Twain Gotti Accused of Double Murder After Rapping of Killing in Song
This is a classic case of when keeping it real goes wrong. A 22-year-old Virginia rapper was arrested earlier this month and charged with a double homicide after he allegedly rapped about the deed in a song.
Antwain "Twain Gotti" Steward is accused of shooting and killing Christopher Horton and Brian Dean on their front porch in Newport, Va., in 2007. The aspiring rapper was 16 years old at the time when he committed the alleged murder.
According to Gawker, the homicide case went cold for four years, until Newport News Police detective got a tip from two witnesses that led him to Steward's song, 'Ride Out,' in which he brags about murdering Horton.
"Listen, walk to your boy and I approached him / 12 midnight on his traphouse porch and everybody saw when I f---in' choked him," he raps. "But nobody saw when I f---in' smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him / 357 Smith & Wesson... scoped him, roped him, had me crackin' up so I joked him."
For his part, Steward denies police's claims.
"Don't believe that BS," he tweeted. "S/o to everybody that's supporting thru the BS. Innocent is a fact!!!! Y'all know with love comes hate!!"
Meanwhile, Horton's sister told WAVY News 10 that she believes Steward is guilty of the crime.
"He's basically a murderer in my eyes," she told the news outlet. "[A conviction] will help. It won't bring my brother back, but it will give some closure that we need right now."
