“Funny how YG gets arrested the weekend of the Grammy’s when he’s supposed to hit the stage in Nip’s honor,” The Game noted.

The 29-year-old rapper, who boasts hits such as “Toot It and Boot It” and “Big Bank,” was released on bond Friday night. The arrest came six months after his leased Hollywood Hills home was raided last summer. According to KTLA, YG wasn’t home at the time of the raid.

CBS Los Angeles reports:

Back on the night of July 3, 2019, a Cadillac Escalade registered to YG was involved in a deadly gun battle and pursuit with L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies which wound its way from Compton to Inglewood. An innocent 65-year-old man was struck and killed by the crossfire on a Compton street during the running gunfight. It was not immediately clear if he was killed by gunfire from the suspects or the deputies.

One suspect was captured, but another was believed to have escaped.

“I was nowhere near the scene of this incident, I was in Hollywood recording in the studio all day. I was there until after midnight on the 4th of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened!” YG tweeted in July of 2019.


YG is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
