Kool G Rap Gets Charged With "Shopping While Black"

Hip-hop legend Kool G Rap was charged with stealing a pair of shoes.
According to TMZ, the charge was dropped and Kool G Rap claims it all happened because he's black.
A Finish Line store employee accused him of jacking a pair of Nike LeBron 15s worth about $185.
The employee described a thief in the mall as a black male in his 40s. 
While Kool G Rap was shopping at the same mall that day, he was tracked down by an employee who called the cops on him. 
KGR was hit with a misdemeanor theft. His lawyers say the cops never reviewed the store's surveillance video and if they did, they would've seen KGR never went into the store.
Prosecutors dropped the case but KGR and his legal team are gearing up for a massive lawsuit against Finish Line.
