ATLANTA – A judge in Atlanta has dismissed felony drug charges against rapper Lil Wayne.

The Grammy-award winning rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was arrested in August 2006 at a hotel. Atlanta police said they found unmarked bottles containing hydrocodone and a generic form of Xanax, along with a small amount of marijuana.

On Tuesday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson granted the rapper’s request to suppress on the basis of an illegal search. Carter’s attorney, William Head, said his client wasn’t staying in the room where the arrest was made.

Carter currently faces drug charges in Arizona, stemming from a January 2008 arrest, and a weapons charge from 2007 in New York.
