Chamillionaire recently spoke about hip-hop police and why rappers seem to expose their criminal activities through their music. The Houston rapper says with the number of currently locked up rappers proves his point. "It's amazing how much people say on raps," Cham said in an interview. "People say it's just your imagination; but at the end of the day it does paint a picture about you, and whether it's true or false, I'm sure there are people watching. How many rappers are in jail now? I think the music only reflects the lifestyle. I don't think there'd be a lot of police looking to find crack on me, but if it's somebody who talks about that and guns all day, they might try to catch a burner on them."
Producer slash Mobb Deep right-hand man, Alchemist recently talked about the impact of the hip-hop cops and how it messes with the rap music game. "They profile rappers," Al said in an interview. "They are knowledgable of who is in the rap game…They know who Alchemist is. They know who Prodigy is so when they drive around New York they see 'em, they follow where they're going, they take pictures, they put together a book…cause they know all the rappers are friends with people in the street, they come from the street…They wanna make connections now so when somebody gets shot or some drug deal goes down, they got all the info…They wanna know the guys in the streets that hang out with the artists. If you listen to rap, nine times outta ten we're snitching on ourselves…Like Supreme who was connected with Ja Rule…They start saying f*ck that, we're gonna start watching all these rappers and see who they're friends with."
