Desiigner was arrested Thursday night after a traffic dispute where the other driver called police saying the G.O.O.D. Music signee had pulled out a gun.
When they tracked down the “Panda” rapper, police say they found drugs in the vehicle, which led to the arrest of the 19-year-old and the four other people with him. They are all facing felony drug charges for possession and intent to sell. Desiigner has an added gun charge for allegedly threatening the other driver.
A #FreeDesiigner campaign is already underway, with supporters calling for his release. Meanwhile, his haters are finding amusement in his misfortune.
Tyga, who just signed to G.O.O.D. Music and released “Gucci Snakes” with the Brooklynite this week, shows his support. OG Maco uses the occasion to remind us that Bobby Shmurda and Kodak Black are still locked away as well.
So far, no word from G.O.O.D. Music founder Kanye West or president Pusha T.
