After his release from a Florida jail, Gates voluntarily turned himself over to Chicago authorities for a pending warrant on a weapons charge, according to TMZ. The weapons charge warrant stems all the way back from 2013.

Last Friday, March 24th, Gates waved his exercise to extradition meaning a transfer was accepted without a new hearing. Cook County’s Sheriff’s Department says his next court date is April 3rd, holding the Islah rapper held without bond.
