(AllHipHop News) A Hip Hop artist co-operating with the police will hurt a person’s brand quicker than a chain snatching, apparently. Yesterday (June 18th), Slowbucks denies he snitched on 50 Cent or anyone involved in Slowbucks’ assault and robbery at Summer Jam and speaks on regrets of the now infamous press conference.
On June 5th, Slowbucks held a press conference at Bostany Law Firm in New York City and had civil Investigator John P Bostany explain why Slowbucks would be investigating 50 Cent and his affiliates. According to Slowbucks during an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, he regrets the press conference due to the fact he did not speak for himself:
That press conference killed me, it hurt me. Honestly if I would (do it again) I’d be the one speaking like I’m speaking now. Not gon’ let nobody speak for me. The press conference actually let me know who’s who.
Less than a week after the press conference occurred, 50 Cent affiliate Mikey Fingers was arrested in connection to the June 1st assault and robbery of Slowbucks during Hot 97’s Summer Jam. While Slowbucks does admit to participating in police questioning over the incident, he explains how a potential lawsuit against 50 Cent and co-operation with the police did not constitute “snitching”:
If you get into a car accident and you sue, is that considered snitching? It’s the same thing. I see a lot of tough guys do that so I’m just asking. Snitching? If that person can provide some paperwork or is going to jail I’ll sign my company over. You get picked up for questioning. How you not gon’ get picked up for questioning. I got picked up for questioning. There’s no snitching on my record.
