RUMOURS that drill rapper Digga D has been arrested in Dubai following a stabbing have been denied by the police.
Rhys Herbert – AKA Digga D – from West London has been in the United Emirates where he has filmed a music video.
Unsubstantiated rumours started circulating on Twitter last night that alleged an unknown British rapper stabbed someone in Dubai
Then people began speculating that Herbert had been arrested by police following the alleged attack.
He is no stranger to trouble and was jailed last year for his role in planning a terrifying machete and knife brawl with a rival gang.
But Dubai police insisted he had not been arrested.
A spokesperson said: “Dubai police have no one by that name currently in detention.”
In the early hours of today, Digga D took to social media and tweeted a clip from a video of his.
In that, there are full of references to gang violence gun gestures and a reference to “one shot” of a Glock gun which “leaves your head back-spinning”.
The rapper has come under fire for his tracks which some say glorify gang violence.
Herbert himself was released from prison in May last year after being sentenced to two and a half years for his role in a machete brawl in front of shoppers in central London.
In a landmark ruling, the judge banned Herbert and other members of the 1011 street gang from making videos that glorified or incited violence without police approval under a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).
New music releases must be approved by the Met police
But while cannot specifically refer to real-life violence or rivalries, the gun-obsessed musician can refer to violence generally.
