Julio Foolio has had his fair share of run-ins with law enforcement and with snitching being a topic of discussion within rap, he showed how he believes rhymers should handle the interrogation room.
Footage emerged of Foolio — born Charles Jones — in custody after being apprehended for alleged excessive window tint and felony fleeing in an April 2022 traffic stop.
Homicide detectives then questioned the Jacksonville rapper about the murder of his friend, Mitch, who was killed in January 2022. A detective asked if Foolio felt his music played a role in the violence around him.
“It’s a blessing and a curse,” Foolio said. “You can’t just say it’s my music that’s why somebody died. No, a song can’t make no n-gga do nothing, bro.”
The part of the three-hour interrogation featuring Foolio by himself singing a cappella to Rod Wave’s “Dark Clouds” went viral on social media. The 24-year-old reposted the clip and put out a PSA for the snitching in rap to end.
“I can never go out bad i see alot of rappers goin out bad tellin etc ion kno nothin @rodwave shoulda had me on the remix I AM NOT @6ix9ine,” he declared. “#StopSnitchin.”
G Herbo added in the comment section: “Folks so shit so fucking funny to me man wtf!”

“Dark Clouds” landed as the closer on Rod Wave’s 2020 Pray 4 Love album, although Foolio’s rendition changed up some of the lyrics.
In this case, Julio Foolio eventually pleaded no contest to tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony and was sentenced to six months of probation.
While 6ix9ine didn’t respond to Foolio, he made headlines over the weekend while flexing a million dollars in cash on a private flight and showed his haters the exact landing time he’d be touching down in New Jersey.
“On my way to New York. I got a million dollars on me and on my mother I’m by myself here’s what the jet lady texted me I copy and pasted it,” he wrote. “Arriving:6:45PM. Airport: signature flight. 1 Airport Rd, Morristown, NJ 07960. Well I’m with the kid who recorded this video but he’s like 5’4 140 solid I swear.”
