OMG Peezy has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during commission.
Police believe that the rapper, whose real name is LeParis Dade, is connected to the shooting that took place on set of Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg’s video in Atlanta last month that left three people injured.
Fulton County jail records show that Dade was arrested on March 1. The offense date is listed as Feb. 21, the same day as the shooting. The “Big Homie” rapper remains in custody with his bond set at $60,000.

Officers responded to shots fired at a scrap yard in southwest Atlanta to find a man grazed by a round of gunfire. Peter Cook, 39, was injured by debris. Two other victims–Antoine Blake, 25, and Vernon Moulder, 29–were shot and hospitalized at Grady Memorial Hospital. Both were said to be in stable condition.
After the shooting, Roddy Ricch addressed the incident on Twitter. “aint nobody shoot at me. we all good. im juss tryna feed the streets,” he tweeted.
42 Dugg also denied that he was hurt in the shooting. “Y’all stop that fake shit, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that,” Dugg said while speaking with Lil Baby on Instagram live. “Real talk, man. We good.”
Witnesses say around 50 people scattered when they heard gunshots. “Everyone started running, trying to get out. Or take cover, lot of places to take cover in there,” said Teresa Lakes, a medic who was on set to screen for COVID-19. “Anyone that was injured, I laid hands on ’em to make sure they were OK. Just glad it wasn’t a lot worse then it could have been.”
