A New York firefighter has apparently had a successful career performing as a rap artist on his downtime, the New York Post reported.

FDNY fire captain Kaseem Ryan, 44, has released numerous songs under the stage-name Ka, and some of those songs include derogatory references to police officers.
The lyrics in one of the songs include the lines, “F- -k them cops and swats with night vision. I see your traps and your plots to dead us, y’all rolling with Kojaks, n- - -a, I got Berettas.”
Some within the NYPD, understandably, aren't amused.
