Lil’ Flip ain’t going down without a fight. The Houston rapper plead not guilty to charges that he was caught speeding in a car while in possession of weed and an illegally owned AR-15 assault rifle.
We broke the story … Flip was pulled over for speeding on Xmas in Louisiana … and was placed under arrest when police claim they found weed in his car … along with an AR-15 rifle.
Following his arrest, Flip was charged with possession of a firearm, possession of a schedule 1 narcotic (weed), and speeding. He pled not guilty yesterday to all three counts.
No surprise … Flip had previously told us he planned to fight the charges — insisting his rifle is 100% legal. He even showed us his concealed handgun license to prove it. As for the alleged blunts … Flip says they were Black & Mild cigars … NOT filled with weed.
A pre-trial date has been set for April.
As previously reported, on Dec. 26, Flip was allegedly caught going 86 mph in a 75 mph zone. The “Game Over” rapper was behind the wheel of a 2010 Dodge Challenger while his passenger was a man named Olanza Sanders, who was charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Lil’ Flip’s last album, Ahead Of My Time 1.5, was released about a year ago.
