Vic Mensa attends the Marc Jacobs Fall 2017 Show at Park Avenue Armory on February 16, 2017 in New York City.

Vic Mensa avoided some jail time over a loaded gun charge he landed back in March, when he was stopped by police while carrying a loaded gun in his auto.

The D.A.'s office tells TMZ the Roc Nation rapper will get 2 years probation after pleading no contest to carrying a concealed firearm in his vehicle.

It was originally reported he could face jail time over the incident, but he has now cut a plea deal to escape prison. The second count of carrying an unregistered loaded firearm was dropped.

He will get two years' probation and have to pay $500 (£380) as well as $1,325 (£1,000) in restitution. Since he just dropped his new album, "The Autobiography". we're guessing he'll pay. He told cops he had a concealed gun permit, but it was for another state.
