Earlier this year, I found myself wondering where and what the hell happened to Lil Flip. Maybe experts on buddy knew more about him than I did, but it seemed as if dude had completely fell off the map following his beef with T.I. way back when. Still I figured, he’d make some sort of reemergence at some point because most rappers do. That may not be the case now as the Clover G’s leading man was arrested in Louisiana on gun and drug charges Wednesday morning.
Supposedly, Flip – real name Wesley Eric Weston – and a passenger, Olanza Sanders, were pulled over for doing 86 in a 75. The search of the vehicle found marijuana and a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle. According to The Shreveport Times, Flip was booked on charges of third-offense possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance and speeding. Sanders, additionally, was booked on the charge of illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Sanders is already free on $25,000 bond. Flip, on the other hand, is still sitting in the slammer awaiting to post bond of $35,000. Upon publishing time of this post, the “Lil Flip’s Career Is Game Over” angle has already been beaten into the ground. Thanks a lot, Internet.
