Grammy winning rapper Jay-Z and three others were arrested on charges of gun possession on Manhattan’s West Side early Friday, reports CBS News. The identity of the three others was not announced. Jay-Z is to be among those (including Nelly and Juvenile) who are set to headline the Saturday’s Easter Jam 2001 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, the night before Easter. It is not yet known if he will make the concert. The rapper’s latest album, “The Dynasty: Roc La Familia 2000,” is currently Number 95 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
