There's a lot of reasons for Tekashi to avoid Houston, but there is currently a warrant out for his arrest.


In legal documents obtained by TMZ, it looks like the rapper is wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old kid at the Galleria Mall on January 6. The alleged victim, Santiago Albarran, claims he ran into the controversial rapper at the mall and started recording him.

I'm still willing to sit down and have a conversation with u but not for one second do u get it misunderstood that u can get away with the disrespect in my city the way you've shown in others. We won't tolerate it.

Tekashi turned around and yelled at him to erase the video. Then Albarran claims Tekashi grabbed him by the neck and his crew surrounded him. Albarran deleted the video, but his family witnessed the event and reported it. Cops did see scratch marks on Albarrans neck.


Tekashi has been causing a lot of drama. He was recently banned from the Barclays Center when someone in his crew fired a weapon during an Adrien Broner boxing match.


Houston's not fond of the rapper right now either. Jay Prince Jr. had a little chat with him when Tekashi tried to get into a party and said he wasn't welcome in Houston.
