The rapper, 33 – born Rakim Athelaston Mayers – was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department in connection with a November 2021 shooting in Hollywood.
He was taken into custody right after he and Rihanna returned from their vacation in Barbados on Wednesday, April 20.
The musician posted his $550,000 bail and was photographed being released from a Los Angeles jail that same day – just hours after he was arrested at LAX.
Los Angeles police were investigating Mayers after a man claimed the rapper shot him in the area of Selma and Argyle Avenues following an argument.

Mayers is accused of approaching an acquaintance on the street around 10:15pm on November 6 and firing a handgun at him three or four times.
One of the bullets reportedly grazed the victim’s left hand and he later sought medical treatment.
After the alleged shooting Mayers and two other men, who he had reportedly been walking with, fled the scene.
Authorities collaborated with the victim and were ultimately able to name Mayers as a suspect in the shooting.

Police arrested the rapper with the help of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The case will soon be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration.
The couple are currently expecting their first child, and the singer reportedly cancelled her baby shower because of the arrest.
‘Rihanna was there when Rocky was arrested and has been crying non-stop,’ a source claimed to The Sun.
‘She’s heavily pregnant and these are very serious accusations, it’s a nightmare scenario for her.’
‘It was meant to be Rihanna’s baby shower in LA on Wednesday night but they had to cancel.
The source continued: ‘Rihanna was very, very upset and stressed by Rocky’s arrest It’s not the best time for her to be on such an emotional rollercoaster.’
