It was later reported that cocaine and a firearm turned up on the plane during the search-which took place while the rapper was being held.

The aircraft-a Gulfstream GV capable of accommodating up to 14 passengers and crew-had been traveling from California.

It landed at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport on Monday evening before agents boarded waving a search warrant.

The search involved investigators with the Miami-Dade police, FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and other agencies, according to the Herald.

Wayne's lawyers rushed to the scene after he contacted them from the tarmac, TMZ reported.

Agents discovered that Lil Wayne, known as Weezy, was a passenger on the plane along with others whose details are unknown.

But Wayne's defense attorney Howard Srebnick said his client was later "cleared" to leave the scene by investigators on Monday night.

Wayne later updated fans on Twitter, telling them: "All goody!"

He also referred to a previous tweet written in support of NFL team Green Bay Packers that read: "GO PACK GO !!!"

In his tweet on Monday night, a seemingly unfazed Weezy wrote of the authorities: "I think they thought I was talking abt a different 'Pack' in my last tweet. But anyway GO PACK GO !!!"

The Sun Online reached out to Lil Wayne's reps for comment and received no reply.

CHRISTMAS BEHIND BARS

No arrests or charges were immediately filed, but any suspects could face Christmas behind bars-as the federal courts are shut for the holidays-meaning bail hearings cannot be held.

Lil Wayne, who owns a 10,000sq ft home in Miami Beach, made headlines in May when he refused to play the Rolling Loud hip-hop festival in Miami Gardens because of a mandatory police check.

Before he was set to take the stage, he tweeted: "I'm sorry but I won't be performing.

"The Festival Police (Not Rolling Loud) made it mandatory that I had to be policed and checked to get on the stadium grounds.

"I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job and give you guys a great show."

It comes after it was revealed that police found a 70lb stash of marijuana and weapons aboard rapper Juice Wrld's jet on the night that he died.

Two 9mm pistols, 40-calibre pistol, a high capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets were also found stashed on board.

The rapper, real name Jarad Higgins, died of a suspected opioid overdose earlier this month after landing in his private jet in Chicago.

The 21-year-old had just touched down at Midway International Airport, where federal agents had been waiting to search his plane after receiving a tip-off that there were guns on board.

Cops later found six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, 70lbs of marijuana, two 9mm pistols, a .40-calibre pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine, and a metal-piercing bullet on the plane.

He died just six days after celebrating his 21st birthday.

Lil Wayne paid tribute to Juice Wrld on Sunday as he rolled up a joint in a video.

Wayne took a moment to motion a cross over his chest, saying "Rest In Peace Juice" and remembering the late rapper by listening to "Fine China", the collaboration between Juice WRLD and Future.
