Wayne "Mac Wayne" Frisby, 28, had been on the run evading prosecution in a sketchy robbery in Marysville from February.
Last week, the blind rapper released a new single, taunting the cops to catch him.
They took him up on the challenge.
Frisby was apprehended about noon Thursday near Oakland, Calif., according to police.
He was picked up by the recently formed Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force, said Shari Ireton, a spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.
The task force pools resources from local police, the U.S. Marshals Service and the state Department of Corrections to make arrests on felony warrants.
Frisby was arrested for investigation of first-degree robbery. A 23-year-old woman who was with him also was arrested on a warrant.
Both were expected to be booked into jail in California and extradited back to Everett, Ireton said. Frisby became the focus of a $250,000 warrant while he was away.
Meanwhile, a shooting reported in Everett on Wednesday reportedly involved a dispute regarding Frisby's musical career. Police were skeptical about the story, however, after the shooting victim refused to cooperate with detectives.
Frisby's songs and music videos feature scenes from Snohomish County, including him panhandling, making child-support payments and stashing cash in a freezer. Parts of downtown Everett guest star in the video.
