Brandon Duncan has no criminal record and is not a suspect in any murders. However, the San Diego rapper, who goes by the name Tiny Doo, is facing life in prison for the lyrics on his album, according to KGTV (San Diego).
Tiny Doo and 14 other gangbangers are all on trial for a series of gang-related shootings in San Diego since April 2013. Tiny Doo is not specifically charged with any of the shootings, but is instead being prosecuted by an obscure California law – approved by voters in 2000 – that prosecutes gang members who benefit from the actions of other gang members. Deputy District Attorney Anthony Campagna says that even though Tiny Doo isn’t known to have committed any murders, he has benefited – via increased sales of his most recent album, No Safety – by murders committed by his gang associates.
