Blac Youngsta hit with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge.
Blac Youngsta is facing illegal weapons charges ––again.
According to reporting by TMZ, the rapper was caught after the car he was in made an illegal turn. Police said they saw a handgun in between his legs and made the arrest around 2:40 AM early last Sunday. Youngsta was booked with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge, and taken to a Dallas jail where he posted bail for $5,000.
Blac Youngsta seems to love guns, and definitely owns more than a pistol. Last week he posted a video to Instagram driving around with an AK-47. “Good fucking morning America,” he says. “Make sure you brush your teeth, wash your face, and load your K. Okay?”
Youngsta was in Dallas for a live performance on Saturday, before the arrest. The new charges come only a few weeks after the release of a new album, Code Red, made with CMG labelmate Moneybagg Yo. The album features Yo Gotti, 42 Dugg, Yo’s girlfriend, Ari, and more.
Not his first arrest for guns either.
This is not the first time Blac Youngsta has faced gun charges. In 2019 he was arrested in Houston for felony possession of a prohibited weapon — specifically, armor-piercing ammunition. Police pulled over the car he was riding in for running a red light.
The police report claimed that two semi-automatic pistols were found inside a Louis Vuitton bag owned by the rapper.
That time, one of his friends was also arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon.
