Accused Felon Offers Freestyle Rap Defense

CBS Detroit, February 6, 2013

A Detroit man accused of threatening to kill his Warren girlfriend mounted his defense by song.

Callius Moon is facing two felony charges: malicious destruction of fire or police property and resisting or obstructing a police officer.

As he was arraigned Tuesday in Warren District court via video feed from a city lock up, Moon began telling his story in a freestyle rap.

He sang that people were trying to “put it on [him],” among other things. He then offered a few additional verses in which he began to use profanity. It was then that District Judge John Chmura told Moon “that’s good” and the “show’s over.”

    “Moon”; is he a black Korean?

    • The__Bobster

      Just a black ass.

  • a multiracial individual

    I have never personally seen a black-Korean couple.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Come to Colorado Springs. The kids look hideous.

      • a multiracial individual

        I thought Korean parents were among the least permissive on interracial dating?

        • The__Bobster

          There were a lot of old Z-head bar girls that wanted to emigrate at any price. Their parents weren’t too happy.

          And yes, the offspring are hideous.

            The hottest chic I know is half white(father) and half korean (mother). Don’t know much about her beyond that but she is spectacular.

            Eurasians tend to combine the best features of both parent races.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Even an Orc has a better appeal than an African’t. If I’d married an Uruk instead of a Japanese, I could admire her sharp teeth, she would be happier with me than an Orcish male, and our food budget would be extremely cheap. Our children would probably be useful in the Marine Corps. The down side is that since Orcs are descended from Elves, they’re probably immortal.

            Let’s think: coal black hide with wiry hair, a pig snout and serrated tusks. A tendency to eat fallen enemies. Pretty much immune to pain. If we had a son, we could name him “Heinrich”.

          Blacks are almost perceived as animals in China. Miscegenation and the resulting hybrid freaks are a serious no no.

      • Triarius

        Hines Ward

        • IstvanIN

          He still looks black.

          • Triarius

            Indeed. I am from Pittsburgh and didn’t even know he was half Korean until a family member told me. I thought he was just high yellow.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            He’s just black and not “high yellow”. I’m curious, though: are his poor mother’s eyefolds a dominant trait. Chinese usually have two epicanthic eyefolds for each eye, while Japanese have only one. Chinese also have much smaller teeth than whites or Japanese. To my eyes Chinese women are a bit prettier than Japanese gals, but in my experience also more materialistic.

        There were 2 kids in my high school that were 1/2 White & 1/2 Korean. They did have a unique look but it wasn’t freakish. BTW, they acted white and were generally treated as white. However, from my time in the service I have seen more than a few black/asian combinations and they are usually genetic train wrecks.

        Hines Ward was probably the first black person honored by the Korean government after he won the MVP for the Super Bowl.I’m kind of hard pressed to imagine Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rolling out the red carpet for TJ Houshmandzadeh (Iranian Father/Black Mother) or Catherine Bell (White Father/Iranian Mother) had either won the Super Bowl MVP or an Oscar (respectively).

  • JackKrak

    We should thank him for making the jury’s job that much easier.

    • Except…A Detroit jury would love what he did. To them, it’s the ne plus ultra of brilliance.

  • StillModerated

    If Warren Moon had a son ….

    For those of you who need help translating freestyle:

      Awesome beyond words.

  • [Guest]

    I expect that Callius Moon has quite a rap sheet.

    • StillModerated

      Here are some lyrics courtesy of Thaddeus Norris of Warrenton.

      “Although philanthropists can see
      The degrading effects of slavery,
      I cannot help thinking that this old creature
      Was a great advance on his African nature,
      And straighter of limb and thinner of lip
      Than his grandsire who came in the Yankee ship.
      “Albeit bent with the weary toil
      Of sixty years on the slave-trodden soil,
      Though thoughtless, and thriftless, and feeble of mind,
      His life was gentle, his heart was kind:
      He lived in a house, and loved his wife,
      And was higher far in hope and in life,
      And a nobler man, with his hoe in his hand,
      Than an African prince in his native land.
      “For perhaps the most odious thing upon earth
      Is an African prince in the land of his birth,
      With his negative calf and his convex shin,
      Triangular teeth and pungent skin;
      So bloated of body, so meagre of limb,
      Of passions so fierce, of reason so dim;
      So cruel in war, and so torpid in peace,
      So strongly addicted to entrails and grease;
      So partial to eating, by morning light,
      The wife who had shared his repose over night;
      In the blackest of black superstitions down-trod
      In his horrible rites to his beastly god,
      With all their loathesome and hideous mystery:
      But that has nothing to do with the fish story.”

        Thanks for posting a sample. If true, this is way beyond the literary competence of your average black rapper. Not even sure if it deserves to be called as rap, for it is clearly superior and deserves to be in another genre. I have a feeling this was ripped off from somewhere else (taking a cue from MLK, perhaps?)

  • There’s a youtube video :

    • Puggg

      “His mother said that when he’s not on his anti-schizophrenia medication, he raps.”

      Isn’t that an implication that rap and hip-hop are symptoms of a mental illness? The entire PR departments for WMG and UMG should be on Defcon 5.

    • [Guest]

      And according to the report the female who delivered this creature into the world is a nurse. How’d you like to be sick and have her tending to you?

      Also, does the head wrap indicate that she’s playing at being a Muhammadan?

      Photo of the rapper’s mother and brother attached.

    Well, since it’s Detroit, judge and jury will likely be all blacks. Slap on the wrist. As to the ridiculous way he presented his defense…..he was playing to the target audience. I wonder how many jurors were swaying, throwing hands, and moving their heads to his presentation?

    • Was there any “twerking?”
      We are abandoned.

    • Triarius

      I’ve done jury duty and have sat in for law class in Detroit. Almost all jurors are white, except that one black that fillibusters. Many decisions, including one of Kwame Kilpatrick’s trial (I knew a juror), was 11-1 because of the token black that refused to convict no matter what.

      That is the problem with out legal system, too many people lost the morals to justly convict or release, including judges and prosecutors.

      • Bill

        Since I’ve never been to Detroit except for a job interview with an auto manufacturer 30 years ago, I’ll take your word for it. Looked at the neighborhoods going in to the plant, and knew right then there was no way I was going to live there no matter how much they offered me as a foreman. It comes as NO surprise that even one black on a jury trying a black gets hung up. Guess that’s why back in the day, blacks weren’t ON juries….they were always found in the dock.

  • Tim

    There was an 80`s or 90`s comedy movie where all the guy can afford is an Evangelical Black lawyer who does pretty much the same thing. The seen it all White judge aquits because he can`t believe the whole circus and someone could be dumb or broke enough to hire him. The next thug in line then demands, “I want the Reverend for my lawyer!!” Anyone remember the movie? The guy had a high pitch sing song that was remarkable I must admit.

    • Tim

      Found it!! You tube Mo Money-The Lawyer… Sorry I don`t know how to repost on here. Someone? Thanks

  • IstvanIN

    Good golly, the mother of the rapper had an Aunt Jamima kerchief and the brother had two foot long dreads. Detroit is very strange.

  • Barrack Osama

    This is honestly embarrassing.

    • C_C_Conrad

      If I had a son he’d look like …
      Jack’s War

  • Luca

    The family is claiming that Callius is mentally ill. My question is how can they tell?

    Young, male negro, bothering people, rapping, cursing, resisting arrest and fighting with the police. Looks like a typical episode of Cops. If that passes for mentally ill then we have an epidemic on our hands. Thank God Obamacare will take care of it. Either that or we just need more money for our schools.

    • LOL Being a vulgar nuisance? That’s what being black is, isn’t it? Why do we need more words for it?

  • MekongDelta69

    Not “Cops” Luca – much more like “The First 48“.

    Even the Producer of “Cops” said he goes out of his way to make sure there aren’t too many blacks or browns portrayed on his show.
    (I think this was also mentioned on AmRen a while back. Either way, you can look it up.)

    I mentioned on here a while ago that “The First 48” shows about 75% blacks, 15% browns and 10% whites (and maybe 1% Orientals).

    SoSome high-level judeo christian is looking at GOLD right now.

  • bigone4u

    A looney toon guy making looney tune noises in a looney tune city. And I feel like a looney tune for commenting on it. To make me feel better, I will add that if I had mercifully been born 30 or so years earlier I might have passed on before rapping was invented. I could have lived an eternity without ever hearing rap and/or hip hop noises and seeing said feet and body movements (some call it dancing). Born too late we all were.

  • IstvanIN

    To be perfectly fair this guy very well may be mentally ill. As generally uncivilized and poorly behaved as blacks are this guy is really off the hook.

    • Luca

      You could be right. Rapping is a sure sign of mental illness or at least low IQ.

  • IKantunderstand

    I understand that Callius may in fact be mentally ill. Frankly, that generally does not stop a Black from expressing himself. I’d like to help out Callius. You know, extend a hand to a “brotha”. My freestyle:

    I be rappin’
    I be rappin, cuz if I don’t, I be snappin, I be snappin on yo honkey ass
    You crackers
    You be slackers
    We niggas did all the work
    We picked the cotton
    You be rotten
    You took credit for our work.
    Crap, I’m exhausted, now I know how Mozart felt.

  • SintiriNikos

    He never could become a successful rap artist due to White racism so he was driven to murder. It happens all the time.

  • PesachPatriot

    I have a feeling this probably isn’t the first time an accused felon tried to freestyle rap their way out of trouble in the detroit court system….The defendant probably doesn’t care if he gets sent to jail anyways…all his buddies are already there and he’ll get 3 hots and a cot.

    This honkey says:

    Dreams of Diane

    Love’s sweet glory, loss and pain
    years down the road, all yet remain.
    Of you,
    I still dream.

    Soft fair skin and golden hair,
    when sleep comes to me, you’re always there,

    I kiss you nights, caress your face,
    dreading we must part from our embrace
    at dawn
    when I awake.

    When a day’s despair towers,
    if I can wait a dozen hours
    my heart
    will not break.

    That’s the way to do the job.
