Shingles alleged that cops entered an apartment without a warrant, handcuffed him — and then ordered him to rap for his release.

An aspiring rapper who claimed he was forced by NYPD cops to sing a rap song before they’d let him go has gotten the last word, the Daily News has learned.

Quinshon Shingles, whose stage name is Sauce Da Boss, will pocket $7,500 in a settlement of his federal lawsuit against NYPD cops David Grieco and Joseph Patton of the 75th Precinct in Brooklyn, according to a source.

Shingles, 27, alleged that cops barged into an apartment without a warrant to question another man. The cops handcuffed Shingles and ordered him to bust out some “spits and bars” — and if they thought his rhyming was “hot” they would release him, according to the suit. The apartment’s tenant, Donyale Kitchens, also accepted a $4,000 settlement.

Shingles told The News last year that he only rapped for about a minute to please the cops, but felt humiliated by the incident.

Police Officer Grieco and Patton, now a detective, had tricked the building’s super to give them a duplicate set of keys so they could get into the apartment, the suit alleged.
