American rapper Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., 38, aka Lil Wayne, pleaded guilty to charges of illegal possession of weapons, according to The Hill.
“[Lil Wayne] is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane. There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person. The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm,” Wayne’s attorney, Howard Srebnick said.
Earlier, Lil Wayne was convicted of a felony, making it illegal for him to possess a firearm.
The rapper was detained in 2019 after a search at Miami airport, where he was flying by private jet. He was carrying a loaded handgun.
According to reports, the police learned that Carter had a firearm from an anonymous message.
