Hilcrhyme's KATSU Arrested For Marijuana Possession + Group Dropped From Label

DJ KATSU, a member of the hip hop duo Hilcrhyme, has been arrested on charges of marijuana possession.

The arrest occurred on December 1, and reports began to surface over the weekend.

According to officials, 4 joints were found at KATSU's company office, and one bag of marijuana was found at his personal home in Niigata.

Hilcrhyme was on a fan club tour when KATSU was arrested. The duo's agency cancelled the remainder of the tour due to his arrest over the weekend.

On December 4, Universal Music announced that it had cancelled its recording contract with Hilchryme as a group, and cancelled its management contract with KATSU.

Effective immediately, the company will no longer be shipping Hilchryme's physical products, and is no longer distributing the group's content digitally.

Group member TOC will remain with Universal Music as a soloist.

    Unfortunately, whether he wants to or not, deserves it or not, he broke the law. Marijuana is illegal in many countries in Asia - Japan included - and is a serious offense. We can sit and argue about the pros and cons of marijuana, but at the end of the day, he broke the law and that's what matters. As for flying to Jamaica, he will make the situation worse. There might be a court case on his hands right now, and you can not flee the country if you've committed a crime that is considered that serious. Just so you know, criminal offense for possession of marijuana in Japan is a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and a fine. Yes, he may be able to afford a bail, but his reputation his now ruined.

    I don't know why you automatically think of Jamaica when marijuanna is involved (you know when the substance is legal in several places on this earth and in several parts of the US)....but ok....

    Please read the article or even research a little bit about Japanese laws. He broke the law in Japan, a country that still classifies marijuanna as a controlled substance and if you're caught with it you will face charges. Not to mention the social impact of getting arrested in Japan for stuff like this. Not only will his label drop him, but fans aren't going to forgive him for "sticking out amongst the other nails" like this.
