The Memphis Police Department and U.S. Marshals are still on a nationwide manhunt for the aspiring rapper, who calls himself “Straight Drop.” It is reported that officials viewed his music video for clues to his whereabouts.
The home where the music video was filmed is the same location where the getaway vehicle, a white Mercedes Benz was found abandoned.
According to Fox13 Memphis, an attorney representing Johnson said he was unaware of the rapper’s plan to turn himself in.
Johnson posted on his Instagram story last week:
“Turning Myself In Monday @ 201. I’m Innocent. I’ll Be Back Sooner Than You Can Blink.” He also had a message for bloggers: “Next time post the REAL .. BS blogs.”
