Desiigner’s drug charge has been dismissed and his name is being cleared.
On Tuesday (Nov. 29), the D.A. sealed the case and dismissed the possession charge stemming from his September arrest, according to TMZ. The other charges — menacing and possession of a loaded gun — were dropped days after his arrest.
In September, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper was arrested and hit with the aforementioned charges: intent to sell, menacing, and possession of a loaded gun. However, investigators never found a gun and the drugs in the vehicle were steroids, likely prescribed to the driver of Desiigner’s SUV the evening of the arrest.
Although the “Panda” hitmaker wasn’t in the courtroom today, his attorneys issued a statement on the case. “We’re happy he’s been exonerated … and happy with the investigation from the D.A.,” said Ian Niles and Stacey Richman.
At the time of the arrest, Desiigner issued a statement of his own via Instagram. “Ni**as is crazy,” he said. “We back out here, man. You dig? Ni**as crazy. I heard ni**as say we had to sell pills? We don’t gotta do that shit no more, baby. We don’t do this no more, baby!”

Lil Yachty is in a “Judgement Free” zone.
On Monday (Nov. 28), Lil Boat premiered his Auto-Tune-filled single on Beats 1. “This is just who I am,” he sings. “This is just how I was created / Don’t you judge who I am / ‘Cause I still think that I’m the greatest.”
Yachty also addresses racial prejudice on the uptempo track. “Don’t judge me by the color of my skin today,” sings the “Minnesota” rapper. “Don’t crucify none of my friends today.”
Going along with the song’s theme, Yachty also retracted some of his own past judgements about The Notorious B.I.G.
“Until about two weeks ago, I had never listened to a Biggie song,” said Yachty. “I’ve listened to all his songs now. Update! I’m not going to sit here and lie and say I just bump him, but I know for a fact he was spittin’… He snapped. I can’t lie.”
“The only thing I kind of hate is that I spoke so quick on him before I even gave it a chance to listen to him,” he added. “Before I said that, I just was in the blind. I feel like I owe an apology. I didn’t think before I spoke on that topic. I know now how important and just how serious it is to certain people. I don’t want people thinking that I was disrespecting him because it wasn’t a disrespect thing. That’s just my personal opinion. My dad did not play Biggie or Tupac so I had never heard it. And I just now, to this day, feel like I was wrong for speaking about something like that without even taking a second to listen.”
