Mozzy was originally arrested in January 21 when officers pulled him over in Culver City, California on a traffic stop.

Once they caught a whiff of “burnt marijuana,” they did a search of the car and discovered a Glock 26, 16 rounds of 9mm ammunition and a “personal use” amount of marijuana. He was booked and released after posting $35,000 bail.

Mozzy is just a week out from releasing his seventh studio album Survivor’s Guilt. Released via Yo Gotti’s CMG, the 15-track project featured guest verses from Roddy Ricch and Shordie Shordie, as well as fellow CMG labelmates EST Gee, Blac Youngsta and Moneybagg Yo.
