YG’s weekend did not kick off to a good start. According to reports, he was arrested at his home as officers arrived with a search warrant. The home raid stems from charges of robbery. YG was taken in custody on Friday and has yet to be arraigned but his lawyer is denying all charges. His lawyer made a statement:
“This arrest is one that caught YG completely off guard because there is no truth to them, YG has no idea what investigators are talking about and we have not been provided with any details. We are learning about this case through the media.

TSR Staff: Thembi! @ThembiTV_ _____________________________________ Whew, #YG’s weekend started with a different kind of turn up when the cops turned up at his LA home at 4 am. According to @TMZ_TV, armed police showed up to YG’s home early Friday morning with a search warrant. _____________________________________ YG is currently in police custody and being transported to a jail to possibly be held for robbery. _____________________________________ It is unclear if this raid and arrest is in connection to a murder case YG’s Escalade was recently connected to. If you remember, YG’s SUV was involved in a high-speed chase in July 2019 which ended with someone inside the vehicle shooting and killing a 65-year-old man on a bicycle. _____________________________________ YG’s home was already raided in connection to that case however, and–click the link in our bio to read more 📸: @gettyimages
Hopefully YG is out in time to perform at his Grammy’s Nipsey Hussle tribute. Rapper The Game thinks the timing of his arrest is suspicious. He spoke out on social media:
Well, we’ll see how this goes!
