Police obtained a warrant and searched his home in Miramar where the rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young, was detained getting out of his car, according to an arrest affidavit from the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Young, 40, was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, and driving with a suspended license. He told police that he is a convicted felon and has been arrested previously for trafficking narcotics, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and possession of cocaine, according to the affidavit.
