Rep. John Conyers announced his retirement on Tuesday following a series of sexual harassment allegations, and endorsed his son to succeed him.

Some of his songs included lyrics like, "My n***as turn grams into grands" and "Ay f**k making a living bro, I'm trying to make history/So picture me letting the news nit-pick at me".

John Conyers III, a Detroit hedge fund manager possibly contending for his father's vacant Congress seat, was cuffed at a Los Angeles residence on February 15, according to case paperwork obtained by the Daily News.

The victim then said Conyers III "body slammed her on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her".

The would-be congressman claimed that she was the one who had tried to stab him and was only cut in the ensuing struggle for the knife.

Speaking to reporters last week after the allegations against his father emerged, Conyers III said, "With sexual assault, women are to be believed".

On Tuesday the elder Conyers officially resigned from Congress after being dogged by complaints of sexual misconduct. A district attorney's charge evaluation sheet obtained by Local 4 shows John Conyers III was involved in a violent domestic dispute with his live-in girlfriend.

The woman claims he then chased her into her kitchen where she grabbed a 10-inch knife to protect herself, ordering him to leave the house.

The woman told authorities the incident began when he accused her of cheating on him after checking her computer.

Conyers did not respond to messages sent to his social media pages Wednesday night and the Los Angeles attorney who represented him in the criminal case didn't immediately comment.

The only injury to Conyers' girlfriend was a small stab wound to her lower bicep, the network reported.

Conyers III is credited with writing a handful of articles for the Huffington Post with a bio that says he spends time between Detroit and Los Angeles.

Police say that Conyers III was taken into custody and released the same day in lieu of $50,000 bond, NBC reports.

"I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers III, who, incidentally, I endorse to replace me in my seat in Congress", the congressman said in an interview on Detroit radio station WPZR.

John Conyers III has lived at his parents' house in Detroit over the years and has also lived in Los Angeles.
