Moneybagg Yo's legal troubles: A look at rapper's past controversies amid another shooting at his after party
Rapper Moneybagg Yo seems to be attracting a lot of trouble off-late as a gunfire shooting took place at the Memphis rapper’s recent party in Dallas on September 26. The news comes after less than a week when an alleged shooting took place at his birthday party in Las Vegas.
According to the Instagram post of The Shade Room, there was a lot of chaos at the V Live, a popular strip club in Dallas, when an unidentified man reportedly got near the mic inside the club before shots rang out. According to the reports, the staff members then locked themselves in various rooms to avoid gunfire. If reports are to be believed, the 29-year-old artist was not harmed during the gunfire shoot.
The rapper has not posted anything on his social media accounts regarding the shoot. Talking about his Las Vegas birthday party gunfire shoot, Moneybagg had earlier denied that he was the target of the incident. The ‘Federal 3X’ hit-maker posted an Instagram story to clear the air. While sitting in his brand new wheels, Moneybagg was heard saying, “Shot at who? Ain’t no mother f***ers shot as us man. I’m in a Maybach right now.” The American artist, who has 5.3 million followers on his official Instagram account also added that he was sitting with his shoes off in the car gifted by girlfriend Ari Fletcher as he remained unphased by the rumors.
Haring about the latest gunfire shoot, a lot of people spoke about the hot topic on Twitter. One user said, “MoneyBagg yo gotta get low bullets following him everywhere” One tweeted, “We all need to light some sage and pray for moneybagg yo cause someone is trying to end a successful black man’s life” Another added, “Someone wants moneybagg yo dead and it isn’t even funny quit” One individual stated, “@MoneyBaggYo BE SAFE IN THESE STREETS BIG SPEAKA”

Complex had reported that some of the footage of the Las Vegas party also made it to the social media where people could be seen near the casino as multiple shots were heard in the background. According to TMZ, a few sources confirmed to them that no major injuries were reported, however, one woman was treated for "a minor grazing injury.” Law enforcement sources told TMZ that an altercation had occurred near the valet station and that led to one person firing a gun.
This is not the first time when the rapper has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. In 2016, MoneyBagg, whose real name is Demario White, was arrested on drug and gun charges along with 28 other people during his CD release party. According to WMC News, the deputies had confiscated 10 loaded guns, a bulletproof vest, cash and drugs from the scene.
Apart from this, Moneybagg hasn’t had much brush off with the law but he did make headlines when he had a beef with a fellow rapper Young Dolph a few years ago and he has also been in the news on and off for dating Instagram supermodel Fletcher. Moneybagg also attracted a lot of attention when he had dropped his album titled ‘Time Served’ in January 2020.
