NYPD Goes After Drake, Chris Brown & Suge Knight?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
The other day it was confirmed that a shooting took place at a party Chris Brown hosted and the incident resulted in Suge Knight getting shot multiple times, but it appears the NYPD is taking steps to make sure the same kind of scenario doesn’t happen in the Big Apple.
According to a new report, the NYPD has formed a specialist unit called the “Hip-Hop Police,” and they are specifically targeting Chris Brown, Drake and Suge Knight.

The NYPD’s “Hip-Hop Squad” has a number of rappers and stars — including Drake, Chris Brown and French Montana — on a special watch list and is stepping up surveillance on their New York parties in the wake of the Suge Knight shooting in LA, we’re told.
The shadowy specialist unit, known locally as the “Hip-Hop Police,” keeps a list of rappers and hip-hop stars whose shows and night club appearances are closely monitored. It also includes Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Jim Jones and Lil Wayne.
A source told us: “All New York club owners are required to inform the Hip-Hop Police in advance if anyone on the watch list is coming in. They want to be there to monitor the crowd and in case any trouble starts.” The insider added, “They don’t want any situations like the Suge Knight shooting. If something does go down, they want to already be on the scene.”
