Rapper Pop Smoke was arrested for allegedly stealing and transporting a $375,000 Rolls-Royce from California to New York.

The 20-year-old, whose real name is Bashar Jackson, was arrested on Friday, Jan. 17, at JFK airport after arriving on a flight from Paris, France where he attended Paris Fashion Week.

The 2019 Rolls-Royce was found parked outside his parents' home in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn. The license plate had been changed and the windows had been tinted, authorities say.

The rapper told police he "borrowed" the car for a music video, according to an indictment.

The Brooklyn native is accused of arranging to transport the Rolls-Royce cross country on the back of a flatbed truck.

A photo posted on Instagram shows him posing in front of the stolen luxury vehicle at a gas station. The image has since been deleted from Instagram, but it can be viewed on Facebook.com.

Jackson is charged with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, a felony. The car has since been returned to its rightful owner.

Thanks to NY state's no cash bail reform, Jackson was released after a court appearance on Friday. He is best knowns for his rap singles "Welcome to the Party" and "Dior" off his debut mixtape Meet the Woo.

Rapper DaBaby couldn't help himself when he spotted a curvy mannequin in a convenience store. The rapper dropped his pants and simulated sex acts with the mannequin until it broke in half.

The "Suge" rapper has been in the headlines for non-music related incidents lately. DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon and "self-defense" after a shootout in a Huntersville, NC Walmart. A 19-year-old man was killed in the shootout. Charges against the rapper were dropped in March 2019.

Earlier this month, DaBaby was arrested in Miami in connection with the robbery and assault of a music promoter. He was released from jail on $1,500 bond.

Wayne, real name Dwayne M Carter, Jr., is known to favor lean, a concoction of codeine cough syrup and hard candy mixed in a soda beverage which he carries around in styrofoam cups.

Weezy has had a number of run-ins with the law during his rap career. He served a year in jail after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in Manhattan in 2009, after cops found a loaded .40-caliber pistol on his tour bus two years earlier.

Wayne took to Twitter.com on Monday evening to assure his fans he was okay and wouldn't be spending Christmas in federal custody.

"All goody! I think they thought I was talking abt a different "Pack" in my last tweet. But anyway GO PACK GO!!!"

His tweet was in reference to cheering on the Green Bay Packers who defeated the Minnesota Vikings, 23-10 on Monday to clinch their first NFC North title since 2016.

Rapper Juice Wrld died of a drug overdose after swallowing opioid pills when federal agents searched a private plane he was on at Chicago's Midway airport in early December.

The 27-year-old rapper was once at the top of her game. It’s hard to think of another rapper - male or female - who dominated the music industry faster than Cardi B. And she did it on the strength of just one song ("Bodak Yellow")

She was destined for rap legend status - until Lizzo and Megan Thee Stallion came along and stole her thunder.

Chicago rapper Famous Dex apparently suffered a seizure during a performance at a Los Angeles nightclub early Friday, Nov. 1. According to TMZ, the incident happened at L.A.'s 1 Oak nightclub where Dex was performing.

Cell phone video shows club patrons supporting the motionless rapper who appears to be out cold. Dex's camp released a statement on Friday morning, saying he is in good spirits and recovering from an epileptic seizure.

If you're wondering if drugs are involved, they might be. According to XXL, Dex's fans were very concerned about his apparent battle with drug addiction last year.

He reportedly struggles with addictions to lean, aka purple drank or sizzurp. Lean is a toxic potion containing codeine cough syrup, a soda beverage and hard candy. The concoction is known to cause seizures when guzzled in large amounts.

Last year, the 26-year-old rapper appeared to pass out during an Instagram Live session. He promised his fans that he would quit drinking lean and popping Xanax, a prescription drug that is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic disorders.

Other famous rappers who suffered seizures from drinking lean include Lil Wayne (pictured), Rick Ross, Lil Baby, and rap legend Pimp C, who unfortunately died. Rappers prefer to gulp down lean in a large styrofoam cup.

Cardi B dug in her heels after the backlash when she claimed credit for paving the way for female SoundCloud rappers.

"I didn't say I pave the way for female rappers but I deff gave the hood and women hope," she tweeted on Wednesday, Oct. 23 [sic].

The 27-year-old rapper said she opened the door for male rappers to collaborate with unknown female rappers on their songs. Cardi said before she became a household name, rappers were hesitant to record a verse on her tracks because she wasn't mainstream.

"Nikkas wasn't collabing with female rappers and putting them in a shelf and not focusing on them. Not giving them proper attention. It seem like it was impossible for it to be more than one female rapper. These male rappers where not even takin Money from female rappers for a feature cause it seem far fetch for another woman to make it. I see so many artists collabing wit females now even.. Some that are not mainstream because I know they don't want to miss out on the opportunity in case they make it cause trust and believe [a lot] of Nikkas I asked for features from when they see me they tell me "I shoulda believe" [Damn] I should have did the feature [sic]."

Cardi's fans agreed, saying she made it possible for SoundCloud female rappers to get instant clout by hopping on the records of up-and-coming rappers.

One Instagram user wrote:

"She's completely right there's a lot of female rappers coming up right now that we never heard of and we're still learning about them Cardi gave them big hope, there should be no reason for only a few mainstream female rappers to make it while there's thousands of mainstream male rappers."

Georgetown University canceled a scheduled concert by rapper Fabolous, citing his history of domestic violence.

Colleges and universities have begun cracking down on rappers performing on campuses after the University of Kansas apologized for an offensive concert by rapper Snoop Dogg last week.

Washington, D.C. student activists protested the upcoming concert by the 41-year-old Brooklyn rapper at the school's Hoya Madness event.

On Oct. 6 Georgetown's athletic department announced that Fabolous was booked to perform at an upcoming concert. But students activists launched a petition in protest.

The students cited the rapper's history of domestic violence against his baby mama, Emily B. Fabolous, real name John David Jackson, was videotaped harassing Emily and shouting obscenities at her father last year.

"We strongly urge Georgetown to reconsider the message it sends students in booking an act who has a history of domestic violence. Georgetown Athletics, cancel Fabolous' performance to condemn his past behavior and maintain the Hoya family as a welcoming and safe space for all."

Fabolous pleaded guilty to harassment but the charge was eventually dropped on the condition that he enter a pretrial intervention program. He wasn't required to take an anger management course.

The school's athletic department formally disinvited Fabolous from performing on campus on Oct. 8.
