Youtube video embed of "King Night," blog post is by John Hoff
Nitelen Jackson, currently incarcerated, got his fair share of publicity here on JNS blog but it was a lot more than other people's shares. In the course of researching YouTube videos uploaded by Exotica Taylor, a stripper associated with another crime story involving a stolen gun and a fractured skull, I came upon this video, above, featuring Nitelen Jackson.
Jackson is highly identifiable by his face and distinctive tattoos, as well as his alias, King Night or King Nite. In fact, some of the lyrics in the song reflect stuff he posted on Facebook, specifically the repetition of the phrase "every day."
The song, which is done quite skillfully though this blogger is not the world's biggest fan of gangster rap music, has some very interesting lines...
Here are the two lines I find most interesting.
"Already got a body on that throwaway." (This appears to reference a "throwaway" gun of the type you use in a crime, but get rid of quickly. If the gun has a body on it, then it's been used in a murder and is the very hottest sort of gun, not something you want on your person if taken into police custody)
"I start wiping down the .38"
And yes, maybe it's just art...
Or maybe it's art making specific and detailed reference to life.
