Rapper Blac Youngsta ran into some legal troubles in Dallas over the weekend.
The rapper, born Sammie Benson, was caught with a firearm yesterday afternoon (October 11th). While details are scant, he was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Blac Youngsta was sent to the Dallas County Jail where he was held on a $5,000 bond. His lawyer Andrew Wilkerson posted a picture of the rapper on his Instagram feed inside of jail.
Blac Youngsta is known for his love of guns. Last week, he posted a video of himself riding around holding a fully-loaded AK-47. In August, Blac Youngsta went viral after posting a video of himself firing a gun out of a moving car.
In May of 2017, the rapper was hit with six felonies for allegedly firing over 100 rounds at rival rapper Young Dolph in Charlotte. The rapper was accused of trying to kill Young Dolph, who was feuding with Yo Gotti at the time.
In May of 2019, Blac Youngsta beat the case when all of the charges were dropped against the Memphis rapper due to lack of evidence. While Blac Youngsta managed to escape prison, the VP of Yo Gotti’s record label was not so lucky.
Keon Wright was sentenced to 10 to 14 years in prison for his role in targeting Young Dolph in the shooting.
