Law enforcement officers in Ohio have filed a lawsuit against rapper Afroman alleging that he invaded their privacy by using images of them raiding his house.Afroman, whose real name is Joseph Foreman, had his house raided in August 2022 by officers with the Adam’s County Sheriff’s Office. The officers were acting on a warrant asserting probable cause for narcotics being stored and kidnappings taking place on the property. No evidence of criminal activity was found on the property and no charges were filed.Foreman recorded the raid on a series of security cameras on his property and inside his house.Video footage shows police ramming down his door, searching his wardrobe, opening CD cases, and at one point briefly glancing at a lemon pound cake on his counter — a moment repeatedly referenced by Foreman in subsequent songs.He later used the footage of officers searching his home in music videos mocking the situation and questioning the raid.“I asked myself, as a powerless Black man in America, what can I do to the cops that kicked my door in, tried to kill me in front of my kids, stole my money and disconnected my cameras?” Foreman told NPR in an interview.

Pacific Overtures (★★★★☆) sounds doubly refreshing to ears eager to venture somewhere less familiar in Sondheim-land.The score, with music and lyrics by Sondheim, also simply sounds lovely filling the openness of director Ethan Heard’s in-the-round staging, grazing the graceful, watercolor-hued screens set designer Chika Shimizu has wrapped around the Max Theatre.
