YFN Lucci Released From Jail on $500,000 Bond, Strict Conditions

YFN Lucci has been released on bond following his arrest for murder.

The Atlanta rapper (real name Rayshawn Bennett) was booked into Fulton County jail last month in connection with a Dec. 10 shooting, which left one man dead and another injured.

An “exhaustive investigation” by the Atlanta Police Department labeled him as a suspect, prompting Lucci to turn himself in.

Lucci is currently out after being granted bail, with strict conditions attached.

In a statement from Lucci’s lawyer, his reps negotiated with the prosecution a $500,000 bond which was finalized this morning (Jan. 8), ahead of a bond motion on Tuesday.

Bennett was released shortly before 4pm. The bond conditions include that he must surrender his passport and wear a GPS ankle monitor, his lawyer explains.

The next court date has yet to be set. The state “will have to present the case to a grand jury if they so choose,” attorney Drew Findling tells Billboard via email.

In January, a video announcement from Atlanta PD confirmed that Lucci faces the charges of felony murder, aggravated assault and participation in criminal street gang activity as well as possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Lucci was featured on OMB Peezy’s “Hustle,” which hit streaming services a week after the alleged shooting and dropped his Wish Me Well 3 mixtape on Dec. 4.

Shortly before surrendering to authorities, Lucci rolled out a new music video with Mozzy for their collaboration “Rolled On.”
