Dipset AKA Diplomats rapper Juelz Santana is headed to the Big House. The Harlem-born rapper took a plea deal from the feds that will see him spend 27 months behind bars as a result of him pleading guilty to bringing a loaded .38 caliber gun (and a few Oxycodone pills) inside a travel bag and into Newark International Airport back in March.
Santana, birth name LaRon Louis James, confessed to unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
On a recent episode of ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ Santana said he expected to be sentenced to 27 to 37 months on the charges.
Santana initially ran, and got away, from authorities at the airport once the pistol was discovered. He later turned himself in.

The new fronts improved Santana’s smile, and stifled the immense amount of ridicule he experienced from nasty Twitter users, some of whom dubbed him “Chewelz” after this photo surfaced:
