2 rappers arrested in after NYC concert
Top-selling rappers Ja Rule and Lil Wayne were arraigned on felony gun charges Monday following their separate arrests after a hip-hop concert at which both had performed, relates Reuters.
A judge set high bails and bonds for the rappers and two other men, but the defendants were expected to be freed immediately, their bonds secured by Ja Rule's $3.5 million house in New Jersey, bail bondsman Ira Judelson said.
Ja Rule, of Saddle Brook, N.J., and two men with him were stopped for speeding around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, and a police computer check of their 2004 Maybach luxury car revealed it had no insurance and a suspended registration, prosecutors said, in a statement to AP.
Lil Wayne's albums include "Tha Block Is Hot," "Lights Out," "Tha Carter" and "Tha Carter II."
