estimates
It is safe to say that justice was served, even if this time around, the right side of the law turned out to do the wrong thing. Regardless, Young Moose is certainly happy he got the money that he deserved.
