The sentences of 6 and 5 years in prison for Baby Gang and Simba La Rue are final

In the end Baby Gang and Simba La Rue were sentenced respectively to 6 years and 4 months and 5 years and 2 months in prison for the shooting that occurred on the night between 2 and 3 July 2022 in via Tocqueville in Milan where two were injured men.

Right now that Baby Gang is planning a tour in the arenas and which in theory should be on May 6th on the stage of the Assago Forum. Both artists have recently released new music, Simba La Rue released his first album, Tunnel, which did quite well in terms of numbers, while Baby Gang released the single Hebs.

What is sobering, beyond the conviction, is the way in which Baby Gang and Simba La Rue were described in court.

As La Repubblica reports, in the reasons for the verdict, the Court of Milan used these words to describe the two artists as “archaic hunters who had themselves portrayed alongside lifeless animal prey”.

According to the judges, the eight defendants in the case had a “habit of violence and the oppression and humiliation” of others. Simba La Rue was described as “animated by blind and uncontrolled violence”, while Baby Gang as the one who incited the others, “completely out of control”, “raged” one of the two victims with a beating in a “hedge ”.
