Atlanta Rapper Lotto’s Gun Case Dismissed After Completing Diversion Program
Atlanta rapper Latto’s legal troubles seem to be a thing of the past as her year-long diversion program has ended, leading to the dismissal of her gun case. According to the L.A. County Superior Court Clerk, all charges against the rapper have been officially dismissed as she has successfully met all the program’s requirements. This includes completing a gun and safety course, performing 120 hours of community service, and refraining from firearms throughout the program.
In a statement to TMZ, Latto’s attorney Jamal Tooson expressed his satisfaction with the outcome and shared his excitement about his client’s ability to move forward with her career. Fans of the rapper became aware of the ordeal after she mentioned it in Mello Buckzz’s track, “Boom Pt. 2,” where she rapped, “I got locked up in the airport, goddamn forgot the gun.”
TMZ Hip Hop reported the initial story in May 2021 when Latto was arrested at LAX and charged with carrying a loaded firearm and possessing a concealed weapon. The rapper began her 12-month diversion program in April of last year, and she filled in her fans with details, revealing that she had a loaded Glock in her purse while attempting to board a private flight to ATL. She also claimed that the police held her for just a few hours before being released to perform at her concert.
With all program requirements now completed, Latto can put the case behind her and move forward. The rapper has been making waves in the music industry, and with her legal issues resolved, she can focus on her flourishing career.
