Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Having A Gun On His Private Jet

Lil Wayne is free to celebrate Christmas in Miami after federal agents searched his private jet, but the rapper still faces potential charges after agents found at least one handgun and drugs, according to law enforcement sources.

The gun also qualified as bling — a gold-plated .45 caliber handgun with a pearl grip, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the plane search. The weapon, they said, was found in the musician’s Coach bag along with drugs, after the jet landed at Miami-Opa-locka Executive Airport following a flight from California.

Investigators also found MDMA in pill and crystal form as well as weed, cocaine and heroin in the bag, but the quantity of each drug was not immediately known, the sources said. In addition, Lil Wayne’s chef, who was traveling with the rapper, had about $20,000 in cash on him, sources said.

During his first virtual appearance, Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to possessing a gold-plated .45 on his private jet, when he landed at the Miami Opa-Locka Executive Airport on December 23rd, 2019.

The rap star stood in front of U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams and took responsibility for bringing the gun with him when he left Los Angeles for his residence in Miami.
