Movers is a British rapper currently stirring up some controversy with an album called Exit Wounds. The CD version has been selling for 10 pounds a pop and has been available for streaming through Spotify.
The controversy? Movers’ real name is Terngu Agera. He’s serving a 30-year sentence for stabbing a man who was waiting for a bus. The album was recorded at least 18 months ago on a smuggled smartphone inside his jail cell.
Spotify spins were facilitated through an account held by his sister while CDs were sold through a website.
Lovely stuff, too. Here are a few lines:
Murder squad got me 30 locked, my lawyer said he’ll bring it down.
Spotify has pulled the album. Watch the CDs become highly collectible and end up on places like YouTube and SoundCloud. Meanwhile, the family of the victim is furious.
