YG Bails Out of Jail After Robbery Arrest Before for Tonight’s Grammy Performance

*On Friday rapper YG, who was arrested at his home in a posh section of LA’s San Fernando Valley on Friday on felony robbery charges, has been released.

YG, whose real name is Keenon Jackson, made his $250,000 bond and was released from the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s online inmate information center says he posted bail and was released Friday night at 9:07 p.m. So far, details surrounding the case have not been released, according to XXLmag.com.

This is the second time in less than a year that police have searched YG’s home. Last July, authorities raided his crib after a car registered to the rapper was involved in a deadly police shootout. YG denied any involvement in that incident. “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident, I was in Hollywood recording in the studio all day. I was there until after midnight on the 4th of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened!” YG wrote on social media afterward.

In any event, now that he’s been released, most likely he will be able to participate in the Grammy Awards all-star tribute Nipsey Hussle. YG is also is scheduled to perform in honor of the late rapper along with Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, DJ Khaled, John Legend and Kirk Franklin at the awards ceremony later today,  Sunday (Jan. 26).

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS, on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, at 8pm ET/5pm PT. It will also stream live on the CBS All Access service.

YG’s next court date has been set for Jan. 28
