Kevin Gates recently visited C-Murder in prison, and now he is reportedly under investigation for bringing more than $300 with him into the prison.

The Baton Rouge Advocate is reporting that Gates allegedly flashed handfuls of $100 bills inside Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel.

Images of him with the cash were shared on Instagram:

"As indicated in the photograph, it appears Mr. Gates had a large sum of cash, which is unacceptable, and a violation," said department spokesman Ken Pastorick. "It is against Elayn Hunt Correctional Center policy to bring case exceeding $300 into the prison, and any amount above that is considered contraband."

He has since deleted the image:

"I went up to the Prison today to visit #LeeLucus #CMurder #Mac #BigMarlo and #Cornbread everybody in these photos have been gone over 20 years," Gates wrote in his Instagram post.
