Lil Wayne Detained In Texas; Marijuana Found On Two Tour Buses

Lil Wayne: Busted again, and already headed to prison in February

​Rapper Lil Wayne was detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas today after drug dogs detected marijuana on two of his tour buses, reports Aspen Steib of CNN.

The famed rapper, whose real name is DeWayne Michael Carter, Jr., was among 12 people being detained from the Lil Wayne entourage, according to Agent Joe Trevino.
Trevino told CNN the tour buses were on their way to Laredo, Texas, after playing a gig in Hidalgo, Mexico.

Lil Wayne was the best-selling artist of 2008, with 2.8 million units sold.


​The Louisiana native is scheduled to begin a prison sentence in February, stemming from New York gun charges.
This isn’t Lil Wayne’s first close encounter with Border Patrol agents. He was arrested on Jan. 23, 2008 by the Border Patrol at a checkpoint in Yuma County, Ariz., after officers searched the 25 year-old rapper’s tour bus and alledgedly found marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy and handguns.
On Feb. 8, 2008, Carter pleaded not guilty to the charges of one count each of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Earlier this year, the rapper gave his endorsement to a new line of cigars made with smoking weed in mind. The makers of Bogey Blunts were allowed to use Lil Wayne’s image on the product packaging.
