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.
