Headline Goes Here

Trick Daddy, whose real name is Maurice Young, was arrested on drug and gun charges.

MIRAMAR, Fla. - A South Florida rapper was arrested Thursday after Broward Sheriff's Office deputies found cocaine, a gun and ammunition inside the convicted felon's Miramar home, according to an arrest report.

Trick Daddy, whose real name is Maurice Young, was backing out of his driveway Thursday morning when a BSO narcotics detective stopped him and informed him that his license was expired, the report said.

Young said he was aware and asked if it was because of his child support payments. It was at that time that BSO deputies revealed they were there conducting drug surveillance.

The Miami-born rapper initially admitted to having cocaine and "maybe marijuana roaches" inside his home and signed a consent form, but he revoked it after detectives made entry, the report said.

Deputies said they found cocaine in the master bedroom nightstand, a .9 mm handgun under a pillow and a box of ammunition in the downstairs bedroom and closet.

Young faces charges of cocaine possession, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and driving with a suspended license.

He is probably best known for his songs "I'm a Thug" and "Take It To Da House."
