Drill MC Rico Racks banned from rapping certain words

The likes of "bandoe", "connect" and "whipping" are off-limits for five years...

Rico Racks has been banned from using certain words in his music.

Eight months on from YouTube removing over 100 drill videos from its site following a request by London's Metropolitan Police, the London MC has been legally restricted from using words including "bandoe", “connect”, "whipping" and "trapping" in his music for five years.

The ruling stems from a Criminal Behaviour Order that the rapper picked up after being jailed for three years on drug charges.

Earlier this year, London rappers Skengado and AM were sentenced to nine months in prison.
