Chicago, IL – Chicago rapper G Herbo was arrested on Thursday night (February 22) during a traffic stop, according to Fox 32 Chicago. He and two other men have reportedly been charged with illegal gun possession after police allegedly found loaded weapons in the vehicle.

According to a statement from Chicago Police, the stop happened around 10:35 p.m., and all three men are facing a felony count of aggravated unlawful use of a loaded weapon in a vehicle without proper documentation. They were expected to appear in bond court on Friday (February 23).

Herbo, who has collaborated with artists like Chance The Rapper, Common and Nicki Minaj, put out his debut album, Humble Beast, last September and released the Humble Beast Deluxe Version last week.

He’s also expecting a child soon.

In a 2016 interview with VladTV, Herbo spoke about dropping out of high school his junior year and the dangers he faced going to school in his violent Chi-Town neighborhood.

“It was a risk,” he said. “I was risking my life and risking my freedom. We was already in the streets. Yes, you can get killed going to school. People got killed going to school. Early in the morning. That’s when you get killed on bus stops going to school, on your way to school, leaving your house at 7 in the morning shit like that. You’ll get killed like that easy in Chicago.”
