Memphis, TN – How far would you go for a record deal? While some up-and-coming rappers rely on Boonk Gang-esque hijinks and car freestyles to get themselves noticed, one 23-year-old Memphis, Tennessee hopeful took a much more desperate approach.
Last week, two suspects attempted to hold up a Midtown location Wingstop, a chain withÂ some locations owned by notorious MMG head honcho,Â Rick Ross. As reported by News Channel 3 in Memphis, one the suspects, Cedric Miller — whoÂ police have identified as the man withÂ no mask on in the surveillance video — was allegedly trying to get Yung RÃ©nzÃ©l’s attention.
âThatâs a ridiculous way to get someoneâs attention. How are you going to get his attention after sitting in jail?” Cameron Blaine, a Wingstop customer, told News Channel 3. “I donât know if he is going to get signed if thatâs the case,” said Huron Wilson, another customer, adding, “I doubt it.â
The two would-be criminals left the restaurant empty handed and adding insult to injury, all the news reports seem to have deliberately left out any link or mention his actual music, so nobody — not even Ross — can hear it, even if they wanted to.
