Rapper Lil' Flip has vowed to fight gun and drug possession charges stemming from his arrest over Christmas (Dec12).

The Sunshine hitmaker, real name Wesley Weston, was driving in Louisiana last Wednesday (26Dec12) when cops pulled over his car and allegedly found marijuana and a gun in the vehicle.

Lil' Flip was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of drugs.

However, he is determined to fight the charges as he is adamant he was not carrying drugs and has a licence for the firearm, telling Tmz.com, "(I am) not one of those rappers who would carry drugs on me. I know better... I know they don't mess around in Louisiana and I wouldn't do anything to make me go to the big house (jail). Especially on Christmas night."
