Rapper Dusty Locane is now in jail after pleading guilty to two charges of criminal possession of a weapon connected to crimes perpetrated in 2019 and 2020.
The Brooklyn native posted on social media on Thanksgiving that he would be turning himself in on Nov. 30.
In a meme on his Instagram, he thanked his people for supporting him. The modified caption reads, “Been fightin [these] cases for damn near 4 [years],” the 23-year-old wrote in an Instagram caption. “Now I gotta go handle up ima take care of dis short bid n ima be bacc nine five times stronger ‼️”
Before after accepting he would be pleading guilty to the gun crimes, Dusty Locane took to Instagram to send a cryptic message.
In a caption-less meme that said, “Hell on earth and I’m chilling. The temperature is negative 95 degrees … from da Flu with love.”
Or … it might not be literal
On Monday, Dec. 5, released his new EP, “Catch Da Flu,” and dropped a video for the song “Way Bacc.”

Dusty Locane is a drill rapper out of the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, the same area that the late Pop Smoke grew up in. One interesting fact is that the two knew each other since they were children.
