Georgia rapper Baby D is facing federal charges for allegedly trafficking cocaine, following a recent arrest in Dayton, Ohio.

He is currently being held without bond in the Butler County jail in Ohio, a facility known for housing people held on federal charges.
In addition to the federal charges, Baby D has three pending assault charges in Tennessee, where he has a bond set.
A warrant for the rapper’s arrest in Georgia was recently dismissed.

The project, which included collaborations with Lil Jon and the YoungBloodz, was followed two years later by Baby Ds sophomore release, Lil’ Chopper Toy.
