As they say in the classics, the plot thickens. And thicken it has, with an explosive new development in the ‘Informant 3838’ case, concerning a former Melbourne defence barrister turned informant.According to documents freshly leaked to The Obiter, Informant 3838 didn’t simply report on gangland crime in Victoria. The informant went one step further - and gave the key information that led to the arrest of British-cum-American rapper, 21 Savage.
It appears that alongside her work representing Melbourne’s peak crime syndicates, Informant 3838 was also the go-to legal advisor to Mr Savage and many other ‘Atlanta’-based rappers on issues such copyright, immigration and how often to include background vocals that go ‘straight up,’ ‘skrrt’ or the ever-reliable, ‘gang gang.’
Indeed, Informant 3838 herself appeared as backing vocals on several of Mr Savage’s tracks, intermittently whooping and hollering.
When approached by the Victorian Police to inform on her gangland clients, it seemed only natural that the next step would be to act as an Informant for the US Immigration and Customs department. This is an obvious choice, considering the organisations’ equal global standing.
As a police informant, Informant 3838 will be entitled to a range of special privileges, not least of all hearing 21 Savage’s mixtapes one week before they are officially released.
When approached for a comment, Mr Savage was incensed, exclaiming ‘bugger’, ‘cor blimey’, pish posh’, ‘bleedin’ ‘ell’, ‘Brexit’, ‘Jeremy Corbyn’, ‘Keira Knightley, ‘bad teeth’, ‘tea’, ‘double decker bus’, ‘colonialism’ and then stormed out with a fiery ‘toodaloo’.
Returning for one last comment, Mr Savage remarked ‘this is complete codswallop, and I will not have my honour besmirched in such an uncouth manner. Cheerio!’
Skipping away, whistling ‘God Save The Queen,’ we finally knew the right decision had been made.
Some more to come.
