In late August, SpotemGottem was wanted for questioning by Dallas police in connection to the murder of Reginald Agnew Jr. which allegedly took place on September 30, 2020.
Police believed he may have hinted at being involved in the death of Agnew Jr. with lyrics from his song “Again,” but his attorney claims he is no longer a person of interest in the case.
