DISCLAIMER: GRAPHIC IMAGES22-year-old Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III has identified a potentially interesting person for filming the 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois.

An FBI wanted poster depicts Robert E. Crimo III as a thin white man with brown eyes and neck-length brown hair, weighing 120 pounds. The poster also describes his tattoos: “four crossed out tally marks on his right cheek, red roses and green leaves on his neck, and cursive writing above his left eyebrow.”

The poster describes him as “armed and dangerous”.

Crimo is also known as “Wake Up The Rapper”.

IMDB describes Crimo as a “six-foot hip-hop phenom” who was born on September 20, 2000. “He is the middle child of three and of Italian descent.”

Crimo started uploading his music to the internet when he was 11, but first gained traction with his 2016 track “By The Pond” featuring Atlas, according to IMDB. His estimated net worth is “$100,000”.

Crimo is the son of Bob Crimo, president of Bob’s Pantry & Deli in Highland Park. According to his Facebook account, the father ran for mayor of Highland Park in 2020.

The rapper released a cryptic track titled “Are You Awake” on October 15, 2021. The track seems to suggest that Crimo was planning a defining act beyond his ability to stop. The video includes drawings of a man pointing a gun at another person.

The video also includes an image of a newspaper clipping about Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated President John F. Kennedy, and another image of a shot victim with blood squirting from the body.

“Like a sleepwalker, I’m unable to stop and think,” he says in the track. “My actions will be valiant and my thinking is useless. I know what I must do, I know what is in it, not only for me, but for everyone else.”

“There is no past or future, just the present,” he adds. “It’s more abstract than I can imagine. I can feel the atmosphere pushing me. It’s unstoppable, like a wave pulling me in, I can’t breathe without it.”

“I have to go now, I just have to. It’s my destiny, everything led up to this,” Crimo said. “Nothing can stop me, not even myself. Is there such a thing as free will, or was it planned, like a cosmic recipe?”

“That’s what I was waiting for in the back of my head, ready to be woken up. That’s what I was sent here to do, like a sleepwalker,” he adds.
