Atlanta rap star Playboi Carti is reportedly in some serious legal trouble. This week, Georgia law enforcement arrested him on multiple charges following a traffic stop.
According to reports, the bust went down Thursday. Cops hit Carti with drug and traffic charges. Cops pulled him over because of an expired tag and discovered various illegal items inside his Lamborghini.
The rapper, whose real name is Jordan Carter, was initially stopped for an expired tag, Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill said Friday in a news release. Inside the car, deputies discovered 12 bags of marijuana, three guns, Xanax, codeine and oxycodone, authorities said. Another man, 21-year-old Jaylan Tucker, was arrested with Carter. Both were taken to the Clayton County Jail. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Playboi didn’t spend too much time with the Georgia cops. Carti was reportedly released Friday morning after posting bond, as confirmed by close friend and photographer Gunner Stahl.
“Carti is at home. Let’s stop the ‘free stuff,’ thanks.”
Wait, There’s More
After a fan recently asked him to release his third studio album Whole Lotta Red during the hectic coronavirus lockdown, the elusive hip-hop entertainer caved in and addressed the situation.
“I never left. Hey. Stay with me. I owe you the world and I know it. I love you and everyone. And my universe.”
