CORRECTS SPELLING FROM HERRON TO HERNDON In this Sept. 28, 1994 photo, Ronald Herron, 12, stands in the doorway of the Gowanus Houses in New York. Now 32 and sometimes known as the Rapper “Ra Diggs,” Herndon is accused by prosecutors as the ruthless leader of a violent drug gang, and faces a federal murder trial in New York. The government and defense are locked in a debate whether Herndon’s music and videos are evidence of real crimes committed by one of the city's highest ranking Bloods or are constitutionally protected, and inadmissible, expressions of free speech that his lawyers have likened to Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."
