Jim Jones is officially facing a handful of felony drug and firearm charges for his June arrest in Georgia after a police chase … TMZ has learned.

The rapper’s been hit with 3 counts of possession of a controlled substance and 2 counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony — so 5 felony charges total … according to new legal docs.

Jones has also been charged with a 6th count of possession of marijuana, less than an ounce … which is a misdemeanor.

We broke the story … Jones was busted on June 20 in Coweta County when a car he was a passenger in led cops on a chase. When it finally stopped, cops searched the vehicle and found marijuana, oxycodone, Percocet, vape cartridges and 2 loaded pistols.

Neither Jones nor the 3 others in the car, including the driver, admitted possession of the items … so they were all arrested.

Jones’ arraignment on the charges is scheduled for later this month. If convicted on all charges, he faces up to decades in prison.
