Lil Wayne

Pleads Guilty

to Gun Charge

10/22/2009 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne has just pled guilty to attempted weapon possession in New York.

videos
Wayne was busted on July 22, 2007 in NYC after police pulled over his tour bus because they allegedly smelled pot.

Cops say when an officer approached the bus, Wayne tossed a Louis Vuitton bag with a gun inside.

New York is known for having extremely tough gun laws -- Wayne is expecting to get 1-year behind bars.

Wayne's troubles are far from over.

The rapper still faces felony drug possession and weapons charges in Arizona ... after cops found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy, various drug paraphernalia and a handgun on his tour bus during a traffic stop in Yuma County back in 2008.

Wayne pled not guilty to those charges -- his trial is set for March of 2010.

Wow...    

For all the "not my child and rap"....utilize Google, Yahoo, the Wall Street Journal or any other news source besides TMZ and you'll probably see that YES whites do buy more rap and hip hop than blacks. Even when the statistics are adjusted. But if you'd rather just be left alone to your racists rants....

As it turns out, Bakari isn't the only person interested in this statistic. Back in May, the Wall St. Journal published a very similar article that examines the same issue except, in the case of author Carl Bialik, he discovers that going by what data-measuring services are out there (namely Mediamark Research Inc., and not SoundScan, who doesn't track racial information, despite assumptions otherwise), as it turns out, the percentage of rap buyers in 1996, 1999 and 2001 were indeed, white. However, Bialik goes on to say that when MRI changed their data collecting methods - asking people to self-identify by race instead of having the collectors make that determination (what do they use? A color wheel? Genealogy charts?), the number of white consumers actually slipped to 60%. (What I'd like to know is where did that other 10-15% go? To African Americans? Latinos and Asians? Other?) (BTW, there's some follow-up questions in a later Journal column that pertains to this one.)

Wow...    

Ah...I'm sorry for not quoting my source but here's the link and these statistics were as of 2005. And they were culminated from Mediamark Research Inc.

If you want more recent statistics I encourage all the ranters about blacks to actually go do some research. It could possibly be a mind opening experience to read something and comment based on facts.

I'm out! Have a great night!!

Now that's a damn shame. I always thought he had a criminal look to him with all the facial tatoos and fake teeth. He always sounded like he was strung out on drugs too!

You are officially crowned King of the Idiots. NOW you can feel important. I left another comment for you but apparently it didn't make it to the thread. Anyways, I don't really have anymore time to waste on you. 1st you say the WSJ isn't a reliable source, then "anybody" can find anything like that on Google, then when you finally decide to browse through the article you tell me something I already put up genius. I already noted the dates. But you haven't noted to the contrary. That's the problem with ignorance. Its usually very shortsighted. Have fun talking to yourself darlin. Hopefully you'll use the time you would have otherwise spent talking about blacks to build a couple brain cells and do some reading. But don't work too hard. We don't want your little brain to explode.

Of all civilizations only the blacks in africa are the only ones that have not advanced. Blacks in africa are still killing each other and are still in poverity even though the white man has given them tools to better themselves. Blacks in America are lucky that they have the opportunity to benefit from the white culture and make music in English. You've never heard music done in the black lanuages becoming popular have you? But still blacks are not appreciative of what opportunities the white man has given them to live a better life. The are still thugsm, even with money.

You are so behind the times it's not funny. You mentioned Eminem when he is a hundred years ago as being popular with White kids. Then you pull a dated article. BTW, you take more exits than Barbara Streisand.
