Lil Wayne‘s Miami Beach mansion was raided by police and his assets were seized on orders from a judge stemming from a civil case involving the rapper and a private jet leasing company, local station WSVN reports.

Helicopter footage from the scene captured authorities hauling items from Wayne’s house into a truck, including what appeared to be wrapped artwork.

Last month, Signature Group successfully sued Wayne for $2 million over missed payments. At the time, according to court documents obtained by the Miami New Times, Miami-Dade County Judge Lisa S. Walsh denied Signature’s request for a “break order” — which would allow police to enter Wayne’s house with or without permission — because the group couldn’t prove there were valuable assets on the premises.

Walsh, however, reversed her decision and signed a new order on Friday, October 30th. Her decision was partially based on an affidavit from a real estate agent who, according to Signature’s suit, “had recently been inside the defendant’s home and attested that there was assets inside.”

Neither Lil Wayne, nor a representative for the rapper, has yet to comment on the raid or repossession.

Even with the lawsuit — and other ongoing legal battles — Wayne has remained busy as ever on the mic. The rapper recently appeared alongside Chris Brown and Big Sean on a track from DJ Khaled’s new album, I Changed a Lot, as well as R. Kelly’s new single, “Switch Up.” On Monday, Weezy announced on Twitter that he’ll release a new mixtape, No Ceilings 2, on Thanksgiving.
