G-Funk! Where Rhythm is Life and Life is Rhythm!

(AP)Rapper Warren G was arrested Sunday on a drug-related charge after police pulled over the car he was riding in.

The 35-year-old rap artist, whose real name is Warren Griffin III, was arrested shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sunday in Hollywood after the car he was a passenger in was pulled over for a red light violation, police said. Marijuana was found inside the vehicle, said police Officer Karen Smith.

Both Griffin and the driver, Ryan Butler, were booked for investigation of possession of a controlled substance. They each posted $20,000 bail and were released.

Attempts to reach Griffin or a representative Sunday night were unsuccessful.

Griffin was nominated for a Grammy in 1995. He also was arrested in 1996 for carrying a loaded assault weapon in his truck.
