Rapper ‘I Heart Memphis’ Accused Of Gang Rape
I Heart Memphis, the rapper behind the “Hit The Quan” craze, real name was Richard Colbert, is facing some serious legal issues just as his song is catching on nationally. Memphis police allege that the rapper and one other man drugged and gang-raped a young woman back in May. Via WREG:
Colbert was one of two men accused of gang raping a woman, who was under the influence, at a home on Long Meadow in Raleigh. On Tuesday, WREG spoke to the rapper who said he did not do it.
“No, I did not,” Colbert responded when asked if he raped the victim.
Colbert was out of town recording music on Tuesday but told WREG over the phone that the victim was lying. “I was at the wrong place, wrong time, and my name got caught up in something,” Colbert explained.
However, Police in Memphis disagreed with that claim. Police are still looking for a third suspect, a female between 18 and 23-years-old.
Colbert said he was planning to fight the charge and said he would not let it get in the way of his, now popular, music. Colbert and a second man charged in the case are expected in court on Wednesday.
Yikes! Why is there so much of this going on these days?? SMH.
