Coolio may have deemed this whole thing a "misunderstanding," but the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office disagrees.

After getting busted trying to sneak a loaded gun through airport security at LAX last month, Coolio was officially charged with a felony during his arraignment on Thursday.

According to a statement from the El Lay DA's office, the 53-year-old is facing one count of possession of a firearm by a felon with two priors.

As for those two priors, the rapper was convicted for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle in 2001, and possessing cocaine in 2009.

The songsmith did not attend his hearing at the Los Angeles County Superior Court's Airport Branch, but his manager, Jarel Posey told People his absence was approved, saying:

"Everyone knows he has a concert in Green Bay Thursday night. We got the OK."

If the California native is convicted of this felony, the prosecutor's office says he could serve up to three years behind bars. The case is still under investigation by the LAPD.
