Two top-selling rappers were released without bail on Tuesday following their arrest on felony gun possession charges after a concert in Manhattan.
Lloyd Banks, whose real name is Chris Lloyde, and Young Buck, whose real name is David Brown, were riding in a van with 10 other men that allegedly ran a red light at about 11:30 p.m. Monday near the corner of West 41st Street and Eighth Avenue, authorities said.
Police said one of the 12 men was carrying a loaded handgun and another weapon was found on the floor of the van. All of the occupants were charged with gun possession.
Lloyde, 23, and Brown, 24, both are members of 50 Cent's G-Unit and had just performed at nearby Madison Square Garden on the "Anger Management 3" tour. Their lawyer, Scott Leemon, declined to comment.
