FORT LAUDERDALE — Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested by Broward County Sheriff’s deputies yesterday and charged with a litany of felonies, including possession of a gun and cocaine.
The Miami rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young, is a convicted felon and can’t possess guns.
He was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of cocaine and driving with a suspended license.
He was released on $6,100-bond this morning, according to court records.
The records show Daddy, the singer of hit single I’m a Thug, was nabbed near his house in Miramar.
It’s the latest in a long series of drugs and guns problems in Florida for Trick Daddy.
In 2003, he faced assault charges in Miami after he allegedly brandished a gun and threatened to kill a man during a dispute following a street basketball game. He was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
He was convicted in 1991 on charges of cocaine possession, carrying a concealed firearm, and violating probation, also in Miami. He served two-and-a-half years in state prison.
