Just earlier this week, Yung Bleu posted an incident between himself and Gainseville, Georgia police, on Instagram, which resulted in the rapper’s arrest. The “You’re Mines Still” singer attempted to purchase a trailer for touring ahead of his forthcoming Moon Boy Tour that is set to begin Thursday, August 26th.
When the rapper was released from jail, he immediately blasted the trailer company, Absolute Trailers, and the Gainesville Police Department for what he felt was racial profiling.
“THESE GAINESVILLE, Ga POLICE OFFICERS are racially profiling us ! They approached me and my team for absolutely nothing trying to buy a trailer for my tour at (Absolute Trailers) the owner was a old white guy who called the police talking about they suspect fraud ! I was just trying to buy a trailer ! The first officers walk up with hands on guns,” Yung Bleu explained on Instagram. “We have a brief back n forth and then As I leave the cop is sitting in the middle of the highway waiting on us . They trap and get get behind me ! say my tag is obstructed but she clearly had her lights on way before she saw the back of my car ! 5 cars have pulled up on us since then ! Saying we do fraud and all type of lies ! I HAVE MORE VIDEO BUT I will use only as evidence . We did nothing wrong !”
Yung Bleu could have possibly had a change of heart as the rapper is not reneging his old claims with a new perspective. “I admit when I’m wrong !” he captioned the IG post. “Even tho I did not agree with all the methods used of detainee me . my license was suspended, and I was arrested legally. I was furious about what lead the police to me ! This all stemmed from the vicious lies told by this establishment Absolute Trailer so that’s were i will be focusing my energy.”
