Sunday was a bad night for two hip hop stars in NYC, after Ja Rule and Lil Wayne were arrested in separate incidents, both for being in possession of illegal .40 caliber guns. Ja Rule was the first to get busted when he was pulled over in his Maybach (a car so expensive and luxurious that you’ve maybe never even heard of it) for speeding. A quick search of his vehicle turned up the pistol and he and his two companions were arrested.
Only an hour later and a few blocks away, Lil Wayne was arrested after cops spotted him and another man near his tour-bus getting their toke on with some weed. His gun was also discovered, and the two men were charged with possession of marijuana and a weapon. Lil Wayne had just performed earlier in the evening at the Beacon Theater.
The two rappers are both currently awaiting arraignment at the Criminal Court in NYC. Word is the fashion police may also be filing complaints against the rappers – tiny moustaches and tear drop tattoos are in clear violation of trendy Big Apple fashion codes. Both styles are soooo last year. [Newsday/TMZ. Images: Getty]
