At the end of 2020, Jacksonville rapper, SpotemGottem blew up, with his “Beat Box” single. That soon earned remixes with DaBaby and Pooh Shiesty, and it skyrocketed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Five different versions ended up being released with more artists, as the original peaked at number 12 on the Hot 100.
Now, SpotemGottem is running into some serious legal woes. According to NBC Miami, he is facing felony gun charges. These include, including aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and accessory after the fact to a felony. He ended up being arrested by U.S Marshals, on Thursday, at his hotel room.
On Friday though, SpotemGottem was also released from jail, on $18,500 bond. The rapper initially had a warrant out since last month, after he and friends broke a parking garage gate, with their car. When someone tried to stop them, SpotemGottem aimed a semi-automatic weapon at them.
In May, SpotemGottem put out his “Most Wanted” mixtape, which contained “Beat Box 3” feat. DaBaby. 12 tracks were included in total. He is scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami next weekend, but we will see if that will remain the plan.
