Petey Pablo Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge

Petey Pablo may be heading back to jail.

According to the Associated Press, the North Carolina rapper pleaded guilty on Wednesday (March 16), to possession of a stolen firearm.

Pablo was arrested on September 11, 2010 at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport when security discovered a concealed weapon in his carry-on luggage.

In November, the “Raise Up” rapper’s reps told TMZ that their client was unaware that he was carrying the gun in his luggage, and that it was not even his. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm and attempting to take the gun onto an airplane.

The AP is reporting that Petey Pablo is facing up to 10 years behind bars and will be sentenced in June. He previously spent six years locked up for armed robbery in the 1990s. —Adam Fleischer

    How in the hell do you not know there’s a gun in your luggage. Especially when you can’t afford any slip ups.

    Normally I don’t ride with any of these dummies….. But I’m leaning towards believing Petey Pablo on this one. Why?

    It’s waaay too easy for one of your boys (or some jealous hood rats) to put some heat in your baggage.


    Petey Pablo was on top for like two minutes. But what if in that brief time on top he fucked over some cats. Better yet, what if some cats who he used to look out for are mad as shit cause he ain’t gettin’ no work (ie… their not eating). I’ve seen dudes killed for that type of stuff. So it’s not very far off from reality.

    But Petey could have been your typical dumb assed dude. I won’t put that one past him either (What up DMX).
