Black was accused of concealing his criminal history on an application to purchase a firearm in January. The rapper committed a federal offense when he did not reveal his pending felony case on sexual assault charges in South Carolina when applying to purchase the weapon.

One of the guns purchased in January was reportedly found at the scene of an attempted shooting of a rival rapper, and another was discovered by authorities at the Canada-U.S. border when Black and his entourage were attempting to reenter the United States.
