NEW YORK (AP) — A former Jay Z protege has pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge.

The Daily News says rapper Wais P entered the plea Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court. The 42-year-old rapper, whose real name is Malcolm Byer, could be sentenced to time served.

His attorney says he’s happy with the outcome of the case. He says there was no accident and no injury, and what his client “really wanted all along was treatment for alcoholism.”

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn rapper faces trial in May on a charge of promoting prostitution. Byer was arrested on the charge last year after appearing in court on his 2014 DWI case.

His attorneys in that case say they’ll argue that the language used in hip-hop culture doesn’t mean Byer is really managing prostitutes.
