Pooh Shiesty has been one of the biggest breakout stars of 2021, as he’s had plenty of hits such as “Back In Blood” feat. Lil Durk, and “Neighbors,” feat. BIG30. He also had the number two project in the country on the Billboard 200 chart, with his “Shiesty Season” mixtape. The deluxe also came out last month, which included G Herbo, Lil Baby, and more.
Legal issues have been a problem for the Memphis rapper since last fall though, and now, that is continuing. According to reports, the 1017 artist has surrendered to police. This is in regards to a shooting that happened at the King of Diamonds strip club there, over a week ago.
Shiesty at the time, had a concert at that venue. At the same time, he trended after supposedly being pick pocketed of $40,000 in cash that were in his pockets. He went on to deny that this happened to him. When Shiesty left KOD, he supposedly had a gun that was visibly seen as well.
An altercation supposedly started between Shiesty and security staff, as he was being escorted out. The issue at hand was the $40k that Shiesty lost. Soon, he fired off a shot into the ground. One of the security guards was shot, and taken to a local hospital. Charges on the table are felony aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Shiesty also had issues in Miami last fall. In October, he was facing charges of armed robbery with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon doing great bodily harm, aggravated assault with a firearm, and theft. This was in the Bay Harbor Islands area. Shiesty was meeting a victim in an attempt to buy a pair of Air Jordan 4 sneakers. The other victim wanted to sell him marijuana and get payment for a lime green McClaren they rented to Shiesty. One of them was speaking with Shiesty, when two men got out of another car. From that point, Shiesty ended up shooting one of them in the buttocks. The other victim had an assault rifle pointed at him by Shiesty as the rapper said “Don’t try it, don’t try it.”
Police ended up finding Shiesty for that incident after he left a Louis Vuitton bag, which was full of cash. His Instagram feed was investigated and police matched the McClaren, Louis bag, and a $100 bill which matched the serial number to one of the other bills at the scene.
