HipHollywood can confirm that Nipsey Hussle was arrested late Wednesday night on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance after cops found a bottle of codeine in his car.
The Burbank Police Department tells us that during a routine traffic stop around 11:20 p.m in Burbank, they discovered that Nipsey was driving with a suspended license and had an outstanding warrant. While stopped, law enforcement also found a bottle of codeine, a soft drink and cup of ice inside the car. Basically, the potion for a cup of sizzurp.
Ermias Asghedom, the rapper’s legal name, was not able to provide a subscription for the codeine so he was cuffed and taken to jail. He was also arrested for the outstanding warrant.
Nipsey was released after posting $1,000 bail.
The rapper has remained mum on the incident.
