Migos Members Arrested on Guns, Drugs Charges After Police End Concert
Two members of the Atlanta rap trio Migos were arrested following the group’s appearance at Georgia Southern University’s Spring Bling concert Saturday night. The “Versace” rappers were in the middle of their set when the stage manager told the DJ to cut the concert short because the police had arrived on scene.
Upon leaving the stage, Migos’ Quavo, Offset, Takeoff and their entourage were immediately questioned by authorities. Soon after, Quavo and Offset were arrested for felony possession of cocaine, Oxycontin and codeine plus charges of carrying a loaded weapon in a school zone, TMZ reports.
According to the Bulloch Sheriff Department’s database, both Quavo (real name: Quavious Marshall) and Offset (real name: Kiari Cyphus) were arrested, booked and charged with four counts apiece. In Quavo’s case, he was charged with three felonies – possession of a schedule II controlled substance, possession of a firearm and carrying a weapon in a school zone – as well a misdemeanor marijuana charge.
Offset was given two felonies (possession of a firearm by convicted felon, carrying a weapon in a school zone) and two misdemeanors (marijuana less than an ounce, possession of schedule II controlled substance). Several members of Migos’ entourage were also booked. According to the Bulloch Sheriff Department, Quavo and Offset remain in custody pending a bond hearing. Following the arrest, Migos tweeted ”#Fuck12.”
Rolling Stone recently spoke to the emerging rap group about their first proper LP, Y.R.N.: Tha Album. “We’re proving longevity and versatility, and that we can actually sell records,” Offset said. The trio has such a fervent following after their steady stream of mixtapes that memes exist boasting that Migos are better than the Beatles. ”Why wouldn’t it be better than the Beatles?” Offset said. “They’re legends, but we’re legends too now. Quavo was just saying he wanted to meet Paul McCartney, so nothing against them. But they saying we better, so it is what it is.”
