Drug arrest threatens career of emerging rap artist

Fans of rap music in New York anticipating the release of a debut album from Rich Homie Quan might not have a chance to see him perform in the future after his arrest for alleged drug possession. Police in his home state in the South arrested him along with five of his associates at a Saturday night checkpoint. Authorities suspected the men of possessing drugs and a stolen firearm.

TMZ released details from the rapper's arrest report that described charges of felony marijuana possession and an intent to distribute. The amount of marijuana allegedly on his person was not known. Police jailed him pending his bond hearing.

His release of mixtapes between 2012 and 2015 launched his career, but then a legal battle with his record label TIG Entertainment stalled his recording until he released a new mixtape in 2017 with a new label. Quan expressed his hope to keep the release of his album on schedule this summer. If his current charges result in a conviction, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Accusations of drug crimes could seriously disrupt a person's life, but legal representation could help a person navigate the criminal justice system. An attorney could look for opportunities to create a defense strategy by scrutinizing the actions of law enforcement, especially the search and seizure of materials. Violations of Constitutional rights might empower an attorney to challenge evidence and get charges reduced or dropped. An attorney could also appear in court with the person and offer advice before the person answers questions.
