According to PageSix, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood division booked the “Rack City” rapper — real name Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.

He was later released after posting $50,000 in bail.

According to TMZ, Swanson showed up at his house at 3 a.m. Monday “shouting” on his doorstep and seemingly intoxicated, at which point he let her in and the situation escalated.
