Gun possession charges against Roddy Ricch were dismissed a day after the rapper was arrested in Queens ahead of his Governors Ball performance.

Ricch, 23, and two other accomplices were travelling in a car to attend the New York music festival when they were held at a checkpoint in Citi Field on Saturday evening.

NYPD officials said the Grammy-winning Atlantic Records artist and two other men were arrested after finding a loaded firearm under a passenger seat of their vehicle.

Police charged Ricch, Carlos Collins, 57, of New Jersey, and Michael Figueroa, 46, of Brooklyn with criminal possession of a weapon.

The cases against Ricch and Collins were dismissed later, while Figueroa was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Sunday.

Ricch, whose real name is Rodrick Moore, was among 20 artists who were scheduled to perform at the three-day NYC Governor's Ball.

"Unfortunately, Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today," the Governors Ball announced on Twitter Saturday night.
