(AllHipHop News) A Louisiana judge has issued an arrest warrant for Houston rapper Lil Flip. The “Game Over” performer did not show up to a scheduled court hearing and was held in contempt of court according to a report by TMZ.
Flip was originally arrested in December of last year after police in Mansfield, Louisiana pulled him over for speeding. Authorities then found a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle and allegedly marijuana in his vehicle.
Shortly after being released from jail Flip took to Instagram to address the situation and denied that he had anything illegal in his possession when he was stopped by police that night.
“#FRESHOUT???? GOOGLE OFFICER#9845 DENNIS, BUCKINGHAM IN MANSFIELD ,LOUISIANA I HAVE A GUN LICENSE..????” said Flip. “AND BLACK N MILD GUTS AIN’T GANJA???? ME SAVAGE BEEN OUT SINCE YESTER DAY…IF MY GUN WAS A PROBLEM WHY IS IT STILL IN MY TRUNK.. IT’S ALL GOOD.”
Flip later sent TMZ a copy of his Texas concealed handgun license and claimed that it is valid in Louisiana and 21 other states.
He also told the website, “I know they don’t mess around in Louisiana, and I wouldn’t do anything to make me go to the big house.”
In February, Flip pled not guilty to the charges of possession of a firearm, possession of a schedule 1 narcotic, and speeding.
Apparently, Flip was unaware of the most recent court hearing and is working with his attorneys to settle the matter.
