One of two men accused of making a rap video that threatens Pittsburgh police has been arraigned and is scheduled for a court hearing.

Police charged Rashee Beasley, 21, of Garfield, and Jamal Knox, 18, of East Liberty with making terroristic threats, witness intimidation and related crimes. Beasley was arraigned on the charges early Wednesday, online court records show. A hearing is scheduled for Thursday.

Knox has not been apprehended.

The video names officers who patrol Highland Park Zone 5. Lyrics include “Like poplawski im strapped nasty” and “lets kill these cops cause they aint doing us no good,” police said.
