Harlem rapper Sheck Wes has receded from the spotlight a bit since “Mo Bamba,” the breakout hit from his 2018 debut album Mudboy, dropped off the Hot 100. He released a handful of songs last year, but they didn’t really move the needle. Now he’s making headlines again for less gratifying reasons.
As TMZ reports, Sheck Wes was arrested in Harlem early Wednesday morning. Citing excessive window tint, police pulled over the 2019 Lamborghini SUV he was driving with three passengers. The cops reportedly searched the car due to the smell of marijuana and founded a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol. Wes and his three passengers were all booked for felony possession of a loaded firearm and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Wes was also cited for driving without a license.
