Chicago rapper Lil Reese was arrested over the weekend after police found 24 grams of marijuana on him.
According to the police report, Lil Reese (Tavares Taylor) was stopped by the police after he was seen standing next to what police called known “gang members”.
Officers approached the area they had been standing at and Reese began to walk away. As he walked away he pulled out a bad with a green substance inside.
Police then searched Reese and found $2,090 cash along with the weed. Officers asked him where he got all his money from and according to the police report, Reese replied; “It’s mine, I got a little weed. So what?”
Reese, who is a close affiliate with Chief Keef went on to say, “There’s serious crime out there. This ain’t a big deal. I’m gangster.”
Reese has been arrested three times the past 4 months. Just a few weeks ago, he was arrested for misdemeanor theft for using false documentation to acquire a BMW.
Reese is currently being held in custody on $10,000 bail.
