Lil Wayne just pleaded guilty in federal court for unlawful possession of a loaded gun while traveling in Miami by private jet.
Authorities said an anonymous tip led them to Wayne’s PJ at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport on December 23, 2019, and when they boarded to speak to passengers… Wayne told them that ‘he had a gun in his bag.
Police say they found a gold-plated Remington 1911 .45 caliber handgun loaded with 6 rounds. They also claim to have found a bag containing personal amounts of cocaine, ecstasy and oxycodone.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to the guns charge Friday in Miami, and his sentencing is slated for next month. Weezy, who was convicted of a firearms charge in New York in 2009, now faces up to 10 years in prison.
However, he will probably be forgiving. Our sources say Wayne accepted the guilty plea and in return the government agreed to recommend a lighter sentence because it takes responsibility for it. Ultimately his sentence will go to a judge, but that’s a good sign for Tunechi.
