RAPPERS IN RAP
Rap music producer Deric “D-Dot” Angellettie and another man were charged with beating the editor of Blaze, a hip-hop magazine. Angellettie and Anthony Hubbard, both 30, were charged in New York this week with assault and criminal possession of a weapon after they voluntarily went to a police station for questioning. Jesse Washington, Blaze’s editor in chief, said he was kicked repeatedly in the face and head and beaten with chairs at his office because the magazine published in its Dec./Jan. issue a “postage stamp-sized” photograph identifying Angellettie as the Madd Rapper. He identified Angellettie and Hubbard as two of four men who allegedly attacked him Monday. Angellettie lawyer Ian Niles said the allegations were not true.
