Houston rapper Lil Flip, whose career seems to have stalled, was caught speeding on Interstate 49 in DeSoto Parish and a search of the vehicle has yielded the police drugs and firearms. Consequently, the rapper is now in gaol. I mean, if you were to get caught with marijuana and a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, you’d be inside too.
The artist, who was at one time, known as the “King of Freestyle” last scored a hit with his album “Ahead of my Time”. Wesley Eric Weston, that’s his real name, was traveling with Olanza Sanders, of Shreveport and both are now cooling their heels in the slammer. Lil Flip has attracted three charges of third-offense possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance and speeding while the other guy it turns out is a convicted felon. He was duly booked for possession of an illegal firearm by a convicted felon.
