Lil Wayne is facing federal weapons charges that could result into some serious time.
The Miami Herald reports the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida has charged the rapper with one count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. If convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison.
The charge stems from Wayne’s trip to Miami on Dec. 23, 2019 when federal agents recovered a gold-plated pistol during a search of his private plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.
Lil Wayne is set to appear back in court December 11.
