A rapper has been arrested on a open murder charge after police listened to one of his songs.
Kenjuan McDaniel, whose rapper name is The Biggest Finn 4800, was taken into custody at the end of August.
Randall Wallace was gunned down on September 18 two years ago and authorities have been hunting for his killer ever since.
The victim was fatally shot in the head at an apartment complex and witnesses recall seeing a Black male running from the area after the gun was fired.
CNN says McDaniel's arrest warrant has revealed that he is a person of interest in the case because has been connected to a vehicle that matched the description of the one involved in the shooting.
But not only that, prosecutors have pointed to a song and music video released by McDaniel that could suggest he was part of the crime.
It wasn't until July this year that a detective stumbled across the track and started to do some digging.
The warrant said: "Detectives noted the music video bore a sufficient level of similarity to the details of the murder.
"This includes the fact, that Kenjuan confessed to the murder in his lyrics.
"Details provided by Kenjuan in his music video were not released to the public and would not be common knowledge."
The song is called 'Fadee Free' and allegedly alludes to the murder.
It has lyrics like 'I be the reason why he’s dead, we still taunt him when he die, not the reason he’s dead, so celebrate the reason why his momma cry'.
Biggest Finn 4800 also raps: "Parked the car, double back on feet, the smartest way to slide, drove in, double lock yo man, make sure you get yo bod."
Police say those details weren't released to the public and bear a striking resemblance to how they believe the murder happened.
The Washington Post said the music video also had moments 'consistent with evidence at the scene'.
CNN says McDaniel is being held on a bail of $1 million and his next hearing is set for September 14.
The open murder charge means it will soon be determined if he will face first-degree, second-degree murder, or voluntary or involuntary manslaughter.
First-degree murder carries a potential sentence of 50 years in prison or the death penalty.
