LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Tennessee rapper wants to withdraw his guilty plea from a weapons charge that was filed after he was arrested with a gun following a shooting at a Little Rock nightclub that left 25 injured last summer.

An attorney for Ricky Hampton said in a filing in federal court Monday that Hampton wanted a hearing on his request to withdraw his guilty plea and have substitute counsel appointed. Hampton in March pleaded guilty and admitted he possessed a gun at an eastern Arkansas night club a week before the Little Rock shooting.

Hampton, who uses the stage name “Finese2Tymes,” was performing on July 1, 2017, at Little Rock’s Power Ultra Lounge when the shooting began. No one was killed but more than two dozen people were injured, mostly from gunshots.
