Rich Homie Quan was arrested on his way to a show in Georgia Saturday (May 27). At the time of publication, Quan and his friends are reportedly still being detained in Jefferson County Jail.

TMZ reports that Quan's car was stopped at a police checkpoint when the cops arrested the rapper and five others. Reportedly, the police suspected members of the group to be in possession of a stolen gun along with controlled substances, namely marijuana and ecstasy.

Quan (born Dequantes Lamar) has yet to be charged.

In February, the rapper announced that he'd signed a deal with Motown and assured fans that album would be forthcoming this coming spring.

“First and foremost, I would like to thank God for this amazing opportunity,” said Quan in a press release. “I’m excited to be a part of a building that has such great history in music. I look forward to this new chapter in my life and giving my fans the best I have to offer.”

Also in February, Quan settled a legal case against by a bouncer who claimed that the rapper viciously assaulted him outside of a club.
