Rapper Lil Wayne, who recently voiced support for President Donald Trump’s plan for black Americans, has been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, an offense that carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison, according to multiple reports.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., allegedly had a gun and ammunition during a private flight on December 23 of last year despite a previous felony that prohibits possession of firearms.
Authorities said the 38-year-old rapper acknowledged owning the gold-plated handgun after his luggage was searched upon arriving in Miami on a private plane, according to federal court documents obtained by the Associated Press.
