Ricky Hampton
, the rapper known as Finese 2 Tymes who was performing when shooting broke out July 1 in a downtown club, leaving 25 wounded, entered a negotiated guilty plea in federal court today to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He'll be sentenced later. The plea agreement says the sentencing guideline recommendation will be enhanced because he is a previous felon and because the firearm he possessed was capable of holding a large magazine. He'll get credit in sentencing for taking responsibility. The agreement also specifies that he must forfeit two pistols — a 7.62x39 Century Arms and a .40 caliber Springfield XD.

Hampton was arrested the day after the Power Ultra Lounge shooting following a show in Birmingham. He was arrested on a charge related to a shooting at a Forrest City club. But a federal investigation later led to his indictment
