Lil Scrappy doesn't test well, at least when there are drugs involved. Scrappy just failed a court-ordered urine test and will enter rehab.

The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was in a Georgia courtroom today (May 22) where he was told that the test came up positive for weed. According to attorney Mawull Mel Davis, the 29-year-old is well aware of his addiction to Mary Jane and will enter a treatment facility prior to his next court hearing in June.

At this point, Scrappy is knee-deep in his legal turmoil, much of which involves his drug addiction.  

Aside from having his wages garnished to cover back child support, in March he allegedly switched out a urine sample which authorities discovered after the bodily fluid was cold to the touch. He refused to take another test, had a warrant issued for his arrest, and turned himself in, only to be released a day later.   

Making matters more dramatic, Scrappy's on-again off-again engagement to cast member Erica Dixon — mother to his young daughter — has run cold. The former couple's disputes often play out on the VH1 reality show, which continues to be a steady ratings hit for the cable network.

Despite his troubles, Scrappy is keeping the faith, tweeting, "Thank u God for ur love an [sic] grace," this morning.
