Rapper Master P and his brother were charged Monday with carrying unregistered loaded guns after police stopped their car near the University of California, Los Angeles.
The 37-year-old rapper, whose real name is Percy Robert Miller, was arrested Jan. 27, along with his brother, after campus police stopped them because their car did not have license plates.
According to police, an officer spotted a gun near the driver’s seat, and another was found under the front passenger seat, where Miller was sitting.
The car was being driven by Miller’s brother, Vyshonn King Miller, a 29-year-old singer who uses the name “Silkk the Shocker,” authorities said.
Both men were free on $35,000 bail each. They were scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on one felony count each.
A third brother, Corey Miller, a rapper who used the name C-Murder, is awaiting sentencing for murder. He was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003 for shooting a 16-year-old youth to death at a nightclub near New Orleans.
