Rico Richie finally caught national attention with his “Poppin” single earlier this month, but he is now facing a serious career setback now. TMZ reports that the Atlanta rapper was just arrested on gun and marijuana charges.
Apparently, police were looking for Young Thug at a studio where he recorded his “Halftime” video when they came across Ricon — who just happened to be there for a studio session. A subsequent search turned up weed and 2 guns, and the blame was put on Rico. However, the rapper’s camp says none of the items found belong to him.
Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
