Kush, producer for YG Entertainment subsidiary The Black Label, has been booked for buying and using cocaine, according to a report by Hankook Ilbo.
Reports state that earlier this week on December 12, Kush was apprehended by police while he was trying to pick up 1 gram of cocaine from a mailbox in an apartment complex in Bangbae-dong. During police questioning, Kush said that he has been suffering from depression and admitted to using the drug, saying, “I met the dealer through social media, and I’ve since bought and used [cocaine] two times.” Police requested an arrest warrant for Kush on December 13, but it was denied the next day. A source from the police said, “After additional investigation into the crime and the sales routes, we will decide whether we want to try again for an arrest warrant.” Kush’s agency, The Black Label, said they are in the process of confirming the news and will return with an official statement.
So nothing is official yet, but he reportedly admits it to police and everything. Of course, if he was caught in the situation as described, that was about the only thing he could do.
Most importantly, he loses all credibility with me. How are you gonna be named Kush and not give me the satisfaction of writing an article full of weed puns and are instead busted for coke? Fuck you, man.
Police have now confirmed the report.
On December 15, Bangbae-dong Station Police confirmed earlier reports that stated Kush was apprehended while he was attempting to acquire 1 gram of cocaine from an unmarked mailbox in the neighborhood. The police confirmed, “It’s true that Kush was booked without arrest for buying and using cocaine. The cocaine was hidden at an agreed-upon location, and the buyer (Kush) was caught as he came to obtain the drugs.” It was also revealed Kush claimed he’s been suffering from depression, and he confessed to using cocaine on two occasions, presumably to combat the illness.
