NYC rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie arrested in London before appearance

Bronx-born rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was forced to cancel his performance at a British festival on Saturday after he was arrested by London police for an incident that allegedly took place two years ago.

It is not clear what the hip-hop star was accused of, but he confirmed that he was taken into custody when he took to Instagram to apologize to his fans for the canceled performance.

“SMH sorry to everyone who came out to see me wirelessly, the London police locked me in before I went on stage for something I was accused of 2 years ago,” wrote the rapper, whose real name is Artist Dubose , in the post. “I’m ok and I will do my best to make up with you.”

An instagram video appears to show officers arresting Dubose at the festival. Official charges have not been revealed.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police told the Daily Mail that there was an incident in which a 25-year-old man was arrested at the festival, but the rapper was not named in the statement.

“On Saturday, September 11, a 25-year-old man was arrested at the Wireless Festival in Crystal Palace Park,” police told the outlet. “The arrest was made by Met police officers at the request of Greater Manchester Police.”

“The man was released on bail to attend a Greater Manchester police station at a later date.”

According to Sun, festival organizers hoped “the rapper would be able to show up on Sunday, but he did not perform.

This is the second time in twelve months that Dubose has been arrested after law enforcement searched his home in New Jersey and found an arsenal of guns and marijuana.

He is expected to release his fourth album later this year.
