(AllHipHop News) Everything that goes around, comes back around.

In 2011, Los Angeles gang member Darren King released a music video for “Floccin,” a term used for breaking into a home and robbing it.

The lyrics read, ‘Ding dong, nobody home, take the cash and the grams.”

In 2016, the rapper was arrested for knock-knock burglaries that took place in Simi Valley.

After posting bail and failing to appear in court, King fled the scene, with a $1 million warrant issued for his arrest.

Last week, authorities picked up King, who released the video under the alias Cowboy, was charged on four counts of residential burglary and one count of street terrorism in Ventura County.

He along with seven others were accused of stealing more than $200,000 in cash, jewelry and firearms.

Deputy district attorney J.P. LeCedre reports each offense was committed for the benefit of or in association with the Rollin ’30s Harlem Crips gang.

During a recent arraignment, King pleaded not guilty and will now face trial.

His defense attorney, Lauren Noriega, declined to comment on the case.

In 2017, Compton, California rapper YG was criticized Los Angeles police department, over his 2014 song "Meet The Fockers.”

The cops claim the rapper's song has inspired a number of robberies specifically targeting Asians, over the past several years.
