So sad that it's come to this.
Last September, rapper Petey Pablo was arrested at a North Carolina airport after he allegedly tried to sneak a gun in his carry-on luggage.
At the time, he was charged with being a felon with a gun and carrying a concealed, stolen weapon.

Been a while!
It's been three years since Nas released a solo album, but the rapper is back and it seems like he's more than ready to return to the studio:
"I can look back at my last record and I know that some songs didn't belong there. I really over thought it. There was a lot going on."
"I'm happy about music, it's pushing me back into the studio. I just love what's happening [in music]: I love Odd Future, Wayne, Drake, 'Ye [and] Rick Ross. It's something that threatens my position. Or it makes me question what I'm going to do next. What kind of impact do I want have now that I've been in the business this long. It's a challenge, it's scary even. But I'm very comfortable. I'm excited to see what comes out of me… I'm ready."
We're likin' the positive attitude, Nas! We'll be curious to see where you go with this new album.
Are U excited for a new Nas release?

Looks like it's finally happening!
After making all kinds of desperate attempts to get out of prison time, Wesley Snipes' efforts have failed and he's been ordered to surrender and begin his three year sentence.
On Friday, Snipes had his attorneys request a new trial, but U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges rejected the motion.
Snipes was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of "willful failure to file his income tax returns."
Guess we won't be seeing Wesley in Major League 4
or any other movies for a very long time.
Do U think Wesley deserves 3 years in prison for his crimes?

Lucky break, Lil' Wayne!
The rapper, who is already serving jail time in New York for possession of a weapon, will not have to go behind bars for a second round in the state of Arizona for his 2008 drug bust!
The judge must have taken pity on the douchebag in court today, and sentenced him with three years probation.
Hopefully now he'll keep his hands off of illegal weapons and substances!
