Def Jam artist Lil’ Reese’s legal woes continue to mount.
The “Traffic” was nabbed for possession of marijuana Saturday evening, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Lil’ Reese, whose birth name is Tavares Taylor, was spotted with the drug after police saw the Glory Boy remove a plastic sandwich bag from his pocket.
Police searched Lil’ Reese and found four grams of cannabis and $2,090, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
When officers asked Reese where the money came from, the Black Disciple responded, “It’s mine, I got a little weed. So what? There’s serious crime out there. This ain’t a big deal. I’m gangster,” according to a police report obtained by the Tribune.
Reese appeared in criminal court and is being held on $10,000 bail.
Reese’s rap sheet continues to grow.
The GBE rapper was arrested and charged with misdemeanor theft in late June.
Lil’ Reese, whose birth name is Tavares, allegedly presented false documentation to obtain a 2006 BMW 750 Li on April 13, according CBS 2 Chicago.
The arrest came only two months after Reese was arrested when officers found him sleeping in his car.
The “Money Stackin” rapper was taken into custody for an arrest warrant involving criminal actions in Champaign County.
On Feb. 1, 2012, Lil’ Reese was involved in an incident that led to charges of criminal trespass, mob actions and battery, according to Champaign County court records obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.
In a video that has since gone viral, Lil’ Reese can be seen engaged in an altercation with 18-year-old Tiairah Marie.
A violent tussle ensued and Lil’ Reese is seen throwing punches at the young woman. It also appears the Lil’ Reese received some assistance from a friend in beating the woman.
Lil’ Reese then throws Marie to the ground and stomps her with repeated kicks to her head. Lil’ Reese took to Twitter to address the issue.
“The haters tryna see a mf Dwn lol Dey gotta b broke and bored wanna upload sum shit from years ago damnn we winnin it’s 2 late…#3hunna,” he wrote.
Marie revealed the incident took place a year ago and the fight came as a result of her asking the rapper to leave her “crib.”
Marie wrote she is way past the incident, but acknowledged any man who lays their hands on a woman is a “P*ssy.”
Lil’ Reese is currently being held on a $100,000 bail.
