ATL rapper Dae Dae was arrested Thursday after being pulled over & having weed & a stolen gun on him.
It appears Atlanta rapper Dae Dae, who’s best known for his hit song “What U Mean,” was arrested Thursday in Greene County, Georgia on stolen gun and drug charges.
According to multiple reports, including ATL's Fox 5 & AJC, Dae Dae, whose real name is Marquavis Goolsby, was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over on I-20 for going 92 mph in a 70 mph zone. During the traffic stop, authorities found some weed & guns in the vehicle, the latter of which was stolen.
“While the vehicle was pulling over, the deputy observed the front seat passenger crawl into the back seat,” Capt. Lee Stancill said. “After the vehicle stopped, the deputy made contact with the occupants of the vehicle and immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the car.”
The gun, which authorities later found was stolen, was also spotted in plain view in the passenger floorboard of the vehicle. However, Dae Dae claimed he didn’t know the gun was stolen. Following a search of the vehicle, another gun was then found under the passenger seat, but that was stolen. “That gun was not reported stolen that we know of at this time,” Stancill said. “The case is still under investigation.”
Police say that Dae Dae tried disposing his weed in the backseat of the squad car while on the way to the police station. Having been caught, he was charged with crossing the guardlines with contraband authorities said, to go along with his drug & weapon charge.
As previously mentioned, Dae Dae was the passenger in the vehicle and the driver, Dontavious McCray, was also arrested and charged of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
