The drug-trafficking trial of identical-twin rappers Kane and Abel,
originally scheduled to begin Monday (Aug. 30), has been reset for Nov.
15, according to the clerk's office at the U.S. District Court in New
Orleans. District Court Judge Farah S. Vance granted the rappers' motion
to continue the case earlier this month, rescheduling the trial date and
assigning them a Nov. 4 pretrial conference hearing. The 22-year-old MCs
(born David and Daniel Garcia) pleaded not guilty in May to charges of
conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute. They claim
prosecutors indicted them because they didn't offer any information that
would incriminate No Limit label chief Master P. "A lot of the
powers that be ... can't accept the fact that these young black men with
gold teeth rapping about [ghetto life] are actually running legitimate
multimillion-dollar businesses," Abel said Friday.
