YoungBloodZ Rapper Sean P Arrested In Atlanta

Sean P, half of the southern rap duo YoungBloodZ was arrested for disorderly conduct in North-West Atlanta early Tuesday (December 22) morning following an incident at the nightclub, Tongue and Groove.

The30-year-old rapper was at the club hosting a release party for his latest mixtape, Cornerstore Da Mixtape, which reached the internet in October of this year. While the details surrounding the incident are still unknown, Sean P, whose real name is Sean Paul Joseph, was charged with both disorderly conduct and battery, but the latter was later dropped. He appeared in court on Tuesday (December 22) where his bond was set at $1,500 according to local channel, WSBT News.

Sean Paul, who changed his name to Sean P to distinguish himself from the Reggae artist of the same name, first gained recognition from the hip-hop community when he joined forces with fellow Atlanta rapper J-Bo to form the group YoungBloodZ. Together the two released hit singles such as U-Way in 1999, 85 in 2000, and Damn! from 2003, which is their only top 10 single to date.

Sean is currently working on his second solo project tentatively titled, Very Necessary, which was originally set to be released in 2008 under LaFace Records, but it will now hit stores in 2010 via Cornerstore Entertainment/Asylum/Warner Music Group.
