The rapper’s birth name is Tyrone William Griffin Jr. He and six others were stopped Sept. 5 after a police officer said he smelled marijuana coming from a van near downtown Atlanta. A police report says a search of the vehicle yielded marijuana and cocaine.

Police initially detained all seven people in the van but released everyone but Griffin after concluding the drugs belonged to him.

A representative for Griffin did not respond Tuesday to an email seeking comment. Court records show Griffin lives in Los Angeles.
