He's Boring now    

He pled guilty as has this gone to trial and found guilty he would do an automatic 10 years for the automatic weapons and being a convicted felon. Smart move, this way he only does one year.

But bad move all the way around---to think such success, fame and fortune and he has to arm himself and make arrangements to get more weapons...he will pay dearly in the penitentary for protection and will be extorted, shamed and "protected" by those who will abuse him even when he does pay...but paying up will save his life. A very sad situation that was quite preventable.

Please dont come back to Society with the cess pool of knowledge and hate you will gain from this experience...leave us alone and stay away from weapons.

He has some great rap songs. Why did he need those guns in the first place?

So he will get to stay OUT of jail for at least 5 months with all of that community service. That is idiotic. He needs to sit in jail for the year he was sentenced to and THEN do his community service.

This whole stupid notion of having "street credibility" is BS ! Work hard at your music and be focused on that. The kids and teens who listen and admire him need to learn you don't have to be shot or shoot at someone to prove your a tough guy. If you want protection cause your a celeb, hire a body guard like everyone else.
My God I give awesome advise! I should charge!

Maybe, if we gave all the rappers and hip hop thugs guns................they would just kill each other. Then the taxpayers wouldn't have to pay to keep them fed in prison!

You dumb azzez! He did the perfect thing. He played the system like any of you dummies would've done. 1 year. That's nothing. His fan base will only be stronger when he gets out. And if I recall right our "fore fathers" gave us all the right to bear arms. With whatever and as many as we want. Don't get it twisted people. And call those "thug" rappers whatever you want. Just make sure you call them rich also.
