Juelz Santana is finally released from his prison bid due to a gun possession charge. This charge comes from the infamous incident in which Santana fled from an New Jersey airport. Now, the rapper has decided to sit down and explain what exactly happened to Fat Joe.
Santana stopped by Fat Joe’s Instagram Live show, with the explanation that he accidentally took the gun into the airport because it was in a bag that contained clothes he needed for an upcoming video shoot.
Santana via HotNewHipHop:
“I go to TSA and put my bag through security… In my mind, for everyone that’s listening, that’s not even on my mind. I go through security, it went through. The dude from Newark airport, he knows me. He about to check the bag. Someone called from the screening point where the screen is at and said, ‘Nah, we gotta run it through again.'”
According to Santana he was cool with checking the bag a second time around because he assumed that there wasn’t anything illegal in the bag. However, security found the small firearm and immediately notified the authorities. And because he had a traffic warrant in New Jersey, he went into street dash mode.
Santana tells Joe:
“The fact that they had the warrant and they said higher authorities are going to search your bag. So I’m like: ‘They gon’ lock me up for the weekend. I literally walked. Everybody saying, ‘He ran out the airport. He had one shoe on…’ I get in the cab. I hear, on Hot 97… So gettin’ close to my crib, [Hot 97] said, ‘Rapper Juelz Santana Flees Newark airport after firearm was retrieved from his bag.’ I’m like ‘What?! Ain’t no firearm retrieved from my bag.'”
Here’s where the explanation gets a lil sketchy….
Santana says things didn’t register to him until he was home that he’d accidentally put a firearm in his bag. He later turned himself in to the authorities and served prison time for the incident.
Did he forget to mention that he was probably high out his mind and went into paranoid/panic mode?! Just saying!
What’s your 2 cents?!
