Rapper Lil’ Flip was due in court today for a hearing pertaining to his gun and drug possession charges from an arrest in December, Christmas night to be exact. That in and of itself seems like one heck of a problem for the young rapper, but not showing up to court today makes all of that a little bit worse.
The judge was apparently none too happy, with Flip and held him in contempt of court thereby issuing a warrant for his arrest.
TMZ is reporting that a source close to Flip said,
“He was unaware he had a hearing today and he told TMZ his lawyer is working to clear this silly little thing up.”
If you recall, Flip was caught with weed and an AR-15 rifle in the car. He told TMZ he has a license for the gun, and insisted that the blunts were just a “special kind of tobacco”.
