Rap News Rundown: Lil Durk, Yung Berg, Freddie Gibbs, Chris Brown, Drake

Tyga and Drake go after each other on Twitter in this week's Rap News Rundown.

Last week, Lil Durk was arrested by Chicago police and charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon. According to reports, police entered the residence in connection with an unrelated homicide investigation and found two loaded .45-caliber handguns on a kitchen island near where Durk was standing. He allegedly told police, "I got those pipes 'cause (expletive) always be tryin' to take my bands."

The presiding judge in the case determined that the Chi-town rapper violated the terms of his probation. At Lil Durk's initial hearing, his attorney pointed out there were several other people in the house at the time.

Yung Berg was arrested last week in NYC for assaulting girlfriend Masika Tucker. In the criminal complaint, Tucker accuses the onetime rapper of hitting her, dragging her by her hair, pinning her against a wall and grabbing her by her throat. He is charged with three counts of assault and one count of harassment.
