YG arrested: Rapper held on suspicion of robbery days before Grammys performance
Artist is scheduled to perform a tribute to his late collaborator Nipsey Hussle
The LA County Sheriff’s department said they arrived with a search warrant at the 29-year-old’s home on Friday 24 January.
The artist, born Keenon Jackson, was released at around 9pm (5pm GMT) the same day after being held on a $250,000 (£191,000) bail, according to Sky News.
YG is known for tracks including “Go Loko” and “Toot it and Boot it”.
Fellow rapper The Game tweeted about YG's arrest and criticised the Los Angeles Police Department, saying: “Funny how YG gets arrested the weekend of the Grammys when he's supposed to hit the stage in [Nipsey Hussle's] honour. #LAPDtheBiggestGangHere.”
The Grammys take place on 26 January at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
