Lil Baby was picked up by French authorities and are currently being detained. James Harden was with him at the time. This all stems from finding marijuana in their car.

Marijuana shouldn’t be a big deal, and it isn’t in a lot of states within the USA now. The problem is that Lil Baby was in Paris. The medicine is still considered an illicit drug there and they don’t want it around.

This is a very new situation, so there are not very many details at this time. According to multiple reports, Lil Baby and James Harden were swarmed by police after weed was found. Video from the scene shows the two getting carted off by authorities. Harden said he didn’t understand what was happening.

It is reported that Lil Baby and two others were arrested on the weed-related charges after 20 grams of Mary Jane was found in the car. Request for comment was turned down by the Paris Police Department, because this is an active investigation.


If convicted, Lil Baby can face up to a year behind bars in France. It is reported that the rapper was already released from police custody and James Harden was never officially arrested. We will continue monitoring this situation here at Thirsty.
