Brooklyn drill rapper who sells gold 22Gz was arrested for attempted murder early Sunday morning when he landed at JFK airport.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … 22Gz had been in Atlanta since the shooting and may have thought the coast was clear for her Sunday Summer Jam performance…but the police caught him at the airport.
The snafu caused him to lose his appearance, as he was supposed to be part of Hot 97. DJ Drewskiis defined.
The arrest stems from a March 6 shooting at a Brooklyn party hall where 3 people were shot … and police say one of the victims identified 22Gz as the shooter and provided officers with a detailed description of the rapper “Twirlanta”.

Despite the triple shot… we’re told the injuries aren’t considered serious.
Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez torn in 22Gz telling TMZ: “This shooting not only injured the victim, but endangered the lives of everyone in a crowded club. Senseless gang rivalries fuel much of the gun violence in our communities and I remain committed to vigorously prosecuting anyone who engages in this criminal behavior.”
In addition to the attempted murder charge, 22Gz faces charges of 2nd degree assault and weapons for a pistol, as well as a 1st degree reckless endangerment charge.
This is not 22Gz’s first contact with the law. In 2017, he spent 5 months in prison after being accused of killing a man in Miami Beach in a parking space before the charges were dropped.
