How did Desiigner prepare for his New York Fashion Week performance? By going on a Gucci shopping spree, of course.

The 19-year-old rapper, whose real name is Sidney Royel Selby III, spent 36 hours in jail after authorities arrested him after a traffic dispute near the Lincoln Tunnel. When police pulled over Desiigner’s SUV, they allegedly found prescription drugs, marijuana and a gun inside the vehicle, according to E! News. He was released on Saturday, after prosecutors decided not to pursue further legal action against him.

Hours after his release, Desiigner and fellow rapper Tyga decided to celebrate by going on a shopping spree together, spending thousands of dollars at Gucci. And later that night, the “Panda” singer went on to perform at the Alexander Wang after-party.

It’s safe to say Desiigner came out of the big house in style.
