UK drill rapper Digga D has admitted to his drug charges following a police raid which was streamed live online.

On Wednesday (February 21), the rapper’s home was entered by police while he was in the middle of a broadcast on Instagram Live.

In the now-deleted video, the 23-year-old London artist – real name Rhys Angelo Emile Herbert – could be heard shouting at his property in Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln. Multiple police vehicles, police dogs and drones were utilised in the raid, which is said to have lasted for two hours.

The rapper subsequently appeared at Lincoln Magistrates Court on February 22 and was charged with “being concerned in the supply of cannabis and fraudulent evasion of the prohibition of the importation”, as reported by The Lincolnite.
