20 Memorable Fictional Characters From Rap Songs

Millie

From: De La Soul "Millie Pulled a Pistol on Santa" (1991)

Who they were: During their early years, De La Soul kept the subject matter on their albums relatively light. So when they introduced Millie—a girl who was molested by her own father—to the mix, it was pretty shocking. Even more shocking? Their tale of how Millie eventually killed her father while he was working as a Santa Claus in a department store.

Where are they now? We would like to think that Millie ran away after shooting her father, found some sort of peace over the course of the next two decades, and is now raising a family of her own. But on their 2009 song, "Millie Fell Off the Fire Escape," rap duo Atmosphere offered up a different take. They revealed that Millie actually ran away, got chased down by police, and eventually died when she fell off a fire escape while trying to evade the cops. Let's hope that's not what actually happened.
