Atlanta rapper Lil' Scrappy heads to rehab


Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy is most well-known from his song “Money in The Bank.” He's also featured on VH1's "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta."

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.
