    Rapper Petey Pablo has been sentenced to serve 35 months in prison following a firearms possession conviction in North Carolina.

    Pablo, born Moses Barrett III, was arrested after security officers at Raleigh-Durham International Airport found a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage in Sept. 2010. That's what they call a "no no." If I am not mistaken, this took place on Sept. 11, 2010, making it even more of a "no no."

    The rapper, 38, agreed to plead guilty to possession of a stolen firearm if prosecutors dropped charges of possession of a firearm by a felon and a charge of attempting to take the gun onto an airplane. So he made a deal and took the lesser charge and got a lighter sentence.
