The rapper’s attorney told TMZ they were “very pleased with the result” because the charge had a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Gates was issued a warrant for failing to appear in a 2013 gun case; the warrant was served the same day Gates was ending his sentence in Florida for kicking a woman in the face at one of his shows.

Gates was on the roster for the May 28 “Soundset” festival at the MN State Fairgrounds in Saint Paul, Minn.
