Popular American rapper, Fredrick Dewon Thomas Givens II, known professionally as Fredo Bang, has been arrested in Miami together with his associate and fellow Louisiana rapper Lit Yoshi.
Fredo Bang has been on parole following a 2016 shooting in Batton Rouge and Lit Yoshi has a current attempted murder charge in St. Tammany Parish.
Reports say, was taken into custody Thursday after officers searched his South Florida home, where they allegedly found firearms and a stolen vehicle outside the residence.
He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center for parole violations stemming from a 2015 shooting in his hometown of Baton Rouge.
Fredo and Yoshi were also being investigated in connection to a shooting involving YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who has feuded with Fredo and Yoshi’s Top Boy Gorilla gang. The incident occurred in 2019 at the Trump Beach Resort in South Florida, where two rival rap groups reportedly got into a confrontation resulting in gunfire.
