There's no such thing as bad publicity, right?
One rapper in London tested that theory in an extreme way over the weekend.
London-based rapper Big Tobz landed himself in hot water when he used footage of a "terror incident" to promote his new mixtape on social media.
Tobz uploaded two separate videos featuring footage of the stabbing at the Leytonstone tube station on Saturday night to his Twitter page.
The rapper had witnessed the stabbing occur and tweeted about the attack immediately afterwards.
WARNING: These videos contain sensitive footage.
"Part 1" of the series of tweets was a video showcasing a pool of blood on the floor of the station.

"Part 2" was also of the blood but featured a confrontation between law authorities and another man.
However, "Part 3" was not footage related to the stabbing incident, but instead a video of the rapper's debut single "Uno My Style."
It seemed the rapper was on a quest for his newest mixtape to be fire.
When journalists reached out to Big Tobz about his shocking footage of the stabbing, he only responded with links to his song, according to The Independent, which posted a screenshot of a now-deleted tweet.
The rapper was met with both criticism and praise from other Twitter users for his marketing strategy.
@BigTobzsf it's really sad that you've taken an opportunity as serious as this to promote your song! May God forgive you.
