The two nice young men who produced a hip hop video under the name NMB STUNNAZ entitled Pull Out The Stick are just aspiring entrepreneurs who want to break into the music business.
Their stage names are Eb Da Iceman and Slimm Kidd.
Audiomack lauds the group as being “fully developed; knows how to conduct business and carry themselves accordingly.”
Oh, and did I mention the lead hip-hopper likes to shoot cops?
I guess that must be the hilarious part of their act.
As everyone knows by now, Elton L. Bandoo was arrested yesterday for shooting North Miami Beach Police Officer Lino Diaz.
Fortunately, Officer Diaz wasn’t killed.
When I first posted this video on April 27, 2013, there had been a rash of gun and gang violence in North Miami Beach. Voters Opinion “crime reporter” Karin Kimball researched the crime statistics for a presentation at a city council meeting, and posted her column here on June 3, 2013. Karin told the council that gang violence had increased due to the fact that the North Miami Beach Police Department’s Gang Unit had been disbanded.
That was almost two years ago. Despite promises to bring it back, the Gang Unit is still MIA.
(As an aside, that’s one of the reasons I finally got the hell out of dodge and moved north of the border.)
At the time of the budget cuts to the Police Department, and subsequent layoffs, there were some cop-hating NMB residents who absolutely insisted there were no gangs in North Miami Beach. They were praising the city council for dismantling the Gang Unit and other specialized teams in the interest of saving money.
In light of the most recent shooting of a police officer by someone who apparently appears to be a gang member, I wonder how all that downsizing is working out for them.
In their signature video, Pull Out The Stick, The members of NMB STUNNAZ proudly flash their weapons as they challenge anyone who cares to watch, “You say you got guns, well we got guns, too!”
And, they ain’t playin’.
He was met by gunfire.
He’s lucky to be alive.
Don’t tell me there are no gangs in North Miami Beach.
Don’t tell me NMB doesn’t need a Gang Unit.
Don’t tell me there isn’t a War on Cops.
I can see it from my house.
They can see it from across the pond.
UPDATE: NBC Miami just reported that Bandoo is charged with first-degree attempted murder.
