Hip-hop artist Petey Pablo has pleaded guilty to possession of a stolen firearm.  The rapper, whose real name is Moses Barrett III, appeared in federal court Wednesday to enter his guilty plea. Federal prosecutors agreed to drop two other charges in a plea agreement.

Petey Pablo was arrested last year while attempting to clear security at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Authorities found a loaded gun in a bag that had passed through an X-ray machine.

Petey Pablo faces up to 10 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced in June. Looks like Petey maybe “raising it up” , but this time in prison. I just had to throw that in there, becaue I love that song “North Carolina RAISE UP”
