Video: Memphis Cop's Rap Video Questioned

VIDEO: Tenn. Cop Seen In Violent Rap Video

The Memphis (Tenn.) Police Department has opened an investigation into an officer who appeared in a rap video promoting violence and a thug lifestyle.

Officer Candyance Davis, an aspiring rapper known as Quolove, appeared in a YouTube video of her song "Gimme Me." She can be seen throwing cash and shouting, 'If they don't give me my money, I'll f*** them up.'"

The officer's family told WREG that she doesn't live the lifestyle she's promoting in the video and is only pursuing a side job.

Watch the full video here.

I find it disgusting..........complete disgrace to her dept., she is promoting a life style that is unacceptable conduct especially for a Police Officer. This thug lifestyle is one of the major problems we have without a Police Officer promoting more violence and this type of lifestyle etc..........she should be fired so she can follow her real passion. What a POS.

Serious? She's a POS, Mike? I don't see much, if anything wrong with her freedom to express herself. Hollywood portrays officers negatively all the time. It's an "act". I don't see her using any department issued gear or anything referencing her agency or police in general. She has the same freedoms we all swear to protect.

We as LEO's must maintain our Professional AND Personal lives at a higher standard than anyone else. We are under constant scrutiny from the public and the media for any percieved indiscretions. This person (I wont call her an officer) is glorifying a lifestyle that is at constant odds with law enforcement. You cant have both. You cant be the police during the day and a "thug" at night. Its time to pick one or the other. If you watch the entire video, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what they're rapping about. An unpaid drug deal. She is telling someone to pay her for her drugs or they will "bleed". What kind of example is she setting for the youth of the community? What would she tell some young Elementary School kid if they were to ask her about the video? Would she encourage them to stay in school and out of trouble? Possibly pursue a career in Law Enforcement? Or would she glorify the drug dealing, law breaking so-called "Thug" lifestyle? She is a complete embarassment to her department and every one of us that wear a badge.

This is a completely different situation than the article I just responded to - a female Sgt. posting racy photos on a modeling website without any reference to her department. This one is over the line. We work against violence. This (C)rapper is promoting it. Disgusting.

C.T. Carlson @ 10/8/2012 11:10 AM

I agree with Jim. I would support firing this one. The previous article is a non-issue. Obviously, there is more to both stories.

It's sad to see that good friends of mine cannot get hired on a PD that would be great in LE, yet we have this individual potraying a THUG Life.......I feel she is an embarrassment to the agency she works for.....
