The Snowman is still behind bars with bail set at $1 million, after pleading not guilty to possession of an illegal, military-style AK-47 assault rifle discovered on his tour bus.

Jeezy's vehicle was searched following a fatal shooting Friday (Aug. 23), backstage at an Under the Influence of Music show that he co-headlined with Wiz Khalifa at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif.

Multiple guns were found onboard. No one admitted to ownership of the war-grade weapon.

Jeezy was slapped with a felony charge, and he and five members of his entourage were arrested Sunday just before his concert at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Irvine, Calif. Authorities insist none of the six are suspects in the shooting.

A spokesperson for the Orange County district attorney told the Associated Press that the "Seen It All" rapper entered his plea Tuesday. He's expected back in court Sept. 5.
