Famous Dex To Serve Jail Time Following String Of Domestic Violence Arrests

LOS ANGELES, CA – The hands of justice have seemingly

caught up with “Japan” rapper Famous Dex and they’re

placing him behind bars for the time being.


Akademiks intercepted a police report on Friday

(September 10) that specified the Chicago native had

been detained by the Los Angeles Police Department

Valley Jail Section following his March and June arrests

that detailed a litany of charges, including domestic

violence and gun possession.


While the police booking document cites Famous Dex

was officially sentenced on September 1 to 364 days of

lockup, he also has a projected release date of November

24, allowing for the Rich The Kid and 300 Records’

prized artist to potentially have a Happy Thanksgiving

2021 if all goes well.


The past year has been tumultuous for Famous Dex, who

saw his last studio album — 2020’s Diana — come and go

without any charting or certification.


June’s hearing was actually ordered after the 28-year-

old rapper was arrested for violating a protection order

regarding a different October 2020 domestic violence

charge. Similar to many of his arrests, he was brought

up on a heaping load of charges: corporal injury

domestic violence, threatening a domestic partner,

exhibiting a firearm, inflicting bodily injury, dissuading

a victim from reporting a crime, defacing property, and

illegal possession of a firearm.


In addition to his legal woes, substance abuse has also

plagued Famous Dex’s fluctuating career, with things

tragically hitting the wall in 2019 when he suffered

several public seizures — including one while

performing in Los Angeles, the same city that now

recognizes him as a prisoner.


As of press time, the “Pick It Up” rapper’s Instagram

account has been completely wiped clean, leaving only a

link to his 2021 SoundCloud album Say What You Want.
