Dro was scheduled to appear before a judge on felony theft charges stemming from a March 2015 arrest. The 37-year-old rapper allegedly stole stripper Robyn Fly’s Cadillac CTS and was arrested for theft by conversion of leased or rented personal property.
Dro has been a no show in court before. Last time, the Atlanta rhymer appeared four hours late to a hearing and the judge issued an arrest warrant with bond set at $15,000. This time they weren’t so lenient. No bond was issued.
Dro, who signed with T.I.’s Grand Hustle label back in 2004 has been making headlines more so for his legal issues than his music. The 2008 XXL Freshman alumni dropped his fourth album Da Reality Show in 2015, his first effort since 2013’s High Times.
A day before he was supposed appear in court, Dro went on his Instagram account and posted a photo of himself along with the caption “new me.” He later posted a video of himself listening to James Brown’s classic 1973 song, “The Big Payback.”
Hopefully, Young Dro can clear all of his legal issues and get back to the music.
