Miami – Fredo Bang whose real name is Frederick Givens and Lit Yoshi whose real name is Miyoshi Edwards are arrested in Miami on a warrant from Louisiana.
Two rappers and roommates named Fredo Bang and Lit Yoshi from Baton Rouge-based group, Top Boy Gorillas or TBG, have been arrested by federal agents in Miami this week.
Fredo Bang, real name Frederick Givens was arrested on July 22 on a fugitive Louisiana warrant, illegal use of a weapon, and property damage. It is not clear what the warrant was for, possibly a breach of parole. He was arrested in 2016 for allegedly shooting a man during an argument outside an apartment complex in Baton Rouge.
Rapper Lit Yoshi was arrested on July 21 on the same Louisiana warrant. The Advocate state that in 2020, Yoshi fired at a vehicle in Baton Rouge and killed one of the three occupants.
‘The Bang Man’ or Fredo Bang was scheduled to perform in Rolling Loud – a hip-hop festival in Miami Gardens on Friday. He is now facing extradition.
Both rappers live together in Miami. TBG has a longstanding feud with the NBA Youngboys’ “Never Broke Again” crew.
Additionally, according to Miami Herald, Miami-Dade County is seeking two years for interrogation after rapper Youngboy whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, and his crew were set ablaze by a passing car outside the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach.
Youngboy’s girlfriend was shot and wounded, three bystanders were grazed and a rental car employee, 43-year-old Mohamed Jardi, was killed by a stray bullet in the street.
No one has been charged in the Miami-Dade shooting case.
Prosecutors believe that Bang and the TBG group were involved. A judge in Louisiana ruled in February that evidence of the shooting case could be used in his forthcoming trial against Edwards.
