Following reports of his arrest, Sheck Wes provides his fans with a status update proving that he's no longer in custody.
Earlier today, it was reported that Cactus Jack signee Sheck Wes, most known for his breakout single "Mo Bamba," was arrested in New York. Upon conducting a routine traffic stop, TMZ claimed that police discovered an undisclosed amount of marijuana as well as a loaded 9mm handgun. Though the charges were said to be felony level, Sheck's attorney later confirmed that the rapper had been released from custody, with his case being delayed to August.

And while Sheck himself hasn't exactly provided thorough commentary on the whole debacle, at least in an official capacity, he did take to social media to provide a status update of sorts. Sharing a picture of himself masked up in the streets of New York, Sheck seemed bamboozled by the narrative of his arrest. "The Scouts not locked up wtf," he writes, putting an end to any misconceptions that might have occurred.
While it's likely that this may develop further in August, provided the charges actually end up sticking, it would appear that Sheck isn't exactly fazed in the slightest. Out of sight out of mind, as they say. Check out Sheck's update below, and keep an eye out for more news on the man's upcoming music -- last we saw, Sheck was holding it down alongside Travis Scott, Don Tolliver, Luxury Tax and Chase B as the JACKBOYS.
