One of rap’s most innovative producers found himself in handcuffs over the weekend in South Florida.
Southside, who has produced a long line of hits for artists like Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Future, French Montana, Kanye West, and Drake just to name a few, was caught in Ventura, Florida with two concealed weapons while he was driving with a suspended license.
The 808 Mafia boss, born Joshua Luellen, allegedly forgot his Georgia driver’s license – and his license in Florida had been suspended for a few years.
When the cops peered into the vehicle they saw two fully loaded guns -one between his shoes and another behind the passenger seat. At some point in the past, Southside had a legit permit to carry the concealed weapons, but unfortunately, that license was supposedly expired too.
Southside was sent to jail, but he was out in no time, after posting up a $5,500 bond.
During a video after his arrest, Southside claimed he was profiled because the cops in the area had never seen the pricey Maybach, was has a starting price of $165,000.
Southside also claimed he has licenses in both states. Check out his side of the story:
