A rapper from Nashville named Joey Bada$$ was reportedly arrested by police in the US after his music video was pulled from YouTube.
Bada-$$’s latest single, “Wake Up When November Ends,” has been taken down.
“I just want to say I’m sorry.
I’m truly sorry,” Bada says in the video.
BADA-$$ has not been arrested yet.
“It is against the law for anyone to use music videos to promote drugs or violence,” Nashville Police Chief Tim Longo said.
Badas video has over 100,000 views on YouTube, with over 1.8 million comments.
“We are trying to do our best to understand what happened and work with our partner law enforcement to figure out what happened,” Longo told reporters.
“They have the video on their website.
We are trying, but I cannot tell you exactly what we can do or where they can look.”
Bada was reportedly pulled over by police at the airport for failing to have his headlights on.
He was arrested for allegedly speeding and a warrant was issued for his arrest, but he says he was not in the airport when the officers pulled him over.
“He is still waiting to be released from jail,” Long said.
“That’s all I can tell you right now.”
BADA has had his fair share of run-ins with the law.
He has been arrested for drunk driving, drug possession, and other minor offenses.
“When I got to the studio and my lawyer said I have a warrant out for my arrest I was like, ‘No, man, I don’t need to go to jail,’ ” Bada told Billboard in 2015.
“There was a warrant on my head.
They just wanted me to sit in a car and drive around and get my license and tag number, and just chill and just get to the point.
That’s what I did.”
