50 Cent wasted no time in teasing Lil Wayne over his federal firearm cost. After studying that Weezy might be headed to jail, Fiddy recommended he name his buddy Donald Trump to bail him out.
Let or not it’s identified that 50 Cent is the toughest working rapper within the sport – on the subject of trolling. As quickly because the information broke that Lil Wayne was hit with a federal weapons cost, Fiddy, 45, hit up social media to seemingly mock Lil Wayne, 38, and his latest help for President Donald Trump. “[eyes emoji] Wait a minute. Trump still got 63 days left. Call him, Wayne. Get that fool on the phone. [facepalm emoji]. They gonna try to put you in jail for supporting trump.”
Now, Lil Wayne wasn’t charged for supporting the outgoing President of the United States. Instead, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida – a state that went for Trump, btw – charged Lil Wayne with one depend of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Wayne, based on the authorized paperwork obtained by , allegedly “knowingly possessed a firearm and ammunition in and affecting interstate and foreign commerce, knowing that he had previously been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year.”
The cost stemmed from a December 2019 incident when authorities searched Wayne’s aircraft on the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, per the Tampa Bay Times. The federal brokers found a gold-plated .45 caliber handgun in his Coach bag. Lil Wanye (Dwyane Carter Jr.) was convicted of a felony gun cost in 2009, and he faces as much as 10 years in jail if convicted of this newest gun cost.
Lil Wayne “is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane,” says Howard Srebnick, Wayne’s lawyer, in an announcement to . “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.”
Considering the listing of individuals Donald Trump has pardoned – former sheriff Joe Arpaio, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Dinesh D’Souza, Conrad Black – and the way he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone after he was convicted of witness tampering and making false statements to Congress, it’s not past the realm of prospects that Trump would pardon Wayne if convicted. However, Wayne could not need any extra assist from the outgoing president.
After voicing help for Trump, Wayne and girlfriend Denise Bidot unfollowed one another on Instagram, main some to take a position him backing Trump resulted in a breakup. A day after the unfollowing, he posted a cryptic assertion on Twitter. “I live the way I love and love the way I live. I’m a lover not a lighter bekuz they burn out. I am an eternal fire and burning love, either leave with a tan, a 3rd degree burn, or stay and die in love. You’re sweating. Sincerely, the fireman.”
