The hitmaker behind Beyonce’s “Freedom” took to Twitter to inform his fans that he was broadcasting live “just in case.”

According to Blaze, the officer inquired if his Lamborghini was “legit” before asking to see his license and registration. Thankfully, the routine stop ended in the producer’s favor after the cop confirmed that he was good to go.

“Crisis avoided,” Just Blaze said before dishing out advice to viewers. “I didn’t have any issues. However, I do suggest anytime you get pulled over, keep your wallet right next to you. Don’t keep it in your pocket. Keep it next to you, and pray and stream.”
