Last month, the police wanted to speak to SpotemGottem about a murder that happened last year, believing he 'may have information.' Reginald Agnew Jr was fatally shot after a party at a local venue in 2020. Dallas Police Department noted that they 'believe the rapper has information regarding his murder and wanted to speak to him.

His attorney's statement at the time named Dallas Homicide Detective Patty Belew and read, "The libelous statements made by Det. Belew originated from her misunderstanding about a YouTube ‘rap video’ (in fact, a livestream) that Det. Belew claimed was about the death of Reginald Agnew, Jr and taunted the Dallas Police Department."
