Desiigner was taken into custody last week on felony drug and weapons charges and now, the rapper is sort of off the hook.

As previously reported, the New York rapper and four other men were arrested after getting into a road rage incident in NYC. Per the second vehicle involved, Desiigner pointed a gun at them before taking off in the SUV.

When officials tracked down the car, it was reported that a large amount of Oxycontin and other drugs were found in the center console of the white SUV. The group of men were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell.

Sidney Royel Selby III, the rapper’s legal name, was also hit with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon for brandishing a gun.

Now, several days later, it’s being reported that it was actually steroids that were discovered and the substance belonged to the “Panda” rapper’s driver.

The charges of intent to sell have apparently been dropped, as well as the charges over criminal possession of a loaded weapon. The 19-year-old, however, still faces charges from criminal possession of a controlled substance.  

After all the legal drama last week, Desiigner seemingly responded with a video on Twitter. Side note: We say “seemingly” because we have no idea what he is actually saying in the clip, but he appeared to be in a great mood.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
