Big Boi was arrested yesterday in Miami on three counts of drug possession and one count of possession of drug paraphenalia.

According to Pitchfork , law enforcement officials say Big Boi was found to be in possession of MDMA, ecstasy and Viagra, with no prescription for the latter.

Last night, he tweeted “Fresh Out Baby !”, indicating that he was not being held over the charges. His attorney has stated “I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.”

Despite the controversy, Cutty dropped a new track featuring Big Boi this morning called Gyrlz – listen to it here .
