The artist, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams and who lives in Buckhead, was charged with possession of a Schedule II substance and a window-tint violation, records said.

He was arrested Sunday in Brookhaven. Williams, known professionally for an unconventional delivery and collaborations with big names like Gucci Mane, remained in jail Wednesday afternoon.

The rapper, 26, was also arrested last year at Atlanta’s Lenox Square Mall on a failure to appear warrant and in 2015 on accusations he threatened to shoot a Perimeter Mall security guard.
