Notorious Rudy? From Giuliani’s Policing To Biggie Smalls’ Evolution | MSNBC

 

As Rudy Giuliani faces new heat over the indictment of several of his associates who donated to a Trump PAC, MSNBC traces how Giuliani pushed a “tough on crime agenda” that was also echoed by top Democrats in the 1990s, including Joe Biden and the Clintons, who backed a harsh crime bill in 1994. There is more to the story, however, as crime and tough policing formed the environment that raised New York rapper Christopher Wallace, also known as Biggie Smalls, who narrated the ‘everyday struggle’ of his neighborhood and wrote candidly about everything from depression and stereotypes facing black men to Giuliani’s approach to the city. In this segment, MSNBC’s Ari Melber traces that history in the context of today’s news and the 25th anniversary of Biggie’s album ‘Ready to Die,’ and cites an event MSNBC sponsored featuring Brooklyn Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Havoc, Kim Osorio, Lord Finesse and Ebro Darden, now available as an exclusive podcast on “The Beat with Ari Melber” podcast or at msnbc.com/biggie. Aired on 10/10/19.

  1. Rudi, a former attorney at the SDNY, is on collision course with his former colleagues. “Life, it seems, is not without irony”, as Morpheus said.

    1. “Oooooh,” my goodness graciousnesses” I love it when a plan comes together!! If you don’t want the Swamp-Rats with the fleas in a cage you must take away the cage Builder! Before you can get the fleas off the swamp rats, you must catch the Swamp-Rats in a very secure cage!! Swamp Cockroaches are beginning to look for a place to hide!!! WWG1WGA!!
      The Deep State swamp rats and roaches will soon be jumping ship!! The ship will no longer hold its course!!

  2. One can only imagine the reaction of Donna Hanover to Rudy’s descent into infamy and disgrace. She learned Rudy was divorcing her when saw it on tv with Rudy’s press conference announcement. These trump boys are such sweet guys.

  3. Ari you’re a true ny cat for real rest in paradise big !!!!gone too Soon biggie but wow you made MSNBC!!!!!Ari and biggie!? I know Mrs Wallace is so proud !!!!

  4. Better put them on “suicide watch” they sounded very depressed. Very damaging for Trump IF they have any knowledge or can point out the rocks for the IMPEACHMENT PRObe to look under. Saw EPSTEIN in several photos with his friend DONALD TRUMP, and before any damaging information could potentially see the light of day. He killed hisself, hope those blokes are being watched.

  5. Is Uncle Rudy going to that home we talked about? The one from the brochure? I’m not sure I’m ready for that… 🙁

  6. 1 2 3 Oh…
    Tutti frutti, oh Rudy
    Tutti frutti, oh Rudy, ooooo
    Wop bop a loo bop a lop bam boom!

    I got a cell for you. Big enough for two.
    I got a cell for you. Big enough for two.
    Bars to the east. Walls to the West.
    You’re the ghoul who’s the ghouliest.

    Tutti frutti, oh Rudy
    Tutti frutti, oh Rudy, ooooo
    Wop bop a loo bop a lop bam boom!

  7. Remember when little Ari had to have his hand held every step of the way, and was so whiny and impatient for Mommy Pelosi to cross the street in heavy traffic during rush hour, instead of waiting for the green light, like she kept telling him?

  8. “Oooooh,” my goodness graciousnesses” I love it when a plan comes together!! If you don’t want the Swamp-Rats with the fleas in a cage you must take away the cage Builder! Before you can get the fleas off the swamp rats, you must catch the Swamp-Rats in a very secure cage!! Swamp Cockroaches are beginning to look for a place to hide!!! WWG1WGA!!
    The Deep State swamp rats and roaches will soon be jumping ship!! The ship will no longer hold its course!!

  9. I have the feeling Ghouliani could be TIME’s _Person of the year_ again. Though this time for different reasons.
