It hasn’t been the easiest few days for rappers in airports.

Days ago, Bay Area legend Too Short ran into trouble when he tried to bring a loaded handgun through airport security and left the scene.

Now Waka Flocka Flame’s experienced a similar difficulty getting airborne. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the “Hard In The Paint” rapper was trying to get through airport security in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport when a security scan revealed that his bag contained a loaded handgun.

Flocka, however, had not procured a permit for the piece, so he was arrested for the crime of carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

Deputies took him to Clayton County Jail. No further information has come from either his camp or the police.
