LATEST: Rap mogul Master P and his brother SILKK THE SHOCKER pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of carrying unregistered loaded guns yesterday (30MAR05).

Master P, real name PERCY MILLER, was arrested on 27 January (05) after police at the University of California, Los Angeles, stopped their leased car because it didn't have licence plates, according to authorities.

An officer spotted a gun near the driver's seat and another was found under the front passenger seat, where Miller was sitting, according to a police report.

At the time of the stop, Silkk, real name VYSHONN MILLER, was driving.

Both men remain free on $35,000 (GBP18,421) bail.

A third brother, COREY 'C-MURDER' MILLER, is appealing his second-degree murder conviction to Louisiana's Supreme Court. He was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003 for shooting a 16-year-old man to death at a nightclub in a New Orleans suburb.

Earlier this month (MAR05), a Louisiana state appeals court overturned a judge's decision to grant him a new trial.
