Lil Flip, Gun Charge Arrest: Rapper Says He’s Innocent


After Lil Flip was arrested on Dec. 26 on gun and drug charges, the rapper is ready to fight back, insisting he’s innocent.

When police pulled him over in Shreveport, La. for speeding and allegedly found marijuana and a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in his car, he was arrested for speeding, possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance.

But in a interview with TMZ, he says he was not carrying drugs during the incident and he has a license for his gun — even sharing his license with the site. He alleges he only had wine-flavored cigars and clove cigarettes on him.

“[I’m] not one of those rappers who would carry drugs on me,” he told TMZ. “I know better … I know they don’t mess around in Louisiana and I wouldn’t do anything to make me go to the big house. Especially on Christmas night.”

He plans on pleading not guilty.
