American rapper, Metro Marrs has been arrested and detained by police for ‘making it rain’ at his high school graduation ceremony.
The ‘Control’ rapper who graduated from Langston Hughes High School in Atlanta, celebrated by pulling out $10,000 in cash and throwing it all over the stage.
His fellow graduating classmates went wild and cheered him as a wild money picking frenzy occurred but school management was not pleased with the action.
Police handcuffed the 18-year-old and escorted him out of the commencement ceremony.
The young artiste was detained for attempting to ‘start a riot and disorderly conduct’, and ticketed for the offense.
Marrs was reportedly detained for several hours. It’s unclear if he is facing any charges related to the incident.
Speaking with gossip site, TSR l, the rapper explained that he hadn’t seen his fellow classmates in person all year due to the pandemic and this was his way of giving back to some of them who may not have received money for their graduation.
“I was creating a moment that would be memorable.
“I had to do that for the last time. Everybody was lit! We graduating high school!” he said.
Metro Marrs is in the same record label as rap group, Migos.
