Why were Fredo Bang and Lit Yoshi arrested? Rappers had out-of-state warrants
Rappers Fredo Bang and Lit Yoshi were arrested in Miami-Dade hours apart on Thursday afternoon, July 22. Rappers, Fredrick Givens and Mieyoshi Young, who go by the names Fredo Bang and Lit Yoshi respectively, had out-of-state warrants out for their arrests.
Yoshi was wanted on an attempted murder charge in Louisiana. He was booked just after 12 pm on Thursday, July 22. Fredo, on the other hand, was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center just two hours later. Fredo's charges, however, were unknown at the moment. Fredo was arrested in 2016 for opening fire on a man during an argument outside of an apartment complex in Baton Rouge. The TBG rapper was set to perform at Rolling Loud hip-hop festival in Miami Gardens on Friday, July 23. Speaking of rappers being booked, rapper Sheff G was taken into custody on a gun charge on July 18, 2021. Polo G and Bandman Kevo were also recently arrested. A member from DaBaby’s entourage identified as Wisdom Awute was arrested for attempted murder on June 1, 2021.

Fredo and Yoshi are associated with the Baton Rouge rap group Top Boy Gorilla. Reportedly, they had a dispute with rapper NBA YoungBoy's crew in Louisiana. In an incident two years ago in 2019, someone in a passing car opened fire on NBA YoungBoy outside of Donald Trump's International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach. The rapper's girlfriend was injured in the incident, along with three innocent bystanders, a man, his girlfriend and her five-year-old son. Prosecutors in Louisiana have a reason to believe that the 2019 shooting incident is possibly linked to members of Top Boy Gorilla, namely Yoshi. However, no charges in connection to the said incident have been filed at the moment.
According to reports, a judge ruled that there is evidence linking Lit Yoshi to the 2019 shooting. Reportedly, a prosecutor wrote, "Once again, the motive and intent is retaliation against NBA by Edwards, a TBG member."
A judge reportedly ruled that there is evidence of beach shooting that could be used against Young - who is currently awaiting trial for an attempted murder case in Baton Rogue, the Miami Herald reported.
