Rapper Petey Pablo Pleads Guilty To Weapons Charge Now Faces 10 Years In Prison

N.C. – Hip-hop artist Petey Pablo has pleaded guilty to possession of a stolen firearm.

The rapper, whose real name is Moses Barrett III, appeared in federal court Wednesday to enter his guilty plea. Federal prosecutors agreed to drop two other charges in a plea agreement.

Petey Pablo was arrested last year while attempting to clear security at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Authorities found a loaded gun in a bag that had passed through an X-ray machine.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in June. His attorney did not return a call seeking comment Wednesday.

The rapper is best known for the songs “Raise Up” and “Freek-a-Leek.”
