MEMPHIS, Tenn. — U.S. Marshals in Tennessee arrested a Georgia rapper who was wanted for nearly three months after violating his probation by melting off his court-ordered ankle monitor.

Kwame Khalil Brown was arrested by a U.S. Marshal’s task force Thursday on a fugitive from justice warrant. The 27-year-old Atlanta-based rapper goes by the name Foogiano and is represented by Gucci Mane.

The two are also involved in an ongoing wrongful death lawsuit stemming from a fatal shooting at a South Carolina nightclub where Brown was performing.

A spokesman with the U.S. Marshals said Brown was wanted out of Georgia for felony violation of probation warrants for burglary and firearms charges.

A Marshals task force located Brown at a residence at the 1700 block of Glenview in Memphis. He was taken into custody without incident on March 11, the spokesman said.

Brown was listed in the Shelby County Jail roster as having posted $25,000 bond the day after his arrest.
