Lawrence White (born 16 December 1974), better known by his stage name 40 Glocc, is an American rapper from Colton, California. White was born in Galveston, Texas, and moved with his mother to various locations in California. He began rapping with friends, and formed the group Zoo Crew in Colton. The group released their debut album, Migrate Adapt or Die, in 1998.
White signed a deal with Empire Musicwerks in the early 2000s, and released his debut solo album, The Jakal, in 2003. His manager, who also managed Mobb Deep while the group was on G-Unit Records, assisted White in signing with the group's imprint label, Infamous Records, however he did not release any material while on the label. In 2012, he released his second solo album, New World Agenda.
White has been subject to legal problems throughout his career. In 1996, he was arrested following a shootout with police outside the Arbor Terrace apartment complex in Colton, and was charged with attempted murder of a police officer. In 2010, a California judge ruled that the Colton City Crips, which White is a member of, would be banned from congregating near the Arbor Terrace complex. In January 2011, White was arrested after loitering a block away from the Arbor Terrace complex, and a loaded 9mm handgun was found in his car. However, the charges were ultimately dropped due to lack of evidence. Later that same year, in October, White was arrested in las Vegas and charged with three counts of domestic battery by strangulation and coercion with force. White allegedly hit his girlfriend several times, and choked her to the point she could not breathe. While he was asleep, she called the police, who arrested White as he was trying to flee his home. The woman claims White had been assaulting her for over a year, but was afraid to contact police because she thought she might be killed. White has also been involved in multiple altercations with fellow rappers, including The Game and Plies.
