It might be time for Young Thug's mom to sit her son down and let the rapper know he’s not above the law.

On Thursday (Jan. 12) in Atlanta, the rapper reportedly failed to appear in court for a second time, stemming from a ticket for excessively tinted windows, according to TMZ. A judge was said to have issued a warrant for his arrest.

This marks the second arrest warrant for Young Thug, who was picked up by police while shopping last month in Atlanta's Lenox Square Mall. While responding to a report about a stolen car, officers spotted the rapper and were aware of his outstanding arrest warrant, for being a no-show in an initial court appearance for a previous traffic violation concerning the tinted windows. 

A rep for Young Thug did not immediately respond to Billboard's request for comment.
