Rapper Kevin Gates will be returning to Illinois to face weapons charges.
The 31-year-old entertainer was about to be released from the Polk County Jail when the Cook County, Ill., felony warrant was found.
During a first appearance hearing at 1 p.m. Friday in the Polk County Courthouse, Gates waived extradition to Cook County. He will be picked up by Illinois authorities within 30 days, said Assistant State Attorney Jake Orr. Chicago is in Cook County.
To waive extradition means a defendant agrees to return to the jurisdiction where he faces charges without a court hearing to determine whether the transfer is justified.
Circuit Judge Kelly Butz ordered him held without bail.
