Bermudian gangs are posting hip-hop ‘diss’ tracks online to taunt and intimidate one another, the Bermuda Police Service has confirmed.

Assistant Commissioner Martin Weekes revealed that officers were assessing any potential connection between the YouTube videos, rising gang tensions and the recent shootings.

“The videos show disturbing images with equally disturbing and distasteful lyrics,” he said.

“We are investigating these videos and working with the Department of Public Prosecutions’ Office to determine if any offences have been committed in the production and distribution of these videos.”

Anyone with any information on these videos can call the BPS on 295-0011 or the Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
