Following a concert at Greenville County’s Lavish Lounge, where a mass shooting occurred, the Georgia rapper — real name Kwame Brown — is facing two counts of illegal possession of a pistol by a felon. Foogiano was found with a Glock 40 caliber pistol and ammo, although investigators claim he didn’t fire any guns.

According to Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis, the perpetrators were suspected to be members of Foogiano’s “entourage.” Days after the incident, Jarquez Kezavion was arrested and charged with murder, while others suspected of being involved were still being pursued.
Foogiano was jailed in Tennessee earlier this year for violating his probation. After seeking to be returned to Georgia state custody, he is presently awaiting a judge’s ruling.
