Brooklyn drill rapper 22Gz was arrested Sunday on attempted murder charges upon landing at JFK airport.
Law enforcement officials said 22Gz had been in Atlanta since the shooting and likely thought the coast was clear for his Sunday Summer Jam performance.
The rapper was forced to forfeit his appearance, he was supposed to be a part of Hot 97’s DJ Drewski’s set.
The arrest stems from a March 6 shooting inside a Brooklyn party hall where 3 people were shot. One of the victims ID’d 22Gz as the shooter and gave a detailed description of the “Twirlanta” rapper.
Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez slammed 22Gz saying: “This shooting not only wounded the victim but endangered the lives of everyone in a crowded club. Senseless gang rivalries fuel much of the gun violence in our communities and I remain committed to vigorously prosecuting anyone who engages in this criminal conduct.”
In addition to the attempted murder charge, 22Gz is facing 2nd-degree assault and weapons charges for a pistol, along with a 1st-degree reckless endangerment charge.
In 2017, 22Gz spent 5 months in jail after being accused of killing a man in Miami Beach over a parking spot before the charges were dropped.
