Petey Pablo Explains 9/11 Airport Gun Possession Arrest

After getting arrested for attempting to board an airplane with a pistol on 9/11, the "Raise Up" hit-maker lets fans know what really happened.

After his arrest for gun possession on Saturday in North Carolina's Raleigh Durham Airport, rapper Petey Pablo spoke to local K97.F FM's "Hip Hop NC" show about the arrest. Initially asked if the act was a publicity stunt, the convicted felon who attempted to bring a pistol onto an airplane via a carry-on bag revealed that he simply forgot about the weapon. "[It] looks terrible," admitted the former Jive Records artist who now heads up CMG - Carolina Music Group. "A lot of people were disappointed. Understand, the situation...anybody that knows me knows that I ain't gonna do nothin' stupid," continued Petey. Speaking about his culture, the "Raise Up" hit-maker asserted, "We don't do stupid things."

Claiming that he believed the bag was weighted down with the two Apple laptops he frequently travels with, Petey Pablo acknowledged his mistake. "At the same time, I apologize to anybody that I may have let down. Understand, I did something that I thought was right at the time."

Asked about new music, Pablo, who was rumored to be a Death Row Records artist just several years ago said, "It's sad too, 'cause I do got some new stuff comin' up."

      The only thing dumber than Petey claiming it was a mix up is you posting racist shit under "Anonymous". Fuck him for thinking less of us & fuck you for being less than us.

    This dude hasn't had a hit in years, so it doesn't surprise me he'd try and smuggle a gun onto a plane. It's for publicity. Only problem is nobody remembers him, so he'll probably end up in prison. Congrats moron.

  • assasin9

    Artists be thinkin fans are stupid... a pistol and two apple computers weigh the same ?

    Speaking about his culture, the "Raise Up" hit-maker asserted, "We don't do stupid things." _________________________________________________________________ I'm pretty sure bringing a pistol to an airport on September 11th is a stupid thing you dumb fuck
