Rapper Zillakami was taken into police custody on his way to SXSW.
Yesterday, rapper ZillaKami was on his way to perform at South By Southwest when he was stopped at an airport and taken into police custody. While reports circled that he was caught carrying a machete, his management quickly clarified that Zilla was nabbed due to an existing arrest warrant. Speaking on his behalf, his management team took to Instagram to shed some light on the situation. "Zilla was not carrying a machete, he had a warrant out for his arrest and was taken while heading to SXSW," reads the statement. "He will be back ASAP hopefully in time for his show."
While fans wait for an update, Denzel Curry has weighed in with some words of encouragement. "Free My Twin Brother Zillakami," writes Zel, via Instagram. "Return Godzilla." The pair have previously collaborated on TA13OO track "Vengeance," and most recently on "Please Forgive" with Powers Pleasant and IDK. Keep an eye out on Zilla's IG page for further clarification on the arrest.
