  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: When Detective Zach Nichols explains the difference between rapper and emcee to the victim's parents he makes a mistake. He tells the parents that a rapper just raps and an emcee raps if he wishes but also acts as master of ceremonies. This is incorrect. In hip hop parlance emcee is the original term for a rapper. Emcee evolved to rapper with the conversion of hip hop to rap in the early 1990s.
