Blueface is gaining popularity among the hip-hop elite, but unfortunately he’s also gaining popularity within the criminal justice system after finding himself balancing multiple legal cases for the alleged possession of firearms.
According to L.A. County D.A.’s office, the “Thotiana” rapper was just charged with possession of a fully-loaded, unregistered handgun from an arrest on February 1.
He was arrested after LAPD rolled up on a large group of people he was hanging out with, causing everyone to scatter. Multiple people tried ditching their guns, but Blueface and two other men, were arrested.
The charge is a felony and carries a maximum sentence of 3-years in prison. It also comes on the heels of another charge the rapper was given for a different possession of a firearm.
Back in November, Blueface was busted in Santa Clarita, CA for his alleged involvement in a robbery and vehicle-to-vehicle gunfight. He was in a car that crashed into the center divider on the freeway, and he was arrested on a $50,000 bond for assault with a deadly weapon.
The incident got downgraded, and he was eventually charged with possession of a registered handgun, which is only a misdemeanor. The hip-hop star pled not guilty to the charge in December, and faces up to a year in county jail. He’s due back in court for that case later this week.
Blueface’s “Thotiana” remix feat. Cardi B has gained over 11 million views since its February 16 release. Hopefully he’s able to enjoy the success, and stay out of trouble.
