G-Eazy took to Instagram on Sunday (May 6) to issue a statement following his May 3 arrest. The Beautiful & Damned rapper emphasized his gratitude throughout the message, saying he’s “grateful and blessed” to be a free man while also mentioning that he’s “embarrassed” about the episode.

“Embarrassed & apologetic beyond words about the incident, but above all I’m so fucking grateful they let me go, craziest experience of my life, awful night with a lot of bad luck and some even worse decisions, but like I said I’m grateful as fuck to be a free man, back on tour performing for the fans,” he wrote. “Thank you to everyone who’s held me down along the way and supported this journey, I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. Love.”

The Bay Area native was at a nightclub in Stockholm, Sweden when he got into an altercation with club security. Upon their arrival, police found the 28-year-old in possession of 1.5 grams of cocaine and ultimately charged him with assaulting an officer, violent resistance and illegal drug possession.

He wasn’t taken to jail, however, as he alluded in his statement. Instead, he was allowed to leave the country to make his next tour stop in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In January, G-Eazy discussed his struggle with addiction during an interview on The Breakfast Club.

I think sometimes the line between recreation or just tapping in turns into leaning on or depending on or escaping from,” he said.It’s a balance, it’s a vicious cycle, I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes, I’ll just be smooth and tap out for a couple weeks and just be.”
