Evans High student turned mass-murdering warlord releases rap song!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 17, 2008 at 9:55 AM

"I want to see blood."

That's retired Brig. Gen. John Tarnue's recollection of what former Evans High student Chucky Taylor would say to his underlings as a Anti-Terrorist military leader (and son of the President) in Liberia.

"In my presence he tortured people. He didn't touch them, but he gave them the order," says Tamue.

"Chucky was very much like the Hussein sons," says David Crane, founding chief prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone. "He was completely above the law, protected by his father and his henchmen."

This is in a Rolling Stone article this week as Taylor begins his trial in Miami on charges of war crimes. He's the first civilian in American history to be charged with committing torture abroad.

Another wonderful Orlando success story.

Well, now the mass-murdering fuckhead has released a rap song! Recorded in Trinidad, "Angel" is the kind of sped-up soul-sampling beat Kanye used to specialize in (before he, you know, went crazy) and it's weirdly not bad. Taylor takes a cue from Ja Rule's thug-love growl, with the added element of a bone-chilling, off-key sung bridge that could be his "Singing in the Rain" from Clockwork Orange. One can only imagine how many people heard that low voice the moment before they were beheaded. Jesus, man.

Listen if you dare, but keep in mind this isn't gangsta fantasy.
