Jadakiss Pleads Not Guilty, Released on Bail
Yonkers rapper Jadakiss appeared in court on Tuesday (October 10) and plead not guilty to charges of weapons possession and possession of stolen property. According to MTV News, the rapper called into the Angie Martinez show on New York radio station Hot 97 to profess his innocence and relate his side of the story. “I should have been home sleeping, getting ready to do the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors with Styles P. Instead, I was in the ‘hood, being a knucklehead.” Police arrested him and three associates after discovering a stolen gun hidden in their vehicle. Initial reports on the incident claimed that Yonkers Police pulled the car over and arrested the four passengers when the gun was discovered. According to Jadakiss, he was not even sitting in the car, and the vehicle was locked when the police approached. The rapper was released after posting a $5000 bail and is due back in court on October 20.
