West Coast rapper YG had an unexpected run-in with law enforcement this week. New reports claim the hip-hop star landed behind bars on a robbery charge in Las Vegas.
According to reports, YG appeared in a Sin City court Thursday (July 12) after having a warrant issued for his arrest. The hip-hop artist turned himself in on a felony robbery charge but then posted $20,000 bail.
Vegas police tell us … the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We’re told the guy told YG he’s not a real celeb … and casino’s surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck. We’re told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant — valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 — before taking off. (TMZ)
A few days ago, YG shared a dope in-studio pic of himself and New York rapper A$AP Rocky.

Last month, YG finally announced an early August release date for his upcoming Stay Dangerous album.
The highly-anticipated solo effort will be his first studio effort in two years.
Stay Dangerous is YG’s first album since 2016’s Still Brazy. Earlier this year he shared the single “Suu Whoop.”. He was also a featured artist on 2 Chainz’s EP The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It and Nipsey Hussle’s album Victory Lap. (The FADER)
