42 Dugg’s newest arrest comes after a litany of legal issues. He was arrested in March 2020 on federal firearms charges for illegally possessing a firearm. He was caught again in August 2020, barely two months after eluding authorities.

42 Dugg and his legal team began negotiating a plea deal for the gun accusation, which carries a potential penalty of ten years. He was able to escape jail time and receive probation as a result of the plea deal. However, his probation was overturned shortly after, and he was sentenced to six months in prison and two years of supervised release.

The 26-year-old singer reportedly requested a fight with 6ix9ine in exchange for a $500k payday. After Dugg chastised him for “ambushing” Lil Durk’s lookalike, the two rappers traded internet shots.

On April 12, Dugg was supposed to surrender and go to a West Virginia prison, but he didn’t. He now faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
