Wait, There’s More
Earlier in 2020, he was booked by police on weapons charges. The legal drama happened in early January 2020 in Florida.
According to a Miami-Dade County arrest record obtained by XXL on Monday (Jan. 6), the “Az-Za” rapper, born Jacquavius Smith, was arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed firearm in Miami last Friday (Jan. 3). Under Florida law, a person found guilty of illegally carrying a concealed firearm faces a maximum of five years in prison or five years in probation and a $5,000 fine. While the arrest record doesn’t specify whether 9lokk had a license to carry a concealed firearm, a person in Florida have to be 21 years of age to obtain one. Since 9lokk is 19, it wouldn’t be legally possible for him to have such a certification. (XXL)
