Jeezy is a free man. The “Seen It All” rapper was released from a California jail late Thursday night after posting bail, according to multiple news sources.

The five other individuals who were arrested along with Jeezy in Irvine, Calif., on Sunday were also released.

Steve Carless, president of Jeezy's label, CTE, confirmed the reports to Billboard.

"Young Jeezy has posted bail for all six people [that were arrested],” said Carless. “He will be released tonight in the next hour or so. A full statement is coming soon."

Da Snowman was among the six people arrested on Sunday after police claimed they found an AK-47 rifle on the rapper’s tour bus. The incident happened two days after a 38-year-old man was shot and killed backstage at the Under the Influence tour, which Jeezy is co-headlining with Wiz Khalifa.

Jeezy pleaded not guilty to the weapons charge and is due back in court on September 5.

The rapper’s fifth studio album, Seen It All, is set for release on September 2.
