Internet Rap Battle Gets Solon Teens In Trouble

The information in this report is from the Solon Police Department. An arrest does not mean a conviction.

Two Solon teens face possible disciplinary action at school and criminal charges after an Internet rap battle went overboard and became threatening, according to a Solon Police report.

The two 15-year-olds were trying to out rap each other in videos posted to a social media site. One of the teens created a video on Facebook disrespecting the other teen, who then made a video in retalition, according to the report. That video included threats, according to police.

The videos were forwarded on to friends, who were alarmed enough to go to school administrators.

The police report says the boys will be dealt with internally at the school, and that the matter has also been forwarded to Solon Police's juvenile officer.

The rap battle itself didn't go overboard, it was the students at SHS that went overboard. They were thinking to litereal of the lyrics causing them to spread the word about the rap battle and then scaring others. Those to teens wouldn't harm each other or even harm anyone else.
