Master P and Silkk the Shocker are out on bail after being arrested on felony gun charges Thursday in Los Angeles.
The rappers, who are brothers, were arrested after an officer from the University of California Police Department discovered two loaded guns in a leased Chrysler 300M they were driving at UCLA shortly before midnight. One weapon was near the driver’s seat where Shocker was sitting, and the other was underneath P in the passenger seat, according to the arrest report, posted on the Smoking Gun.
P and Silkk, whose real names are Percy Miller and Vyshonne Miller, respectively, were pulled over for failing to have a license plate. Two other men were in the back seat but were not arrested.
The 37-year-old P and 29-year-old Silkk were arrested for investigation of unlawfully carrying firearms and then transferred to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s station, where they were booked. The rappers spent three hours in custody before being released on bail.
The brothers will be arraigned March 30 at the Felony Arraignment Division in the Airport Courthouse of Los Angeles Superior Court.
Master P has been living in Los Angeles recently, producing a TV show starring his son, Lil’ Romeo, as well as directing movies for the two of them. “Uncle P” is due in the spring.
