The rapper was pulled over for a traffic violation in Burbank, Calif., when officers found that he had a warrant for driving with a suspended license. Cops then searched his vehicle, found a bottle of the prescription codeine, and arrested the rapper for possession of a controlled substance.

Hussle (real name: Ermias Asghedom) was later released after posting $1,000 bail.
