It appears hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame missed the memo about checking guns at the airport.  TMZ says the rapper was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport Friday morning when a loaded gun was found in his carry-on luggage.  The weapon was discovered after a security scan. 

According to the website Waka, whose real name is Juaquin Malphurs, didn't have a permit so he was arrested and charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place. 

Last week, West Coast rap vet Too Short was cited at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California for a similar offense.  He is due to appear in court in Burbank on November 3rd.
