Sheck Wes was arrested on two felony charges after a traffic stop in New York City. Officers discovered a gun and drugs in the car, TMZ reports.
The “Mo Bamba” rapper was cruising through the city in a 2019 Lamborghini SUV with three friends when he was pulled over for excessive tint on his windows.
When he was pulled over, officers sensed a strong order of marijuana leading to the search. The officers found a 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol in a big in the passenger side of the car.
Now, the rapper and the passengers were each booked for criminal possession of a loaded firearm, criminal possession of a firearm, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Update: Sheck’s attorney, Scott Leemon, tells TMZ, “This morning, Judge Moyne, in the Manhattan Criminal Court released Sheck Wes on his own recognizance, with no bail. His case was adjourned to August. During that period, we will conduct our own investigation into the charges.”
