YouTube has removed 130 rap videos calling for violence and criminal acts, at the request of the London police, after hundreds of violent incidents in the last two years,

According to the Business Insider, a police request in London came to delete videos, especially rap music, after a local rap group was convicted after they abducted a 16-year-old boy, tortured him and demanded ransom money from his parents.

A review of a number of police reports revealed that there were many gangs of rap singers and 18 of them had already been sentenced to prison.

Police investigator said they are currently tracking more than 2,000 music videos in their database, and have filed requests for the initial removal of 154 rap videos from YouTube, and only 130 videos have been removed.
