The Tennessee authorities announced that they had issued a warrant for the arrest of BlocBoy JB.
BlocBoy JB seems to have found itself in some problems with the law. At the beginning of today (February 16th), the Shelby County Sheriff's Office announced that it had issued a warrant for the arrest of BlocBoy JB. BlocBoy JB, real name James Baker, is wanted with the charge of possession of drugs and possession of accessories for drugs. In addition, he is also wanted with the accusation of a convicted criminal in possession of a gun and property theft. The Shelby County Sheriff's Office asked for help from the public to try and find the rapper. However, they did not release any of the details relating to the allegations. As emphasized by Complex, it is not active on social media since Friday evening.
We hope this situation will soon resolve. The rapper has regularly released music in recent weeks, so it seemed like he had some sort of project he was working on. Earlier this week, he released his song, "Clap Out" which followed the release of his collaboration with DaBaby, "Mini Van."
In January, BlocBoy JB became the last artist to sue Epic Games for the use of his "Shoot" dance in Fortnite . The rapper has accused the company of having co-opted the dance "Shoot" and has dubbed the dance "Hype". The rapper said that he invented the dance and made it popular through his music. He said that Fortnite never received permission to use his dance.
We will keep you updated on your status.
