Messy! Three 6 Mafia Rapper Arrested For Allegedly Beating His Fiancee

Rapper Crunchy Black from the popular group Three 6 Mafia has been arrested after he allegedly beat up his fiancee. The two were said to be in a hotel room in back in March when guests at the hotel heard loud noises coming from their room. Someone alerted the front desk and complained immediately. When an employee went to check to see what was going on, they found Crunchy Black’s fiancee locked in the bathroom. The fiancee explained she would only come out of the bathroom if CB would “stop beating her.” When the police arrived to the scene, they found a lot of blood on the furniture in the hotel room. When CB was arrested and booked, they found cocaine in his pocket– which left him being charged with two counts of domestic assault and one count of drug possession. The thing is he was a no-show in court so now he has a warrant out for his arrest. MESSSSSSSY! These rappers need to get their lives together ASAP Rocky. Like really.

(Video) Migos Respond To 2 Chainz Saying Their Flow Came From Three 6 Mafia

On his recently released track “Trap Back,” 2 Chainz took what could be interpreted as a shot at Migos, rapping, “Look at my car, how did it get on dem sixes/ This flow come from Drizzy, he got it from Migos, they got it from Three Six.” If you agree, it may not be a diss as much as it is stating a “fact.” However, the ATL trip certainly don’t agree. (Also to be noted – 2 Chainz was asked by MTV if he meant any disrespect, and he said he doesn’t but he just feels their flow comes from Memphis.) In response to Chainz’ claims, MTV caught up wit Quavo, TakeOff and OffSet for a few words…where they say Memphis is a quite a distance from their flow’s actual origin – Africa. The Migos break it down below. Do you agree?
