NYC rapper charged with shooting NYPD cop shows off guns, boasts in YouTube videos

An up-and-coming New York City rapper accused of shooting a cop in the Bronx, shows off multiple weapons in his music videos and threatens rivals he won’t miss if he decides to open fire.

The YouTube page of baby-faced 16-year-old Camrin Williams – better known in the Bronx drill rap scene as C Blu – has some 21,700 subscribers where fans can catch a glimpse of the bombastic and boastful teen flaunting massive amounts of money and guns, even while sitting in a car with a friend.

In one clip posted in OctoberWilliams previewed a new song, “Blu Bop,” as he showed off a gun tucked into his waistband and threatening opponents looking for him to “come for me.” He then jumps into the passenger seat of a car as an alleged “murderer” behind the steering wheels, the video shows.

“You know I’m not bluffing, I dare you to try me,” boasted C Blu in the clip, which had been viewed nearly 30,000 times since Friday.

Camrin Williams, who is accused of shooting an NYPD officer, has a YouTube page where he regularly shows off guns and huge amounts of money.

In another song called “No Ozone Part 2,Williams and fellow up-and-coming rapper Set Da Trend throw up gang signs, showing their clear affiliation with the Crips, while promising to knock down anyone they cross.

“I bought a new Glock, it came with a beam,” raps C Blu, referring to a pistol equipped with a sight. “No, I can’t miss, I only shoot greens.”

The pair swap verses as several others jump furiously into the background, and C Blu warns potential challengers not to cross him, while staying armed and ready.

Camrin Williams has been released on bail on his gun violence charge after shooting a cop in the Bronx.

“These N—s are plotting to take over my life,” he raps before putting up a “C” sign showing his allegiance to the infamous street gang. “Trend, pass me the torch — let’s go light it.”

In ‘A Christmas Carol’, the teenage rapper shows off his holiday cheer by sparking what appears to be a major blunt and scattering a huge pile of cash on the city streets.

“Don’t forget what I did on the street,” C Blu raps at one point. Seconds later, he promised to take opponents out of their ‘misery’, the video shows.

So C blue took his talents to Times Square to record a video for a song called “Champions”, featuring himself and rapper Wan Billz. The pair appear to be bluntly puffing as crowds of people surround them spitting barbs, throwing up apparent gang signs and threatening to shoot rivals as they shoot the clip in the crowded tourist mecca.

“Let go of a shot and they start to panic,” raps C Blu before quickly mimicking gunfire. “They disappear.”

Williams, meanwhile, remains free Friday after posting a $250,000 bond. He had previously been taken into custody at a Brooklyn juvenile detention center on charges of firearms and assault in the Jan. 18 shooting of an NYPD police officer in Belmont.

A Bronx Supreme Court judge ruled Williams eligibility for bail, rocking NYPD union officials over his “outrageous” release.

“This person chose to carry illegal weapons twice,” said Patrick Lynch, police president of the NYPD’s Benevolent Association. “He chose to fight a New York police officer and shoot him. There’s no reason to believe he won’t do exactly the same when he’s out on the street tonight.”

Williams’ attorney, Dawn Florio, said the rapper is not a violent person and the image is just his “rap character.”

Williams, who already had a gun-possession arrest to his name in 2020, was given probation in the case just a month before his last clash with the law.

Police said Williams was arrested earlier this month for refusing to take his hands out of his pockets, leading to a scuffle with police that led to him punching NYPD officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg and injuring himself in the groin.

Bronx prosecutors wanted Williams to be held without bail, but Judge Denis Boyle disagreed.

Williams declined to comment to a Post reporter after he walked out on Thursday. But his lawyer told The Post Friday that his tough image is just an act.

“That’s just his rapper sonage,” attorney Dawn Florio said. ‘That’s selling records. He’s not a violent person.”

The rapper signed a deal with an Interscope Records subsidiary in November, according to Florio, who declined to reveal how much he received. She denied previous reports that Williams had used part of his advance to get out of prison, claiming the money was paid for by a relative who works as a licensed nurse.

“He wants to get a college education and become a biochemist,” Florio told The Post. “He definitely wants to pursue music, but he wants to continue his education by going to college.”

Williams is now homeschooled, Florio said.

The rapper planned to use an advance on his contract to pay the $15,000 in cash needed to secure his bail, a law enforcement source told The Post last week.

in a interview earlier this month, Williams describes his life growing up in the Bronx before turning his attention to the rap game.

“It was not that bad, I got what I needed, I got what I wanted,” said C Blu of his upbringing in the ward. “If I wanted more, I’d take it.”

The Bronx’s reputation for paved streets is a bit of an exaggeration, the rapper claimed, but said people should definitely be wary of the neighborhood. However, he told an interviewer that he also continues to hit the books.

Dawn Florio says the rapper plans to attend college.

“I’m still in school,” C Blu said. “Facts. You have to be smart and s–t.”

With an apparently blunt marijuana in hand, C Blu said he wants to go to university to become a biochemist.

“You definitely have to be smart too,” the rapper continued, claiming he was a little misunderstood. “Since we just listen to the music, they only see the outside of us – they don’t really know what we’re like in the real world and they like that. We joke, n—s don’t know the real us.”
