Lil Flip's Christmas was ruined by an arrest in Louisiana for drug and gun possession, and now the rapper is fighting back.
Flip was pulled over and booked on the night of December 25 after cops found marijuana and an AR-15 rifle in his car. But the Houston rapper tells TMZ that he has a valid license to carry the weapon, and that the alleged weed found was really Black and Mild cigars and clove cigarettes.
"I know they don't mess around in Louisiana and I wouldn't do anything to make me go to the big house. Especially on Christmas night," he said in a statement.
Flip says he plans to plead not guilty and will fight the case in court.
