Rapper 40 Glocc has been arrested in San Bernardino, California, on weapons violation charges.
The G-Unit Records rap star, real name Lawrence White, was caught by police in possession of a nine-millimetre semiautomatic handgun on Sunday.
White was identified by police as a member of the Colton City Crips gang.
He was arrested close to an area he and other gang members are banned from congregating near under a 2008 court injunction.
Other gang members were with him.
White was arrested and booked on suspicion of various weapons violations. He previously denied being a member of the gang.
