Metro Marrs arrested after splashing $10,000 at high school graduation
Quality Control Music's new signees, Metro Marrs, has been arrested and detained by police over his 'cash rain' stunt at his high school graduation ceremony.
The overjoyed rapper who graduated from Langston Hughes High School in Atlanta on Friday last week, celebrated by pulling out $10,000 in cash and throwing it all over the stage.
As expected, his fellow graduating classmates went wild cheering him on as a money picking frenzy occurred.
However, the school management, who did not find his action funny, invited the police immediately.
According to TMZ, police handcuffed the 18-year-old and escorted him out of the commencement ceremony.
He was detained for attempting to 'start a riot and disorderly conduct', and ticketed for the offence.
Video of his stunt went viral on social media where fans shared their support and praise for the "Bye Felicia" hitmaker.
"I wonder if his major was marketing…Either way this was genius!" a fan wrote.
Speaking with gossip site, TSR l, Metro explained that he hadn't seen his fellow classmates in person all year due to the pandemic and this was his way of giving back to some of them who may not have received money for their graduation.
"I was creating a moment that would be memorable," said Metro, who waited until every student walked before throwing the money.
"I had to do that for the last time. Everybody was lit! We graduating high school!"
Metro Marrs is in the same record label as rap group, Migos.
