Woman Accuses Towkio & Chance The Rapper’s Drummer Of Sexual Assault
by Derêka K. Bennett
According to the woman, identified as @pppermint, Towkio raped her in February 2016 after inviting her to his Wiker Park apartment in Chicago. She alleges that the rapper pressured her into sex and when she attempted to stop him, he continued to penetrate her.
“I showed up and I had absolutely no intention on sleeping with him,” she begins in a series of tweets. “I had a yeast infection and I knew that if I had engaged in intercourse it would be excruciatingly painful for me […] He coerced me into having sex with him […] I said no, at least, five times. It got to the point where he stood up and literally was pulling my arms to lead me into his bedroom. I figured, if I had sex with him he would stop pressuring me.”
She then adds: “Eventually, I gave in to his coerciveness. We started to have sex and after about 10 minutes, it was extremely painful. I was so scared. I could not take the pain anymore of him penetrating my body […] I said to him, ‘Preston, can we please stop? It’s starting to really hurt’… and he replied, ‘No, I didn’t cum yet.'”
She says that she was “paralyzed with fear” and had to find the strength to push him off of her. The next day, the accuser went to a Planned Parenthood clinic where she revealed to a nurse that she was raped.”
“After the assault, I spiraled into a deep and dark depression,” she tweeted. “I am finally getting to a place where my healing is my main priority and I hope that my testimony can aid in bringing other victims forward.”
The accusers tweets were quickly met with support from other users, including someone who pointed out that Chance The Rapper tends to “surround” himself with accused abusers, seeing that he once collaborated with Towkio. This then opened up the door for @pppermint to detail an encounter that she had with Chance’s drummer Stix.
She reveals that he sexually assaulted her in 2011 after her prom: ” He pushed me in a room, closed the door, turned off the light & put his hands down my pants. I rejected his sexual advances and immediately left the room.
Stix later saw her tweets and immediately messaged her an apology along with the ‘right’ story that actually took place:
