    Updated:

    ATLANTA - Atlanta rapper Lil’ Scrappy said Wednesday he is headed to rehab.

    The musician, whose real name is Darryl Richardson, has had several court appearances in recent months. A few weeks ago, he failed a court-ordered drug test.

    "It is my hope that my time away from my family and especially my little girl, my daughter, will make me a better man," Richardson said.

    He said it's time for him to get help for marijuana addiction.

    A judge has granted Richardson a continuance in his probation battle, giving him time to attend rehab.
