West Coast rapper YG has stepped forward to confirm buzz and reports about landing in handcuffs this week in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles native has stepped up with a snarky message.
YG went to Twitter Friday (July 13) with a since-deleted confirmation announcing he posted bail.

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.
