Kanye West’s friend and collaborator Sheck Wes was arrested in New York on felony charges for possession of a gun and marijuana.
According to reports, the 21-year-old rapper was arrested along with his three friends in a 2019 Lamborghini Urus SUV for excessive window tint in Harlem early Wednesday morning.
The car reportedly had a heavy smell of marijuana which prompted a search by police.
According to the reports, police found a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol in a bag on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Sheck and his three passengers were each booked for two felonies including criminal possession of a loaded firearm. Sheck Wes was also booked for not having a driver’s license.
Sheck famously performed at Kanye West’s Nebuchadnezzar opera at the Hollywood Bowl back in November. The opera also featured musical performances by singer Peter Collins and Infinity’s Song. He burst onto the hip-hop scene in 2017 with a critically-acclaimed debut album, Mudboy, which featured his biggest hit today single Mo Bamba.
He has gone on to collaborate with another member of the Kardashian-Jenner family as he formed rap supergroup Jackboys with Travis Scott. Sheck and Travis released a titular debut album in December which peaked at No. 1 on the US charts.
