Lil Reese added another arrest to his growing record last night (July 28). The 21-year-old rapper was busted in Chicago on felony gun possession charges, XXL reports.

Reese, whose birth name is Tavares Taylor, is being held on $50,000 bail at the Cook County jail. 

His latest arrest could trigger even more legal trouble for Reese, according to the site. While sleeping in a car last April, he was arrested on criminal trespassing, battery and mob action charges, for attacking a woman on video a year earlier. Two months later, in June of 2013, he was busted for theft after he allegedly used "false documentation" to get a BMW. Those charges were later dropped.

In July of last year, Reese was arrested once more, this time for marijuana possession. He was busted with $24 worth of weed, which he confessed to purchasing, telling cops,  "It's mine, I got a little weed. So what? ... There's serious crime out there. This ain't a big deal. I'm gangster."

The Def Jam artist doesn't just get in trouble with the law either, fans have blasted him over the aforementioned attack video and most recently for posting a photo of a child holding a gun
