Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Acevedo Jr. appeared as "Young Reek" in this 2009 "Top Gunnaz" gangster rap video.
The Philadelphia Police Department has launched an internal investigation into an officer who once sued the department for police brutality, then turned to a gangster rap career, before joining the department, reports the Daily News.
Two years ago, Officer Robert Acevedo Jr. performed as "Young Reek," appearing shirtless in rap videos flashing $100 bills with co-stars holding what look like drugs. Lyrics in the video "Top Gunnaz" include: "A top gunner, flyer than Tom Cruise, I pop dudes, Rockin' 'em, knockin' 'em out they shoes."
Acevedo was also one of three plaintiffs in a lawsuit, which claimed that they were beaten by police on Nov. 11, 2005 in Juniata Park. The suit was settled out of court in January 2008 for $72,500.
He joined the police department a year ago.
