Mogul Master P and his brother, rapper Silkk the Shocker, were sentenced to community service, stemming from a 2005 incident in which police found loaded firearms in their rental car.
Percy “Master P” Miller pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of carrying an unloaded, unregistered weapon.
A plea of no contest means that Master P neither admits nor disputes the charges, that will still stand.
Vyshonne “Silkk the Shocker” Miller pleaded guilty to a felony charge of carrying an unregistered and loaded firearm.
Both men were ordered to perform 40 hours of community service and fined $700 apiece.
Silkk was also sentenced to three years supervised probation.
Master P and Silk were arrested in February of 2005 after officers on the campus of UCLA noticed the guns in the rapper’s Chrysler 300M.
“Black man with gun, white cop panic. I’m a businessman. If the cops stopped panicking for one minute, they would’ve realized that the guns were registered, and that is legal in America,” Master P told AllHipHop.com shortly after his arrest. “It’s a different way of life for a person of color with money than it is for others with money.”
