(Newser) – An aspiring Brooklyn rapper is suing the NYPD because he says officers humiliated him by making him rap for his freedom, reports the New York Post. Quinshon Shingles, 28, got handcuffed in a friend's home as police conducted a search, and the lawsuit says that when the "vicious, wicked, and cold-hearted" officers learned he hoped to be a rapper, they told him to rap an entire song and promised to let him go if he did well. He "was thus compelled to perform a rap song for his freedom," per the complaint; they undid the cuffs and released him, and now he's suing for false imprisonment. (Read more NYPD stories.)
