Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul Arrested in St. Louis [Video]
Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul are seen laughing in the above clip, but they aren’t necessarily in the best of positions. The two were embarking on the Smokers’ Club Tour when they were arrested before their performance in St. Louis, which is scheduled for tonight (Oct. 29).
It’s not known exactly why the rappers were arrested and apparently the police didn’t tell them the reason either. In the video, Joey exclaims, “They don’t even know why we’re handcuffed right now.” The arrest was rumored to be marijuana-related, however.
DJ Statik Selektah, who’s touring with Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul, revealed later on in a tweet that the entertainers aren’t in custody any longer and the St. Louis concert will go on as scheduled. The DJ also says the incident was caused by “typical police racism.”
