Rapper Pop Smoke got a surprise last week after he was scheduled to perform at a concert in New York, but when he touched down, he was arrested at Kennedy International Airport for allegedly stealing a 2019 Rolls-Royce worth $375,000.
According to reports, Pop Smoke had borrowed for a music video in California, according to an indictment and a law enforcement official. The Roll-Royce Wraith was borrowed for the video back in November, then he reportedly had the luxury vehicle transported to New York without permission. It was reported missing by the driver and has since been returned to them after they found the car parked outside the home of Pop Smoke’s mother in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn. Police say he changed the license plate and tinted the windows.
Pop Smoke is reportedly facing one federal charge for the interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle.
The rapper is best known for his collaboration with high profile artists, including Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott.
