In July, #LilBaby was arrested by authorities while attending #FashionWeek. In a recent interview, he took the time to address the situation with @icebox.
Lil Baby talks about the situation and says he had time to think about what happened. He said, “I know what happened after thinking about it. I was locked up like Thursday night and had a show on Saturday. ”He continued,“ I think if I don’t get out on Friday, I’ll get out on Monday. I’m not trying to miss my show on Saturday. “
After receiving calls and text messages asking if he was okay, he insisted it wasn’t him. “I’m like, ‘I know you guys will all see me in jail.’ They like ‘are you good?’ How close N *** a, I’m not good! ” Lil Baby continued, “I’m stumbling into this shit. I went to jail a lot, right? But they speak english. It’s like going to jail for the first time and I’m like a kid. “
He also addresses how the incident gave him a different perspective on his rap career. “The whole Paris experience let me know that I need to get bigger abroad,” he said. “I’m not saying that I shouldn’t go to jail for breaking the law, but that the police will know who I am.”
As previously reported, it appears that, according to reports from the French outlet Le Parisien, the Parisian police stopped James, Baby and another man at around 4:50 p.m. at 33 avenue Montaigne. The area is known for high-end luxury stores like Maison Margiela, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and more.
Le Parisien’s report says police checked the men after they smelled marijuana in their vehicle. During a search of the car, a judicial officer allegedly discovered about 20 g of cannabis in the passenger compartment of the car. James was not arrested in the incident. However, Baby and the other man were apparently taken into custody by the Narcotics Transport Chief.
