The video for "Caught Up In These Streets," a standout from Atlanta rapper Young Scooter's recently released mixtape From The Cell Block To Your Block, leaked today. In it, Scooter offers some compelling portraits of said streets and drops matter-of-fact punchlines like "Introduced myself to the block and got caught up/You know I got a drug store/I got all the product."
He's joined by FreeBandz boss Future, who delivers his own playful verse, with lines like "I serve your uncle, auntie/I'm no discriminator/I'm drinking on promethyzine/Tropicana flavor." It's a straightforward street anthem with a video to match, and it's a lot of fun.
Less exciting is Scooter's current legal situation. According to MissInfo, the rapper, who was set to finish his sentence in Georgia's DeKalb Co. Jail for a probation violation in September, had a hold put on him by Hamilton County, Ohio. On account of a probation violation for his involvement in a check ring, he was sent to Cincinnati on September 26. His next court appearance is October 21.
In the mean time, his team has extended the message that Scooter appreciates his fans' support and that Street Lottery 2 can be expected as soon as he's out. A single with Cam'ron is anticipated for next week.
