The Californian rapper who was questioned after a search was conducted in his home in the early hours of Friday January 24, was arrested by the policemen who turned up with a search warrant and an arrest warrant related to a robbery case.

YG however insisted that he was nowhere near the robbery scene at the time of the first raid. He said;
“I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood. I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”
With his arrest, YG may not be part of the Grammy Awards on Sunday January 26. He was expected to perform in an all-star tribute to his late collaborator Nipsey Hussle.
