Ricky Hampton, who performs under the name Finese2Tymes, was sentenced Thursday in Little Rock. Hampton, who has a prior felony conviction, initially pleaded guilty in March to possessing a gun at a Forrest City nightclub in eastern Arkansas. He sought to withdraw his guilty plea in October, but withdrew the request two weeks later.
Hampton was performing at the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock last year when a shooting began. More than two dozen people were injured, but no one died.
