Rapper YG has been Arrested And Booked for Robbery on Friday.
Roots from the Law enforcement tells TMZ that L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the rapper’s San Fernando Valley home around 4 a.m. with a search and arrest warrant related to a robbery case.
The Compton MC is currently in custody and is being transported to a jail to be booked for robbery. Back in July YG’s vehicle was involved in a high-speed chase, which Also ended in a deadly shootout. Police were called to apprehend a DUI suspect in his Escalade. While they were chasing the suspect, someone in the SUV allegedly opened fire, killing a 65-year-old man on a bike.
YG told TMZ, “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood,” he said “I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”
It’s unclear if the Friday morning raid is related to that case. A couple weeks after the shooting, a Hollywood Hills home leased by YG was raided and at least one person was arrested for a weapons charge. YG was not present during that raid.
YG is slated to perform during a tribute to Nipsey Hussle at the Grammys on Sunday. It’s unclear if this will affect the performance.
Following his arrest, his fellow rapper The Game tweeted: “Funny how @YG gets arrested the weekend of the Grammy’s when he’s supposed to hit the stage in Nip’s honor. #LAPDtheBiggestGangHere.”
