Lil Yachty was driving on Tuesday (Sept. 4) when he says he was pulled over by a white police officer for no good reason at all. The Atlanta rapper took to Twitter following the incident to voice his frustrations with what he feels was a racially motivated traffic stop by law enforcement. 

"Wow, a white cop really just pulled me over just to ask me for the bill of sale on my car because he didn’t believe it was mine. Wtf," he wrote. "I didn’t do anything wrong. He literally just doesn’t believe it’s my car. Shit is crazy." It seems that Lil Boat was able to offer up the proper paperwork to prove the car actually belonged to him and resolve the traffic stop amicably. 

Come next month, the 21-year-old will be gearing up to head out on The Disrespect Tour alongside Bhad Bhabie, who will serve as an opening act for the North American trek. Yachty is slated to kick off the tour in Baltimore, MD on Oct. 24.
