Wanna Be Rapper Throw In Arkansas Jail Over Lyrical Content

A local rapper’s lyrics have become the center of a legal storm in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Reese Alexander Sullivan was arrested earlier this week amid allegations that his rap lyrics posed a credible threat to public safety.

The arrest echoes a larger national conversation about the role of lyrics in criminal proceedings. Sullivan’s lyrics, which authorities claim include direct threats to specific individuals, were deemed a step beyond artistic expression.

For instance, Sullivan threatened to shoot up schools, blow up churches, blow up the center, and assassinate the President.

Sullivan told the FBI that his wraps were meant to be jokes and that he did not believe the statements he was making.


This local incident mirrors the ongoing RICO trial of Atlanta rapper Young Thug, whose lyrics are being scrutinized for alleged evidence of criminal activity.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has argued that the lyrics are reflective of actual crimes, a stance that has raised concerns among advocates for artistic expression.

The arrest in Bentonville and the RICO trial both highlight the growing legal challenges facing artists, particularly in the genre of rap, where lyrics sometimes depict violence and street life.

In response to these concerns, Congressman Jamaal Bowman and Hank Johnson have reintroduced the Restoring Artistic Protection Act (RAP Act) to Congress.

The bill aims to safeguard artists from having their creative expressions against them in court. The proposed legislation, supported by the Black Music Action Coalition, seeks to ensure that lyrics are recognized as a form of artistic and personal expression rather than literal statements of intent or confession.

Details on the RAP Act can be found on Congressman Bowman’s official site.

As the RAP Act moves through Congress, the outcomes of these cases could set precedents that will influence the intersection of music, free speech, and legal accountability for years to come.

As for Sullivan, he was charged with felony terroristic threatening and released on $50,000 bail. His next court date is December 11.
