Yesterday morning, Trick Daddy (government name Maurice Young) was stopped by members of the Broward County Drug Task Force while leaving his home in Miramar.
According to the arrest report, the 39-year-old lupus-afflicted rapper was behind the wheel without proper certification. So police requested a search warrant, eventually finding a weapon stashed in the bedroom and narcotics on the nightstand.
The charges: Possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of ammunition by a felon, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license.

Over the years, Trick Daddy's had lots of trouble with the law
From 1991 until '94, the rapper served two-and-a-half years in state prison after being convicted on cocaine, gun, and probation violation charges.
A decade later in 2003, he got into a scuffle during a pickup basketball game, pulled a gun on 27-year-old Pernell Paige, and threatened to kill him. The rapper was charged for aggravated assault with a firearm, use of firearm in commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Just months after that incident, he and a friend were drinking and acting up while watching a high-school football game. The cops stopped and searched them, finding coke and weed.
In 2006, he was busted for shouting down and throwing punches at a man while hanging around the Lincoln Road Mall on Miami Beach.
