The rapper previously had a warrant for his arrest, dating back to an incident in June where he was in a car with friends and broke the gate at a parking garage. SpotemGottem reportedly aimed a semi-automatic weapon at somebody who tried to stop them as they drove off before fleeing the scene.
The rising star is best known for his hit single “Beat Box,” and the dozen remixes of the track that came afterward. The track has been extremely popular on social media, sparking updated versions with DaBaby, NLE Choppa, Pooh Shiesty, Young M.A, and others.
