BlocBoy JB’s Looming Arrest Makes Memphis Grizzlies Scrap Jaren Jackson Jr. Bobblehead Design: Report
Memphis' Shelby County Sheriff's Office is searching for BlocBoy JB, and that search has started to affect those who've been inspired by his music or his famous "Shoot" dance.
According to a Promo Market Magazine report published Monday (Feb. 25), the Memphis Grizzlies have decided to postpone their giveaway of bobblehead figurines featuring star rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. doing the "Shoot" dance.
Last week, the Grizzlies planned to honor the first-year star with an exclusive bobblehead in which he poses like the dance popularized by BlocBoy's hit single "Shoot." However, since the former XXL Freshman is wanted for possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia, theft and being a felon in possession of a handgun, the Grizzlies are reportedly planning to remake the bobblehead and they'll scrap the original model in the process.
As of today, BlocBoy JB is still wanted by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. Earlier this month (Feb. 16), SCSO sent out a tweet looking for BlocBoy, and the rapper has yet to turn himself in.
