Best I Fuckin’ Told Y’all: Young Moose

For almost four years now, rapper Young Moose has been rhyming about what the feds finally exposed earlier this year: That Baltimore cops are dirty as hell. Taking on corrupt cops in hip-hop isn’t anything new really, but Moose shouted one out—Daniel Hersl—by name in a number of songs and laid out over a series of tracks all the ways the Baltimore Police had fucked with him and his family and fucked up his career. On the day that seven BPD cops were indicted—including Hersl—Moose was still in a halfway house, in part because of crimes he was charged with that now all look rather fishy given police corruption being so out in the open. But when City Paper stopped by the halfway house to say hey, Moose and his family were exuberant because these bad cops were off the streets and perhaps now, Moose could move along with his career unfettered.
