Benson said he doesn't "believe in checks."
"My dream I always dreamed about was going to the bank, getting a half a million...and putting the half-million on the dish, like 'Give me that Ghost right there,'" Benson said.
Benson said he was also considering spending some of the money he withdrew at an adult entertainment club after the incident.
Benson is from Memphis, and has been associated from fellow Tennessee rapper Yo Gotti. He is known for his song "Heavy," according to AllMusic.com!!!
Police told 11Alive that they responded to the bank at the request of the bank manager.
"Officers found that no crime had been committed," said Atlanta Police Sgt. Warren Pickard.
A later press release from the Atlanta Police Department stated that reports of an attempt to cash a fraudulent check at the location and a "limited and conflicting" description led to a case of mistaken identity.
"The Rapper, who identified himself as 'Blac Youngsta', by coincidence happened to be at the bank at the same time," APD Sgt. Warren Pickard said in a written statement. "Upon police officers arriving on scene, they made a brief detention of him until positive identification by the caller was made."
The actual suspect in the attempt to cash a $24,000 check, 39-year-old Charles Darnell Edward, was soon arrested - but not before police briefly detained Benson.
Edward was charged with forgery in the first degree - a felony.
"This incident did not directly involve Blac Youngsta, nor was he accused of committing a crime," Sgt. Pickard said.
A spokesperson for Wells Fargo responded Saturday and said that the bank is looking into this matter and will thoroughly investigate the situation.
"As part of our Vision and Values, we are dedicated to ensuring that our customers have a positive experience in every interaction with us," the spokesperson said.
