ET has confirmed that the 29-year-old rapper, whose real name is Keenon Jackson, was released from custody on Friday night, shortly after 9 p.m. PT.
Deputy James Nagao of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department told ET that they arrested YG at 4 a.m. on Friday and obtained a warrant to search his home as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. He was then taken to Men's Central Jail in L.A. where he was booked for robbery, and had a bail set at $250,000.
His arraignment has been set for Tuesday in Compton Court.
YG's attorney, Joe Tacopina, had told ET that they were hoping to have the rapper released from custody as soon as possible.
"We are posting bail. Quite frankly I suspect the timing of this was not coincidental. I think the whole purpose of this was to prevent him from doing that tribute to Nipsey [Hussle] on Sunday at the GRAMMYs," Tacopina said. "There’s no reason he should not be able to perform because he’s going to be able to post bail. The district attorney’s not even involved in these charges. It’s just a police case right now. The timing is more than little suspect."
