Just two days shy of hitting the Grammy Awards stage, YG was arrested on robbery charges Friday morning (Jan. 24) during a raid of his home, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed.
The Compton rapper -- born Keenon Jackson -- is reportedly being tied to "an ongoing investigation." As of press time, the 29-year-old is being processed and held inside LA's Men's Central Jail with bail set at $250,000. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Compton Court on Tuesday.
YG's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, denied all accusations associated with the charges for his client. "This arrest is one that caught YG completely off guard because there is no truth to them," he told TMZ. "YG has no idea what investigators are talking about and we have not been provided with any details. We are learning about this case through the media. Rest assured, my client will be cleared of all charges, if they even survive past the arraignment."
