Mobb Deep member Prodigy faces 15 years on gun charges after being pulled over for making a U-turn.
Last October, police found a .22-caliber handgun in the rapper’s bulletproof Chevy Suburban after they pulled him over for making a U-turn.
According to the New York Post, the two police officers testified yesterday that after stopping the vehicle, they saw Prodigy’s hand either on or near the open center console door.
Prosecutors said that alleged gesture and the SUV’s heavily reinforced doors and windows gave cops the right to search the vehicle. Prodigy claims he was unaware that the unlicensed, fully loaded gun was in the center console between himself and producer The Alchemist.
The rapper faces up to 15 years in prison for the charges because of his two prior gun possession convictions.
The defense case is set to begin on October 9.
