Rico Richie -- whose song "Poppin" is blowing up -- got busted by cops who weren't even looking for him ... they were investigating Young Thug and the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the rapper got busted in Atlanta on Wednesday for selling weed, and possession of firearms. According to Richie's reps, the arrest went down in a recording studio ... which happens to be the same studio where Young Thug shot his "Halftime" music video.
Richie's peeps say the cops were investigating Thug, but instead found Richie with marijuana and 2 guns. Richie's camp claim the drugs and guns weren't his, but since he didn't want to snitch ... he "accepted responsibility."
Positive spin: Richie's an up and comer, and the Young Thug/Lil Wayne related arrest could give him street cred.
Reality: He has previous felonies, so he could be facing hard time in prison.
Funny case of wrong place, wrong time ... unless you're Richie.
"Trap Queen" rapper Fetty Wapand his boys jumped a store clerk and beat the hell out of him -- maybe, possibly ... according to the clerk who's got cops hot on Fetty's ass now.
Cops in Paramus, NJ tell us the 19-year-old Shop Rite clerk claims a female patron slapped him Friday night, and then her male friends jumped in and started whupping him in the middle of the store. TMZ obtained this video of the melee.
The clerk told cops he thought one of the male attackers was Fetty Wap, but admits he's not positive it was the rapper because of all the commotion. He only suffered minor injuries and doesn't want to press charges ... but if cops can ID Fetty as one of the suspects, he could still be arrested.
Fetty's reps have not returned our calls for comment.
Bobby Brown and his wife are either huge "Point Break" fans, or they're in touch with their inner Buddha -- because they've named their baby girl ... Bodhi.
TMZ obtained a copy of the birth certificate ... which lists her full name as ... Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown. The little girl was born last Thursday at Cedars-Sinai in Bev Hills.
We don't know for sure why Bobby and Alicia Etheredge picked the name Bodhi -- but in Buddhism the word refers to Buddha's enlightenment. More recently ... it was the name of Patrick Swayze's badass character.
Last year, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green also named their son Bodhi.
You can only fight the law for so long -- DMXgot thrown behind bars today, and if he's lucky ... he'll be out for the holidays.
The rapper was jailed in Buffalo, NY on Tuesday for failing to comply with a family court ruling. DMX has a history of issues with child support with one of his baby mamas who lives in the area, and it finally caught up with him.
He was slapped with a 6 month sentence, and immediately locked up in Erie County Holding Center.
NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak were thiiis close to reuniting on TV … but Bravo just scrapped their new show, "Road to Riches."
TMZ has learned NeNe and Kim’s road trip show -- think Oprah and Gayle with more arguing -- has been 86'd due to scheduling issues.
We’re told the 'Housewives' BFFs-turned-frenemies just couldn’t get on the same page. Kim is in the midst of shooting her show, "Don't Be Tardy" -- and NeNe is taping the ABC game show, "To Tell the Truth."
We're told there's the slimmest of chances it could be saved in the future, but for now it's ... bye Wig and Wig's friend.
Kylie Jenner’s cornrows started some racially-charged beef with Amandla Stenberg, who played Rue in "The Hunger Games."
Stenberg was offended by Kylie's pic showing off her new 'do -- saying, "When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter."
Translation: If you're going to pretend to be black, do better.
