JayDaYoungan Arrested for Felony Drug Possession, Held Without Bond
JayDaYoungan faces some serious legal trouble.
On Saturday morning (May 11), the 20-year-old Louisiana rapper was arrested on a felony drug possession charge in Florida's Gadsden County. Details regarding the arrest are scarce, but it is known that he was set to perform at 2019 Rolling Loud Miami today. He's currently being held without bond.
In a statement to XXL, spoke on the setback. "Jay was scheduled to perform alongside Yungeen Ace at the Rolling Loud Festival and we know his fans were looking forward to seeing him there," reads one part of the statement. "Obviously, we were all disappointed. We hope to have more updates on Monday."
Youngan is a talented down-south artist that's accumulated a considerable amount of buzz over the last few years. Speaking to XXL for The Break last year, the rapper listed some of the artists he's been compared to in his career.
“Mainly [Boosie BadAzz] and NBA YoungBoy. I can see why they say Boosie but other than that [I] don't see me sounding similar to nobody else," Youngan said at the time. "I feel like they say that due to us being in the same area, and our lingo—it's all the same.”
Elsewhere in the same interview, Youngan said he planned to dominate the Billboard music charts. "I wanna be number one on the charts," Youngan revealed. "When I drop my album, I wanna be everybody's favorite artist."
