Not so good news for Lil Mama. The 27-year-old rapper has found herself behind bars. Early Thursday morning, she was arrested for driving over the speed limit and without a drivers license, according to TMZ.
Reportedly, she was driving in Harlem around 4 AM Thursday and was doing 38 in a 25, according to NYPD sources. After being pulled over, police ran her information and discovered license had been revoked. She was immediately taken into custody.
Lil Mama is still in custody. A day ago, she posted an inspiring Instagram message.
