YG Arrested In L.A Just Days Before He’s To Perform At Grammy’s

The 29-year-old rapper was taken to Men’s Central Jail in L.A. where he was booked for robbery. YG’s bail was set at $250,000 and he remains in custody. His arraignment has been set for Tuesday in Compton Court.

YG’s arrest comes just days before he is to perform at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.

As for whether the rapper will be able to make the ceremony following his arrest, YG’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, told ET that they are hoping to have him released from custody by end of day.

“We are posting bail. Quite frankly I suspect the timing of this was not coincidental. I think the whole purpose of this was to prevent him from doing that tribute to Nipsey [Hussle] on Sunday at the GRAMMYs,” Tacopina says.

“There’s no reason he should not be able to perform because he’s going to be able to post bail. The district attorney’s not even involved in these charges. It’s just a police case right now. The timing is more than little suspect.” He said.
