The ex-boyfriend of dancehall artiste Jada Kingdom, American rapper Nas EBK has been arrested and charged with the murder of a 22-year-old man in Times Square last month.

The 19-year-old, whose given name is Nasir Valenzuela, was nabbed in New Jersey in connection with the murder of Idressa Siby.

Authorities said that, on February 9, Nas and Siby got into an argument at 44th street and 8th Avenue in Times Square. According to AMNY, the argument quickly escalated with Nas allegedly shooting Siby, striking him on the right side of his chest.

It is further reported that Siby attempted to run but only managed to make it just a block where he collapsed in front of a Chic-Fil-A. Police say that, after repeated attempts to revive Siby using CPR at the scene, he was taken to Mt Sinai West, where he succumbed to his injuries.

On Friday morning (March 10), the upcoming artiste was picked up by the New Jersey police department and later handed over to the NYPD in Midtown Manhattan, New York.

The rapper is no stranger to run-ins with the law, as he was recently charged on February 21, with assault and making terroristic threats after appearing in a YouTube prank video at ShopRite in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.

Last September, Nas EBK and his then Jamaican beau made headlines after he publicly presented her with a promise ring for her 24th birthday.
