HOUSTON — Houston rapper Paul Wall and fellow rapper Baby Bash were arrested in a drug raid Friday.

According to Harris County District Clerk records, Paul Michael Slayton and Ronald Ray Bryant were both charged with manufacturing/ delivering a controlled substance.

A law enforcement official told TMZ.com that the two men, along with eight other people, were taken into custody when officers were executing a search warrant at a location.

This is not the first time they were arrested together.

A photo of Paul Wall and Baby Bash, both handcuffed in the back of a cop car, went viral in 2011 after the two were arrested for pot possession in El Paso.

Paul Wall was released from jail after posting a $20,000 bond.

His attorney, Jolanda Jones, released the following statement:

Mr. Paul Slayton, aka Paul Wall, is innocent until proven guilty. It is early in this case. We are confident that after a thorough investigation of these allegations Mr. Slayton will be proven not guilty. I will fight vigorously to defend my client.
