(John Del Signore) A group of NYPD officers allegedly forced a man to rap for his own freedom. According to a lawsuit filed against the department and obtained by the Post, 28-year-old Quinshon Singles was handcuffed in the Brooklyn apartment of a friend after police entered the home without a warrant. “The defendant officers then told the plaintiff Quinshon Shingles to show them some 'spits and bars,' specifically to perform a rap song, and that if he was ‘hot’ they would let him go," the lawsuit states. Singles says he performed, and police took off the handcuffs.

The lawsuit alleges that no contraband was found in the search, and that at least one of the officers who entered the apartment was being investigated for other illegal searches.
