When Rodney was confronted by the police officer for speeding and driving recklessly,he had 2 choices. 1)Either get out of the vehicle and surrender to the police officers or 2)Confront the officers. He decided to "Keep it real" so he advances the officer,unknowing that the officers would tazer him and beat him to the ground. His actions leading up to the "LA Riots" Rodney is a perfect example of "Keepin it Real" but its also a good example of "When keepin it real goes wrong"
