Police arrested a rapper as he walked out of a bank in Georgia with almost $200 grand of his own cash.

Rapper Blac Youngsta, whose real name is Sam Benson and his entourage went to a Wells Fargo bank in Georgia during a tour stop on Friday.

Benson said he was a millionaire and saved enough cash to withdraw the money for a new luxury Mercedes-Maybach S600, which has a sticker price of $189,000.

However, his purchase of the expensive car abruptly ended after police confronted him with their guns drawn after being notified by the bank.

According to the Daily News, bank employees reportedly mistook the 25-year-old rapper for a man wanted for cashing phoney checks.

“Wells Fargo came out like everything was cool, but (the employee) called the police on me,” he told the Daily News.

Despite the fact that police confiscated half of Blac Youngsta’s hard earned cash for a short time, the rapper says he has no problem with the Police.

As for the employees from the bank, that’s a different story.

“They targeted me just because I was young and black … I had too much money,” the rapper told the Daily News.

A photo was taken by his manager as police uncuffed the Memphis, Tennessee native after cops had realized they had the wrong man.

Blac Youngsta’s biggest complaint about the incident was the cold weather, made worse after police stripped him of his jacket.

“I had a muscle shirt on, and it was dead cold out there,” he added.

Police arrested the real fraudster, Charles D. Edward at the bank a short time later after he cashed a fraudulent $24,000 check.

“This incident did not directly involve Blac Youngsta, nor was he accused of committing a crime,” police officials later said.
