Rising Rapper Arrested Over Eminem Allegations
Posted on May 29, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
An aspiring rapper who has recently accused Eminem of stealing his lyrics has been arrested on three misdemeanor charges.
Police charged Shawn Steven Baker accounts of harassment, terrorist threats and disorderly conduct after he left 12 threatening messages to district police authorities.
The rapper was dis-satisified with the response time his original claim was taking and decided to force the issue via a series of violent approaches. The initial claim was that Eminem had used without consent his own personal lyrics in both "Rain Man" and "Just Lose It".
The claims lost all credibility when threatening messages were received and a history of similar allegations had been filed which were traced back.
