Two violent criminals have released a rap music video from a prison cell while they serve time.
Demehl Thomas and Moysha Shepherd posted the song after it was filmed at Birmingham Prison – reportedly using a mobile phone in defiance of prison rules.
As reported in the Birmingham Mail at the time, Shepherd was jailed for four years and nine months in December 2013 for helping free a fellow criminal from a prison van.
The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to conspiring to help him escape from lawful custody.
He was one of seven men sentenced to more than 34 years in jail for a brutal breakout when they ambushed a prison van with guns and sledgehammers.
According to The Sun, Thomas is serving a sentence for aggravated burglary.
Thomas performs under the name Remtrex, and has even released an album on iTunes called ‘Goonlyfe’ which talks about a life of crime.
He appears with Shepherd, also known as Big Stygs, in the clip which has been viewed 10,000 times.
During the rap Thomas says: “I wanna mansion and I want my kids to live good.
“I don’t want to get locked up or killed in the hood.”
The 25-year-old goes on to threaten to ‘blast heads’ adding he has no time for ‘fake ho’s’.
A second mobile phone can be seen charging on the table during the video, as the pair perform wearing black tank tops.
HMP Birmingham Director Pete Small told the Sun an internal investigation was underway over the video.
The prison holds around 1,450 prisoners, is managed by G4S and dates back to 1849.
