Bankroll Freddie just released new music last week.
Quality Control rapper Bankroll Freddie was arrested in Arkansas on Thursday, according to the Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office (April 14). Freddie Gladney Bankroll’s real name was taken into custody on Thursday night arrested on multiple charges, including resisting arrest/refusal to submit to arrest/active or passive refusal, “simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms,” and a felony count of possession of a schedule VI controlled substance with the intent to deliver, speeding, and an additional possession charge, according to a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s office.
The specifics of the drug and firearms counts were unavailable at the time of publication. While a Sheriff’s office spokesperson could not confirm that Gladney was the rapper known as Bankroll Freddie — who they said was still being held in custody with no bond at press time — the photo and age (27) in the arrest record matched Gladney’s information; a spokesperson for Gladney had not responded to Billboard’s request for comment at press time.
After releasing his single “Drip Like This” and the Saved By the Bales mixtape in 2019, Freddie joined the Quality Control team 2019. His From Trap to Rap album, which featured Lil Baby, Lil Yachty, Moneybagg Yo, and Young Dolph, was released in 2020. He released the 2021 single “Add It Up” after signing with Motown Records in 2020, followed by the Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “Pop It” from his 2021 album Big Bank.
Last week, the rapper released the single “Picking Sides,” which featured Icewear Vezzo, and previewed the arrival of his From Trap to Rap 2 album on April 22. Watch the video below.
