Lil Wayne is probably wishing that he'd left that hot revolver at home right about now.

The Associated Press reports that the "Prom Queen" rapper—born Dwayne Carter—is expected to receive a one-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to attempted weapon possession on Thursday.

In a New York court, Carter acknowledged carrying a loaded .40 caliber semi-automatic on his tour bus when police, smelling marijuana smoke emanating from the bus, pulled the vehicle over in New York's Columbus Circle on July 22, 2007.

According to police, Carter threw away a Louis Vuitton bag carrying the gun as an officer approached the vehicle. Carter's defense attorney, Stacey Richman, initially maintained that the gun was not Carter's, but the prosecution countered that small amounts of DNA were found on the weapon that tied it to Carter.

The rapper's trial had been scheduled to begin on January 20. Carter will remain free on bail until his February sentencing.

In the meantime, he also faces  trial in Arizona on felony drug and weapons charges, stemming from a January 2008 arrest at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

    My father, a Vietnam vterean saw me off to war as a Marine going to Desert Storm, and now as a Desert Storm Veteren, I have wached my son leave for Iraq to serve with the 1st Cavalry division. Three generations of war vtereans. You should be on your knees every day thanking God that my Family has fought for America for over forty years to secure the freedoms and liberties that you now have today. So Caleb, you can take your anti American sentiments and shove them up your arse. Until you have walked one week in the shoes of my son you have no busines even involving yourself in these types of discussions. You do not even rate to be in the same room as my father, myself, and especially my 19 year old son. And on behalf of all my family members who have sacrificed their blood, sweat, and tears serving these great United States of America .you are welcome!!!!
