Rawcus is a rapper from Atlanta, who dropped a song and video three days ago called “White People Crazy.” In the video, Rawcus’ hands and face are entirely obscured, and his shadows dance over clips of white people doing the darnedest things.
Not much is known about Rawcus, although he did share a hilarious bio about himself. Check out some of it:
“His mother was a drug dealer in earlier life before he was born but as she got more into selling drugs she was eventually hooked she moved into prostitution when Rawcus was 5 years old. He was beaten by his father until his father was sent to prison for bank robbery charges.”
Rawcus really had it hard it seems:
“He later returned to his mothers not long after his 18th birthday where he witnessed weekly beatings to his mother by her new husband whom she had married in Rawcus’ absence. Rawcus along with his mother and step father were selling drugs out of their small apartment in Atlanta which led to many fights over money during strung out highs”
“One day Rawcus came home to his mother stabbed, laying on the kitchen floor nearly beaten to death with his step father standing over her kicking her. Rawcus then drew a fire arm and shot his step father killing him instantaneously. He then called the police for an ambulance to save his mother while surrendering himself at the same time. His mother passed away 2 days later in the hospital while Rawcus was in the county jail.”
“Rawcus received 10 years in prison for plea of murder reduced to involuntary manslaughter. He then served 6 years and was released in 2013.”
