The rapper from Atlanta was free on bail after being indicted in August on eight felony charges, but his bail was revoked Wednesday, according to The Blast.

The "Slime Language" rapper, born Jeffrey Lamar Williams, was charged with possession and intent to distribute crystal meth, hydrocodone and marijuana, as well as possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam and coedine, plus possession of a firearm, all stemming from an arrest in 2017.

Williams was also arrested in August for possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle. He was celebrating his 27th birthday at his Slime Language mixtape release party at the Dave & Buster's sports restaurant in Hollywood when he was taken into custody.
