I can only imagine....maybe drugs just like the last time. I bet he thinks he is above the law because he's a "rapstar" and contributes a massive amount of use to society.

I thought he was already in prison or jail or something. Or was he charged but still out on the streets and he tried to run?

OK, here's the deal ... Lil Wayne was set to be sentenced on gun charges in Feb 2010 "after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon", after which he'd spend at least 9 months in prison.

This is near my hometown of McAllen, Tx where he was performing last night. Story here is there was half a pound of Marijuana on his bus. I guess these people didn't know there was a check point going NORTH (NOT SOUTH TOWARDS MEXICO), and I guess they also didn't know they were going the wrong way for their concert in Laredo tonight. HA. Only in the Valley!!

Of course, he'll blame it on the caucasian aspect of American society. For those of us who are just getting our young adults through college, there's little respect left for this portion of black society who are thugs, rappers, drug pushers, sex exploiters while spreading their sperm among a number of women to create out-of-wedlock kids with no paternal guidance in their lives, and abusing of women in other ways. This aspect of society created a negative effect on the generation from 1980 thru today of caucasians, Asians, et al. With Oprah's power in society, there was no logical reason for her not calling all the rappers on the carpet long before Obama was running for office. So disgusted and sick of the entire tribe as compassion can only go so far!
