Things are not looking up for YG right now.

In a report published by the TMZ today (July 18), the rapper's Hollywood Hills home was raided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. This is in connection to the shooting that left an innocent bystander dead.

Sources say that the house is leased by YG who was not arrested nor present during the time of the raid. Deputies obtained a signed search warrant that allowed them to enter the 29-year-old's property.

As previously reported, someone inside an SUV, registered underneath YG's name, fired multiple gunshots. The incident, which took place on July 3, resulted in the fatality of a pedestrian. TMZ reports that four men have been handcuffed at the scene and placed in patrol cars.

Earlier this month, YG did his best to clear his name. He stated that he was nowhere near the scene of the crime when the shootout happened. His alibi is that he was at the studio creating music.

"I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood," he said. "I was there until after midnight on the 4th of July and didn't learn of these events until after they happened."

On a more positive note, YG recently welcomed his second child, Vibe Jackson. Back in March, the "Go Loko" rapper shared that he and Catelyn Sparks were expecting their second child in July. Vibe is officially the little sister to Harmony, YG and Spark's three-year-old daughter.

In addition to welcoming a new child, YG is set to hit the road with Meek Mill, Future, Mustard and Megan Thee Stallion for the "Legendary Nights" tour. The three-month trek will begin next month in St. Louis.

We will provide more updates as the case continues to unfold.
