Foogiano arrested in Memphis after fleeing authorities
Unfortunately, in the rap game, it’s a common occurrence for artists to be arrested. Rapper Foogiano, real name Kwame Brown, who is under contract to Gucci Mane’s record label “1017”, was arrested in Memphis and taken to Shelby County Jail. He was arrested yesterday after allegedly removing his court-ordered ankle monitor and disappearing for two weeks. Foogiano was accused of having been a refugee from the judiciary without an arrest warrant. According to the Athens-Banner Herald, Foogiano was searched for his disappearance in Greensboro County, Georgia on December 29, 2020.
In the Athens-Banner Herald’s report, Foogiano was ordered to stay at his Georgia home after being arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted criminal in Barrow County, Georgia on December 6, 2020. This arrest was a direct violation of his probation, which resulted from a previous burglary conviction. At that point, Foogiano was released from Greene County Jail on December 14, 2020 after appearing in Greene County Supreme Court on $ 50,000 bail for violating his probation agreement. However, a Georgia Department of Community Service official received confirmation that same day that rapper “Gutta Baby” had tampered with his ankle monitor after he was released. His anklet was reportedly found on a highway in Barrow County, Georgia, with the straps apparently melted.
Fans would never have known he had legal problems because although Foogiano was on the run, he was very active on social media. Yesterday his girlfriend, rapper Renni Rucci, posted photos of the couple on her Instagram page entitled “I got us! Small setback for a big comeback. “Many of their fans offered their words of encouragement.
