G-Eazy Breaks Silence on Cocaine & Assault Arrest

G-Eazy is speaking out for the first time since his assault and cocaine arrest in Sweden. Taking to Instagram, the “No Limit” rapper opened up about the bust, saying he’s sorry and embarrassed about the ordeal.

“Grateful & blessed to be free & safe,” he wrote. “Happy to be in Copenhagen tonight doing what I love most. Embarrassed & apologetic beyond words about the incident, but above all I’m so fucking grateful they let me go, craziest experience of my life, awful night with a lot of bad luck and some even worse decisions.”

Gerald was arrested for reportedly assaulting a security guard at a nightclub in Sweden. Afterwards, authorities allegedly found 1.5 grams of cocaine in his pocket. He did not have to post bail since that isn’t a requirement in Sweden, but he was hit with $9,000 in fines, as well as restitution to the bouncer, according to TMZ.

Now, G-Eazy says he’s grateful to be out. “I’m grateful as fuck to be a free man, back on tour performing for the fans,” he added. “Thank you to everyone who’s held me down along the way and supported this journey. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. Love.”

The Bay Area MC is currently on the European leg of his “Beautiful & Damned Tour” with Yung Pinch and Stefflon Don. It launched May 2 in Stockholm, just before the arrest, and it will conclude June 5 in Dublin.
