Rapper Lil Wayne faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal weapons charge.

The 38-year-old rapper appeared via a virtual court hearing in Miami on Friday (Dec. 11) where he pled guilty to illegally possessing a firearm as a formerly convicted felon. Federal agents discovered the .45-caliber handgun during a search of his private plane while traveling from Los Angeles to Miami on Dec. 23, 2019.

As a convicted felon from over a decade ago, Wayne wasn’t supposed to be in possession of a weapon. But he admitted to owning the gold-plated pistol, which was found in luggage along with bullets, suspected cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, cough syrup, and $25,938 in cash.

The crime carries a sentence of up to 10 years in federal prison, but Weezy may not serve much hard time. The government agreed to recommend a lighter sentence in exchange for the guilty plea, claims TMZ. Sentencing guidelines range from one year to two years with his acceptance of responsibility, according to the Miami Herald.
