A YoungBloodz's Sean P representative has come forward to address the rapper's recent arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta.
According to Cornerstone Entertainment co-owner Montez Harris, the police are largely to blame for his arrest.
"The Atlanta Police are totally to blame for the incident witnesses say, and that the whole thing could have easily been resolved with a brief conversation," Harris, co-owner of Sean P's Cornerstore Ent., said. ""[Sean P] headed to the V.I.P., as agreed upon per the establishment's management, only to be harassed by the incompetent club security about having a access ban to that particular area. Shortly after that, the Atlanta Police officers on-hand came storming into the fray as if someone had been shot, screaming orders without evaluating the scene and ascertaining what the problem was...One of the police officers attempting to choke Sean P from behind like a coward, while he was trying to explain the situation...Then lying about it, stating that Sean P hit him in the mouth, which is a blatant lie. The same officer also threatened to shoot Sean P's personal bodyguard, who he later said he knew was unarmed because he was checked by club security at the club's front door." (Baller Status)

The rapper is known for making a strong buzz alongside his partner in rhymes, J-Bo.
While they honed their skills and showcased their talent for various record labels, opening the door for the Attic crew to get noticed, it took only one meeting with LaFace A&R executive PA to sign the YoungBloodZ duo. The 1999 album Against da Grain was their full-length debut. Three years later, the highly regarded Drankin' Patnaz found the group on Arista while 2005's Ev'rybody Know Me returned the duo to LaFace. (All Music)
