Hip-hop star Lil Wayne is hoping for leniency in his federal weapons case after pleading guilty to a possession charge.

Last month (November 2020), the A Milli rapper was slapped with a count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon – 11 years after Wayne served time for a felony gun charge in New York.

The weapon was found during a December 2019 search of his private plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport in Florida, where his aircraft had made a stop en route to California.

The case was heard by a Miami judge on Friday (December 11, 2020), when Wayne entered a guilty plea.

According to TMZ, he agreed to take responsibility for his actions in exchange for prosecutors recommending a shorter stint behind bars when the judge decides on sentencing next month (January 2021).

He faces up to 10 years in prison for the charge.
