NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Rapper Juelz Santana will remain jailed pending a hearing on weapons charges stemming from a gun found in a bag at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport.

Santana made an initial court appearance Monday in federal court in Newark. He had turned himself in to authorities earlier Monday, three days after security personnel at the airport found a loaded .38-caliber handgun in a carry-on bag containing his identification.

His girlfriend, reality TV star Kimbella posted on Instagram earlier today.

Authorities say Santana had fled the area, leaving two bags behind.

A judge has ordered Santana to remain in custody until a preliminary hearing scheduled for March 26.

Santana is a 36-year-old New York City-born rapper who lives in Totowa, New Jersey. His real name is LaRon James.

An attorney representing Santana hasn’t returned a message seeking comment.

    I can’t name anything this young man has made, but I can tell you that he needs better people. This stupidity has got to stop. Folks listen – you can go out and buy a gun legitimately today. You might have to wait on the background check, but you can buy a gun and then register it and apply for a concealed weapon’s permit if that is your desire. If this young man would have followed those steps, he would have been cited and released. Mistakes happen. If you possess the gun legally- you will have a better outcome (or should). A country music singer did the same thing last year and I don’t think he spent a day in jail. Oh yea, if you desire to travel on an airplane with your gun call ahead of time and ask about the rules. Most airlines will allow you to put certain types of weapons in checked baggage. Get out of the jail/prison pipeline. In my best Fred Sanford voice, “You Big Dummy.” Men start mentoring these “boys.” He is limiting his options in life if he becomes a felon. This ain’t a game. Makes me wanna holla.

    Hell perhaps he forgot he had the gun on him, he probably carries it for protection, like the white kids carry ARs and AKs. Second, he got Kimbrella holdin’ him down, she’s his ride or die chick. Why didn’t she make sure lil homey wasn’t strapped before leaving for the airport. Some team they are, Clyde with a fake Bonnie.

    36??? Isn’t it time to grow up and get a real career. I SMDH everytime some dude over 30 steps to me talking about they’re an “aspiring rapper.” Hilarious and pathetic at the same time.
