Lil Wayne to face 10 years in prison after being hit with a federal weapons charge

American lengendary rapper, Lil Wayne is facing up to 10 years in prison after being hit with federal weapons charge.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida has charged the rapper with 1 count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Weezy — who was convicted of a felony gun charge in NY back in 2009 — faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

The charge is for a December 2019 incident where federal agents searched Wayne’s plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. He was a passenger on that plane, which made a stop in Florida on its way to California.

At the time … Wayne’s attorney, Howard Srebnick, had said his client was “cleared” to leave even though guns and drugs were reportedly found on the plane. It appears now the feds believe Wayne was wrongfully in possession of a weapon and ammunition.

The lawyer stated “The charge is because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.”

Wayne’s scheduled to appear in court next month.
