By Tuesday, Scrappy’s mother Momma Dee went on offense, calling the entire ordeal unfair. While he was on probation for a 2008 marijuana arrest, she broke down the reasons for his recent violation.
“I’m tired of the judicial system doing legalized pimpin’. What’s going on is he failed to change his address,” Momma Dee said. “He broke no [law] as far as committing anything he just been so busy between the show and traveling and touring he forgot to tell them his change of address.”
