California gangster rap star YG was arrested on Thursday and charged with felony robbery, according to TMZ.
Vegas police tell us … the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We’re told the guy told YG he’s not a real celeb … and casino’s surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.
We’re told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant — valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 — before taking off.
The crooner — whose real name is Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson — made headline during the 2016 presidential campaign with the release of his hit song “Fuck Donald Trump.”
The 28-year-old led a crowd of more than 20,000 fans singing the anti-Trump anthem at the Coachella Music Festival in April 2016.
