A 16-year-old rapper who shot and wounded an NYPD cop and posted bond using record deal money is back in jail for violating the terms of his probation.
New York City residents are breathing a sigh of relief now that Camrin Williams is back in custody.
Williams, who goes by the rap name C Blu, was arrested Jan. 18 after allegedly shooting and wounding a cop during a scuffle in the Bronx.

The aspiring rapper was also wounded by the same bullet that struck the officer. They were treated and released from a hospital.
The teenager was booked into the Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn after he was released from the hospital.
NYPD officials expressed outrage after a liberal judge set Williams' bond at $250,000.
Williams allegedly used advance money from his recording deal with Interscope Records to pay the $250,000 bond.
At the time, his attorney Dawn Florio said, "Camrin has been released and will be back to his regular productive life of focusing on schoolwork and his music career.
However, Williams was back at the Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn on Thursday after violating his probation from a 2020 gun possession case.
"We're glad that a cop-shooter is back off the street, but this revolving door for a repeat gun offender makes no sense whatsoever," Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch said.
He added: "It should be clear to every New Yorker that our justice system is broken in many places. Our lawmakers need to prioritize fixing it above everything else."
