Rapper Rich the Kid was arrested while trying to go through security at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday.
Law enforcement officials said that the 28-year-old performer was taken into custody for possession of a concealed weapon. Authorities said the firearm that was discovered in his carry-on luggage was loaded.
A video circulating on social media shows Rich the Kid in handcuffs as he is being led by law enforcement out of the terminal towards a police car.
The rapper dealt with a multitude of legal issues in 2020, including being sued by a jewelry store and a management company.
In 2019, Rich was the target of a shooting at a West Hollywood studio, and in 2018 the rapper had to be hospitalized after a reported home invasion robbery.
