Hip Hop Cop

Posted: Updated:
Irvington, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Bill is chasing a story about a hip-hop cop from Irvington.  Detective Maurice Gattison is sparking a lot of controversy with his favorite past time—rapping. Some critics feel like he should be suspended or fired because certain hip-hop lyrics and messages are not something that a police office should be sending to the community. 

Bill met up with Gattison on the set of his music video in Newark, New Jersey where Gattison claims he is not trying to offend anyone, just simply be creative.  Is he holding up the standard of police officers? Or is this freedom speech? He claims he is doing this on his own time and he will consider being more careful with his lyrics going forward that may be offensive to the public. His latest song coming out is a tribute to Trayvon martin.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.
