US rap group in spotlight after member charged with rioting

Southern Slaves group in Miami labelled 'extremists' after member accused of vandalising police cars.

    For decades rap music has turned the spotlight on police brutality.

    Many of the genre's stars are household names today, and several have had problems with the authorities.

    Now an aspiring group of rappers in the US city of Miami have been labelled "extremists," after one of their members was arrested and charged with inciting a riot.

    The group members say they are just fighting for justice.
