Staying out of trouble seems like it should be the number one priority for any rapper out there. Some of them do a pretty good job, but others seem like they’re in the news every other week for breaking the law. All that money must get to their heads. Shock G from the Digital Underground rap group recently had a run in with the law that might make you scratch your head. A simple drive around ended up with Shock being in handcuffs, and we’re pretty sure that wasn’t his planned final destination.
Going for a car ride in Wisconsin must have seemed like a normal enough idea at the time, but things ended up different than you would think. According to TMZ, the 53-year-old Digital Underground rapper was driving around in a car that might not have even been his.
The car that he was driving had a license plate that was registered to an unlicensed person, and that person just happened to be the one sitting in the passenger seat right next to shock. While we aren’t sure about why he was pulled over in the first place, we sure do know how it ended up.
He was arrested for posession of drug paraphernalia on June 13th, and he could have been facing a good amount of time in jail. In case you didn’t know, Shock G is the main founding member of the hip-hop group Digital Underground from Oakland. They’ve had multiple hit songs like “Doowutchalike” and “The Humpty Dance” that you might of heard, but they’re pretty underground as their name would suggest.
The group has toured the world quite a few times, and they’re also known for being mentors to Tupac Shakur and taking him on tour with them back in the day. Back in 2008, the group disbanded, and they released their final album titled Cuz a D.U. Party Don’t Stop!.
However, the group has been known mostly for having their great live performances. Thankfully for Shock G, he posted his bail, and it seems like he’ll be good to go in the near future.
