While accountants' advice may not always be popular, one rapper across the pond appeared to be more upset than your average client. 

In unfortunate attempt to play up to his nickname, Miami based hip-hop artist Gunplay pulled a firearm on his accountant in a fit of rage last April. 

As our sister website AccountingWEB.com repoted, the entire incident was caught on CCTV with the resulting video becoming an internet sensation. 

In the clip, Gunplay looks calm until his accountant shows a document that appears to anger the rapper, who corners the accountant behind his desk and pulls a gun on him. 

The rapper, whose real name is a the more modest Richard Morales Jr, also allegedly stole a mobile phone and a gold chain during the incident. 

He handed himself into Miami-Dade police earlier this week, following the advice of his attorneys. He could face a life sentence if charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault with a firearm. 

  • History spot This week also saw a notable tax/crime anniversary:

Al "Scarface" Capone was sentenced to 11 years in prison for tax evasion 81 years ago this week. Through the 1920s and 30s, Capone ran a prohibition-era crime syndicate, including gambling, alcohol and prostitution. He became Chicago's crime kingpin by wiping out competitors through gangland battles and slayings, including the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929. Despite multiple attempts by the police and a team of officers named "The Untouchables" (because they couldn't be corrupted), it took until 1931 to convict Capone on tax evasion charges. He got out of jail in 1939 for good behavior, but he was plagued by health problems until his death in 1947 at the age of 48.
