Why, Of Course...


Rapper Birdman, real name Bryan "Baby" Williams, was among 16 people arrested in Kingsport, Tenn. early this evening and is facing drug and possible gun charges.

Williams, one of the founders of Cash Money Records, was in an RV that was spotted by a police corporal as it made an improper lane change and ran a tractor trailer off the road. When the corporal approached the RV, he said he could smell marijuana coming from inside, and found about a lb. of pot in a trashcan inside the RV. Whoops!

Birdman, his wife, brother and 13 others were each charged with possession of over 1/2 ounce of marijuana. According to the corporal that made the arrest, all 16 people are somehow employed with Cash Money Records.

Cops also found a 2-23 carbine assault rifle, a 9mm handgun and a magazine for .45-cal. handgun. As of now, no gun charges have been filed and the ATF is assisting in the investigation.

A rep for Cash Money Records could not be reached.

ATTN Rappers: this is getting really old.
