Investigators have linked the rapper to offences involving gang violence and rivalries in parts of Louisiana. While the investigation resumes, police believe the violence was retaliatory.

Management in Cobb County, Georgia, also charged the rapper in October 2020 after he was accused of physically attacking a woman.
