Last summer, an 18-year-old male from Texarkana, Arkansas was accused of trying to steal a plane to go to Chicago to see Windy City rapper Famous Dex perform. 

This morning, Famous Dex spoke to TMZ, and shared his plans to treat the Arkansas teen, who attempted to steal a plane to come to one of his shows to a good time.

“I’m flying him out,” Dex said. “I’m going to put him in the nicest hotel in L.A. I’ma get him tickets to the show. He gonna stand right next to my DJ.”

Famous Dex says the fan who tried stealing a 44-seat airplane to fly himself to see the rapper in concert attempted, hands down, the craziest thing ANYONE has ever done to see him live ... so, he's hooking him up.

Dex also says that he’s going to take Scott on a shopping spree in Los Angeles, and that he wants to assist with Scott’s fines.

Zamarcus Devon Scott attempted to abduct a 44-seat American Eagle twin-engine commercial jet at Texarkana Regional Airport before Texarkana police got into the aircraft and arrested the Famous Dex super fan, who thought that there wasn’t much to flying an airplane besides pushing buttons and levers.

Apparently, Scott took Famous Dex’s lyrics, “Hopped on a plane/ now I’m on a cloud/Flyin’ in style” too seriously. The lyrics derive from the midwest rapper’s 2016 album Dexter’s Laboratory.

The Arkansas teen pleaded guilty to attempted theft of property and commercial burglary and was fined $1,000.
