We previously reported that there was an arrest warrant out for Memphis rapper Blocboy JB. He appeared in court with his lawyer yesterday morning and was immediately searched and taken into custody.
He was wanted for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, possession of a handgun, along with theft of property. His bond is set at $50k.
The attorney for JB says he was not on the run explaining that he now lives in California and needed to tend to some things there before returning to Memphis to face these charges. The lawyer added, “He’s got a large family. He’s got a mother, younger and older siblings and he’s the sole provider.” The lawyer also said, “We’re very confident that the charges will be dismissed once we sit down with the prosecutors.”
