A Brooklyn rapper was allegedly busted with a loaded .45-caliber handgun after being stopped for an illegal u-turn, The Post has learned.

The rapper, Sheff G, was stopped at Farragut Road and E. 42nd Street just before 5 p.m. Tuesday for allegedly driving recklessly through East Flatbush without a front license plate, according to police and court records.

Cops then searched the car and found the loaded firearm in a hidden compartment in the car, according to sources and court documents.

The .45-caliber Glock and nine rounds were recovered, a criminal complaint reads.

The rapper, whose real name is Michael Williams, 22, was charged with three counts of criminal possession of a weapon and two traffic violations, court records show.

“We will vigorously defend these charges,” the rapper’s attorney, Mitchell Elman, said. “I have no further comment at this time.”
