Article from the British National Party (BNP) website about Lethal B's recent incitement for the murder of their leader Nick Griffin:
British National Party legal officer Lee Barnes has laid a criminal charge against Ghanaian-origin rap singer “Lethal Bizzle” after he called for Nick Griffin’s murder on Twitter.
Lethal Bizzle, whose real name is Maxwell Ansah, sent out a Twitter message yesterday which read: “Got an idea, u wanna be famous? Kill the BNP leader, u will be a hero.”
Mr Barnes said this was a threat which could not be taken lightly.
“He is linked with black gun gangs in London and this constitutes a serious threat,” Mr Barnes said.
The Serious Crime Act 2007, section 45 states that a person commits an offence if:
(a)he does an act capable of encouraging or assisting the commission of an offence; and
(i)that the offence will be committed; and
(ii)that his act will encourage or assist its commission.
“Mr Ansah’s twitter is clearly an incitement to serious violence against Nick Griffin,” Mr Barnes said.
“Imagine if a threat like that had been issued by Mr Griffin against Mr Ansah. The BNP leader would have been arrested within minutes, but it seems that black rappers are somehow protected.”
They then quote some lyrics from his biggest tune, Pow! (which they describe as 'jungle noises') but fail to realize it's not his lyrics they're quoting as they copy and paste Jamakabi's quasi-patois verse...
It's definitly worth checking the comments to this article also, one of my favourite being one contributors' attempts to submit some additional lyrics:
I cant count so I use ma fingas,
I'm stuck on too pleeze help outta this singa
wun, too, ?
wun, too, for ?
wun, too, sevvun ?
