Lil Baby and another individual are in police custody in France.
According to CNN, the rapper is suspected of transporting illegal drugs.
French newspaper Le Parisien reports that the cops checked a vehicle that smelled like cannabis around 4:30 p.m. local time.
Basketball star James Harden and Lil Baby were in Paris for Fashion Week. Hours later, Lil Baby’s was detained in Paris’ 8th arrondissement late afternoon. Harden was stopped by the police, but he was not detained.
An investigation is ongoing, the prosecutor’s office also told CNN.
Lil Baby was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He is one of the hottest rappers out right now and is best known for his songs “Drip Too Hard” and “The Bigger Picture” – a protest song that was released after the death of George Floyd.
His reps have not responded to the arrest and very little other details are known about potential charges at this point.
