    Philadelphia Police Outraged Over Firefighter Rapper's Lyrics

    Philadelphia Police Outraged Over Firefighter Rapper's Lyrics
    Tuesday , April 17, 2007

    PHILADELPHIA —
    Police union officials called for the immediate firing of a city firefighter and aspiring rapper who wrote anti-police lyrics about turning "pigs into bacon bits."
    The Fraternal Order of Police on Monday demanded the dismissal of Rodney Jean-Jacques, who raps under the name Cal Akbar.
    "I got a surprise for them cops," Jean-Jacques raps, as sounds of gunfire erupt in the background. "I hope the news is taping this, 'cause I'm gonna turn pigs into bacon bits."
    The untitled song surfaced last week on a Web site promoting Jean-Jacques' record, "Sin City Vol. 1," and his record company, the Larsiny Family.
    Bob Eddis, president of the local FOP chapter, said he gave Jean-Jacques a deadline of midnight Sunday to provide a written apology that the police union could post on its Web site, but none came.
    "I think at first it might have been a mistake of the head," Eddis said. "But now I believe it's a mistake of the heart. It's a disgrace. He is a city employee and he should be held accountable for making these statements."
    Brian McBride, head of the Philadelphia Fire Fighters Union Local 22, said officials were hoping Jean-Jacques would issue an apology soon and that he was trying to get Jean-Jacques to do so.
    "Naturally, I condemn and strongly disagree with any song that recommends any kind of violence towards our brothers and sisters in blue in the police department," McBride said.
    Jean-Jacques told the Philadelphia Daily News via e-mail: "Mum's the word. I want to tell my side of the story but I can't just yet. I have to clear it with my superiors."
    Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers would not comment other than to say the matter is under investigation.
    Joe Grace, spokesman for Mayor John Street, said union officials and the police and fire commissioners were discussing the issue and "all parties are taking it very seriously."
    Jean-Jacques' music received positive notice in 2005, when he wrote and performed "Take It Outside," a song encouraging fire safety. The song was promoted by the Fire Department and was shown during the broadcast of a football game between the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys.

    WTF??

    This firefighter sounds like an idiot. I hope his rapping "career" goes down the toilet, along with his job...

    Just trying to make main stream. That was a money move. That is what is "cool" and what sells, so that is what he did. A shame he sold out.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    WTF? He obviously didn't have to clear it with his supervisors to make the stupid ass song! It is clearly his way of saying "I don't intend to apologize" while he hopes it all blows over. I agree with 10-42 Adam.

    I was thinking the EXACT same thing. He probably made the decision right about when, oh, that song about FAGGY FIRE SAFETY tanked.

    I am as thrilled about 'Grandmaster FD' here as I was to see Ice-T portray a cop for TV and movies.


    A curse on the home of any idiot who actually spends money to hear this hermaphrodite. May he suck in a flashover.

    This being the public side of this site precludes my answering this particular thread.

    We are the thin blue line

    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY!!!!!!!!!! What kind of a nerd writes a song about fire safety? Street cred=zero...so I guess he had to make an anti-cop song to get back above the "Gansta Mendoza Line."

    Typical fireman bullshit. Biggest bunch of sissies on the earth. "Americas Real Heroes" right, it takes a hero to save a foundation of a building. I know I want a job that requires I play with a hose and have to sleep in a room with 10 other guys in my nice little fire department issued pj's. Pussies.

    I don't know how it works elsewhere but the medical first responders here are the firemen. The guys here will go through hell hauling a** to get to an injured LEO. Two of the paramedics even went through SWAT medic school, several SWAT tactical schools, and the Reserve Academy to be a part of our team. Both are pretty good, level headed operators. I have a lot of respect for them in general but there are a few bad apples.
