After enjoying what turned out to be a hectic finish to Paris Fashion Week alongside Nets superstar James Harden, it’s back to the money for Lil Baby. The Grammy-nominated rapper has two shows lined up for Saturday (July 10) with one in Cincinnati hosted by comedian DC Youngfly and another in Indianapolis.
Lil Baby and his bodyguard were reportedly stopped by police in Paris when the officers smelled a potent weed odor and searched their vehicle.
James Harden looked on and attempted to help but was frisked himself and let go. French authorities allegedly found 32 grams of marijuana and arrested Baby — born Dominique Jones — and his bodyguard on suspicion of transporting drugs. They were released on Friday after receiving fines for the incident.
“I turned my head and it was unbelievable, I saw Lil Baby and James Harden, they are standing and are being frisked,” a witness at the scene said.
