SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury Police officials said they have been investigation members of a group called "DDE" prior to the release of a violent music video on Youtube earlier this month. The video, which features guns and potential drug use, was shot and filmed in the Doverdale community of Salisbury.
The name of the video posted is called "Jungle" and throughout the video there are depictions of guns and violence along with lyrics like "we kickin' in your front door." But this was not the first video uploaded by the group DDE. Others show members rapping at the Doverdale playground and another time in a recording studio but those videos to have the same amount of violence as "Jungle." Police said they have been able to identify everyone in the video.
"We have identified all of those individuals so they are no longer anonymous to law enforcement. And certainly, anybody that sees the video in the community will recognize them as well and taking away their anonymity is so important to success here," said Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan.
State's Attorney Matt Maciarello also raised some concerns over some of the images in the video.
"This right here is baking soda. Ok, they are not baking cookies. Baking soda is used in the production and modification of narcotics, cocaine in particular. It is used as a cutting agent to make crack cocaine so they are showing you what they're into," said Maciarello.
Police say a few of the people in the video have prior criminal records but those with records were not caught holding a gun on camera in the video.
