Lil Wayne

Rap star Lil Wayne and 11 other people in his crew were detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas today after marijuana was found on not only one … but TWO of his tour buses! The weed was found after a random search of the vehicles, but no drugs were found on Wayne’s person. No one else in the entourage had weed on them either. Officials tell TMZ a drug-sniffing K-9 unit picked up the scent outside the bus. After agents walked the dogs onto the bus, that’s when they located the weed. So far, no arrests have been made but Wayne and his crew are being detained at an internal B.P. checkpoint in southern Texas.

The marijuana on the buses was detected by drug dogs, said Agent Joe Trevino. The rapper, whose real name is DeWayne Michael Carter, Jr., was among a dozen being detained from his group. Trevino said the buses were en route to Laredo, Texas, from a concert stop in Hidalgo state. Calls to Carter’s representatives were not immediately returned Friday.

The Louisiana native was the 2008 best-selling artist, with 2.8 million records sold, and is signed to Cash Money Records. The rapper is scheduled to begin a prison sentence in February stemming from gun charges in New York.


When will these drug loving rappers learn? Don’t be surprised if Weezy F Baby is locked up sooner than Feb if things don’t work out with this weed on the tour bus issue…

Oh and that concert that was supposed to go on tonight has been postponed.
