When a rapper known as Maine Musik threatened Donald Trump in a now viral video, he revealed something he likely did not intend. The guns Demarcus Davis waved around in the Trump death threat video were stolen from a former Sons of Guns reality television star’s store.
In the Donald Trump death threat video, the Louisiana rapper warns the GOP presidential candidate not to limit access to food stamps, WBRZ reports.
When Joe Meaux just happened to click on a “Rapper Threatens Trump” headline link a few weeks ago, he was shocked to see guns stolen from his Meaux Guns and Ammo store in Baton Rouge, Fox News reports. The customized weapons showcased in the anti-Trump video were distinctive enough for Meaux to immediately realize they were his and call the police.
“As I’m watching it, I’m thinking these guns are very recognizable,” the Meaux Guns and Ammo owner said. “As I watched more, I realized that they were very familiar. They were stolen from me last year.”
Meaux said the gun thieves bored into the side of his shop after the store was closed and stole some of his custom firearms.
“My guns are all very recognizable, we do a lot of custom work. There was one AK-47 copy built from a.22 I identified. Everything from the optic to the way the sling was placed was all very identifiable,” the Sons of Guns star added.

When Joe Meaux called the police to tell them about the Maine Musik Donald Trump death threat video and the stolen guns, the law enforcement officers were already one step ahead of him. The Secret Service had already been alerted to the video posted by the 22-year-old Louisiana rapper to his Instagram account, which has 53,000 followers.
Meaux had run the Red Jacket Firearms store which was featured on the Discovery channel’s Sons of Guns. The show was abruptly cancelled after its co-owner, Will Hayden, was arrested and charged with raping a minor in 2014.
The Secret Service agents did not realize the guns in the Demarcus Davis video were stolen when they launched their investigation into the death threat made against the Republican presidential nominee.
Here’s an excerpt from the Maine Musik death threat against Donald Trump.
“I really want to go to war with Donald Trump because Donald Trump is tryin’ to take food stamps from my momma and that’s all the [expletive] she got. Let Donald Trump know it’s up over here. We want war; we’re going to declare war.”
The Louisiana rapper also made references to ISIS in the latter parts of the Donald Trump death threat video.
“I ain’t worried about ISIS. They just called me and want me to f**k with them now. You heard me, we’ve got them drums and grenades but I’m scared to throw them,” Davis said.
The Louisiana rapper was arrested on June 3 when he ran a stop sign in Baton Rouge. The law enforcement officers were able to hold him on an outstanding warrant.
Maine Musik was arrested on a drug-related charge and multiple weapons charges. The rapper was able to post the $23,000 bond levied by the judge shortly after his arrest. Although the stolen guns in his possession may stem from the robbery of the Sons of Guns reality show star’s Baton Rouge shop, Davis has not reportedly been charged in the “blitz” theft which took place last summer. Three other suspects are already facing charges for the gun store robbery.
The guns shown in Maine Musik’s Donald Trump death threat video were not the only possibly stolen guns in the rapper’s possession. Photos still visible on Davis’ Facebook account reportedly included images of a customized Ruger 10/22 Krinker Plinker taken from the Baton Rouge store.
“Many of the items have been recovered, but the matter is still under investigation so when that is completed we will hopefully get them back,” Meaux added. “But the most important thing is that they are off the streets now.”

Earlier this week, Demarcus Davis reportedly posted on Instagram stating he had traded in stolen guns for a knife. Even though he is still under investigation by the Secret Service, the rapper still uttered an ominous message for Donald Trump.
“F**k Donald Trump. No more guns… It’s our summer 16, b****,” Maine Musik said.
