Young Money's "Rack City" rapper Tyga has been racking up some driving violations that landed him in trouble over the weekend.


According to TMZ, the 22-year-old artist was arrested in Las Vegas after a routine stop for a traffic violation turned into the discovery of a warrant out for his arrest due to four other traffic-related incidents.  

Previous charges include driving without a license, registration violation and unlawful acts of financial responsibility.

Tyga, real name Michael Stevenson, was taken to Clark County Detention Center and released the following day.  

Stevenson was in Vegas for a tour show in support of his upcoming album Careless World: the Rise of the Last King, expected in stores January 24.

Tyga has yet to make a formal statement on the arrest.
