Houston rapper Sosamann has been charged with human trafficking.

According to TMZ, the Taylor Gang affiliate was arrested this month following a prostitution sting in Los Angeles. Two women reportedly told authorities Sosamann and others had lured them to the West Coast with promises of the high life; but upon their arrival, they were forced into sell their bodies for sex and had no way to escape.

Sosamann—legal name Anthony Denson—was reportedly taken into custody and charged with a felony on May 11. He was released the following day on a $100,000 bond. According to the Los Angeles County inmate locator, the 29-year-old artist is schedule back in court June 6.

Sosamann has remained active on social media in recent weeks, but has yet to address the charges.

Authorities told TMZ the investigation is ongoing.

Since signing to Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang imprint in 2016, Sosamann has dropped a number of projects and teamed up with some of hip-hop's biggest stars. His collaborators include Playboy Carti ("In the Lobby"), YoungBoy Never Broke Again ("Hunger Games"), Shy Glizzy ("Cancel That Bitch"), and Lil Wayne ("What About Me").

His most recent album, Sauce Eskobar 2, dropped earlier this year.
