GloRilla’s driver was reportedly arrested on gun possession charges while waiting outside her New York City concert on Wednesday night (February 22).
According to TMZ, a person identified as Cameron Blackmon set off a metal detector inside the Irving Plaza venue.
Police were suspicious and found Blackmon later sitting inside his suburban SUV while the show was going on and discovered a pair of semi-automatic pistols.
He was then arrested on criminal possession of a firearm, ammo and switchblade charges. NYPD officers added insult to injury when they gave Blackmon a ticket for illegally parking out in front of Irving Plaza.
Wednesday night’s show was epic as fans were treated to a special guest surprise when Cardi B joined Big Glo on stage to perform their “Tomorrow 2” smash hit together, which sent the crowd into an unbridled frenzy.

Lola Brooke also made an appearance on the show to perform her breakout hit “Don’t Play With It,” and backstage, stopped to chop it up with Cardi and GloRilla.
Cardi B and GloRilla have developed quite the friendship in the last year, and just after the release of “Tomorrow 2” in the fall, Big Glo surprised her new bestie with some new jewelry for her 30th birthday — including a Patek Phillipe watch.
“So I’m in the studio with GloRilla and she… I don’t even got no words to say,” Cardi said, appearing as if she were about to shed a tear. “She gave me some Van Cleef earrings … but she also gave me a fucking Patek, bro!”
“Tomorrow 2” is still holding strong at No. 45 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 and NBA superstar Damian Lillard recently dropped a freestyle over the Macaroni Toni-produced beat.
While GloRilla will need to find a new driver for the time being, she’s back on the road and wrapping up her Anyways, Life’s Great Tour this weekend with stops in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.
