Trouble lived up to his name
Atlanta rapper Trouble has turned himself in to police to face charges related to drug possesion and distribution.
The “Brick” rapper announced his intention to turn himself in on Instagram. He posted a video of himself listening to the apropos Boosie BadAzz and Z-Ro track “Go Away.” In spite of his pending loss of freedom, Trouble appeared to be in an upbeat mood.
The rapper reflected on how well his year was going up to that point and promised his fans he’d be out soon.
“This Been like the Best year of my life #OnLord ainnn lyin!, So i guess its only right it ends with a lil chaos!. I foreva have and will Be responsiBle for anythang i commit myself to! You gotta take these Losses the same way you do when you Win!!.. SpeedBallin, i lost my freedom again, But never my faith.. For those who don’t know But do care, i’ll Be turning myself in in the morning to finish this chapter off Back Behind the G-Wall, unfortunately!! To my fans friends and family i love yall. ErBody move smooth out dis B-tch dawg! I’ll see yall next year!“
According to XXL, Trouble is currently being held in a Dekalb County jail and faces charges of possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of a schedule II controlled substance, and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance.
This is the second time Trouble has been incarcerated in the last year. He was arrested in late 2016 on charges of firearm possession, drug trafficking, and possession of steroids.
The rapper does not yet have a release date or a sentence, but he seems to believe he’ll be out soon.
Trouble has been rapping since he was 14 and has been on savvy magazines’ lists of rappers on the come-up for about as long. His mixtapes have landed him on best-of lists as early as 2011 and both Complex and XXL have marketed him as a rapper to know in various features.
Though he’s released nine mixtapes, he’s yet to drop a studio album. He has appeared on various star-studded track like “Bussin” (alongside Waka Flocka, Yo Gotti and Trae The Truth) and YFN Lucci’s “Key To The Streets.”
A Great Year
His recent 16 mixtape featured appearances from T.I., Peewee Longway, and Boosie BadAzz. He also has a collaborative mixtape coming up with star-making producer Mike Will Made It called Edgewood. The tape is expected to have features from heavy hitters like Drake.
In short, he’s right to call this year a good one, in spite of the fact that he’s been to jail twice. Whether Edgewood will drop with Trouble in jail — leaving him to return to regular life triumphant with a big hit single coasting on some earworm-y production — or it will give him something to do as soon as he gets out, remains to be seen.
