SpotemGottem’s Criminal History
In June 2021, SpotemGottem allegedly pointed a gun at a parking garage attendant over an $80 parking fee. The victim spoke about the incident and said that Harden sat in the back seat of a white Dodge Charger. SpotemGottem then leaned forward and pointed a gun with a laser sight at the victim. He told the victim, “you know what it is,” before the car drove off.
The incident led to Harden’s arrest on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Real name Nehemiah Harden, the U.S. Marshals later found him in a hotel room with an AK-47 pistol lying next to him the following month.
Later that year, he was in a drive-by shooting incident, where he faced five gunshots. He made a full recovery but was in critical condition at the time.
SpotemGottem is best known for his chart-topping song “Beat Box,” which charted at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. He currently has three mixtapes, his most recent being “Back From The Dead,” which was released in December 2021.
