The report said an officer pulled over Luellen after he was spotted driving a Mercedes SUV with a “heavily tinted windshield.”

Luellen told the officer he had a Georgia driver’s license but didn’t have it with him, and a records check showed Luellen’s Florida license had been suspended since May 2019, the report said.

It was also stated in the report that Luellen had a handgun between his shoes and another on the floorboard behind the passenger seat. Both were fully loaded.

Luellen said he had a concealed weapons permit card, but a records check showed it had been suspended for unknown reasons, the report added.

“I advised Joshua that he was in violation of his CCW permit by having the firearms within reach and not secured in the glove box or encased in a box inside the vehicle,” the officer wrote in the report.

Luellen was arrested and booked into jail before being released on $5,500 bond, records showed.

The Atlanta native has worked with some of the biggest stars in hip hop including Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame. He also produced for artists including Kanye West and Jay-Z.
