Young Money Rapper Cory Gunz Released From Jail After Posting Bail On Gun Charge

 

Cory Gunz is a free man this morning after his father, Peter Gunz, posted his $30,000 bail. The 24-year old posted several messages on Twitter once he was home and expressed remorse for his arrest on a gun charge.

 

 

"Lock My Body, Kan't Trap My Mind," he wrote on the social networking site. "I apologize to all of my Supporters, Friends and Family. Things Happen, No excuses. My only regret is letting ya'll down... Peace."


Corey, born Peter Cory Pankey Jr., was arrested in the Bronx, New York Saturday when plainclothes cops responding to a fight in the area apprehended him when he exited a cab and found a loaded, unregistered Taurus .9mm handgun in his backpack as well as a face mask reports XXL.

 

"This was a big mistake on my part," Gunz told the New York Daily News after his release. "I didn't have any intentions of harming anyone or committing a criminal activity. So many young people look up to me and I need to fight though this."

 

New York has notoriously strict gun laws. Lil Wayne, who signed Cory to his Young Money label last year spent 10 months locked up in Rikers Island in 2010 on a gun charge. Prodigy of Mobb Deep was released from prison in March 2011 after serving 3 years on similar charges.

 

One of the rapper's biggest supporters is Nick Cannon, who executive produced Cory's MTV show "Son of a Gun." Cannon tweeted that he would be there for Cory if needed.

 

"Great dude, just a little bad luck. @CoryGunz is holding strong and will be out shortly. Family is here if and when anything is needed," Cannon wrote.

 

 

Peter Gunz said he believes his son was searched illegally.

 

"It was definitely an illegal search," Peter said. "He just got out of a cab and police ran up on him and they were in plainclothes. He didn't know they were cops - he thought he was getting robbed."


If convicted, Cory faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three and 1/2 years.
