First, the hard news: Rapper Trick Daddy has been arrested for alleged possession of cocaine and an illegal firearm — so, not great. But before we get into all that, can we please talk about that mug shot (at left)? Speechless…
OK, back to business. TMZ reports that the “Take It to Da House” rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young, was stopped by law officials outside of his Florida home on Thursday evening. According to documents from the arrest, cops arrived with a search warrant for Trick Daddy’s house in tow.
During their search, officers found a gram of cocaine in the hip hop star’s nightstand, as well as a 9 millimeter handgun — a weapon he was not entitled to possess as a convicted felon (which he became many years ago).
Following the discovery, Maurice was taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, and driving with a suspended license. He has since bonded out, and will await further legal proceedings.
While drugs and guns are no joke, we at least have the comedic relief of whatever is happening on top of Trick Daddy’s head there. Bad hair days are never not funny.
