One Virginia rapper just couldn’t help bragging about the bodies he allegedly caught when he was just 16-years-old.
Newport News’ Twain Gotti – born Antwain Steward – was arrested on double homicide charges earlier this month after detectives linked a 2007 cold case with the rapper’s lyrics. Detectives believe Steward’s lyrics for a 2009 song entitled “Ride Out,” posted on his Myspace page, speaks on the killings:
“Listen, walk to your boy and I approached him, 12 midnight on his traphouse porch and everybody saw when I muthaf*ckin choked him. But nobody saw when I muthaf*ckin smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him, 357 Smith & Wesson beam scoped him, roped him, had me crackin up so I joked him, it’s betweezy six feet ova, told ya f*ckin with my money I’ll roast ya.”
According to court documents, a then 16-year-old Steward and two other suspects were involved with the Wickzoo street gang in 2007. Witnesses say Steward and one of the victims – Christopher Horton – fought prior to his murder and Newport News detectives believe the shootings were gang-related since Horton was a member of the Dump Squad gang. Detectives also believe Steward is the current leader of the Wickzoo gang, which is now called MOR3SH3LLZ.
A few days after Steward was arrested and placed in jail, detectives say he made a phone call to his girlfriend who alerted him of his mother’s plan to send someone to erase the content’s of his computer. This led to more search warrants which in turn led to the seizure of several computers, cell phones and other electronic items.
Though Steward remains behind bars, his Twitter account remains active.
