Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. Up this week, Luke explains why famous rappers such as Lil Wayne and T.I. get caught with illegal guns.

Earlier this month, Lil Wayne began a one-year prison sentence on a gun charge, prompting people to ask me why, with all of his money and security guards, Young Money would risk his career like that. Well, people have to understand the rappers’ workplace. Guys like Lil Wayne, T.I., Young Jeezy, 50 Cent — hard-core rappers — have to do shows in the hardest hard-core nightclubs where the thuggest of the thuggish congregate.
