Juelz Santana has been sentenced to 27 months in prison after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, TMZ reports. He was initially arrested in March after being caught with a handgun and oxycodone pills at Newark International Airport. Via TMZ:

A judge handed down the sentence Wednesday morning in Newark, NJ. He'll also be under supervised release for 12 months after he's completed his time. No date was set on when the rapper will have to surrender.

TMZ broke the story ... Juelz was busted back in March after trying to take a loaded .38-caliber handgun and eight oxycodone pills in his travel bag at Newark International Airport. After TSA security found the gun, Juelz booked it but he later turned himself in.

Just last month, Juelz Santana, Cam'ron, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zekey released the first Dipset album in 14 years.
