2 Chainz was arrested and released last night for marijuana possession.
The Atlanta, Ga. rapper was traveling with six other passengers in a white van when Maryland State Police pulled over the vehicle around 10 p.m. Cops proceeded to arrest only the artist (formerly known as Tity Boi) for marijuana possession, despite later claims that he doesn’t smoke.
While at the station, policemen asked the Def Jam signee for a picture that he later posted to Instagram. Upon release, he took to Twitter to express his frustration over the situation and how he was actually arrested for a weed grinder of which his security guard claimed ownership.
"Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh," wrote 2 Chainz, posting the above photo on Instagram. "We to jail for a grinder??? REALLY??? ... I work hard and pray even harder , we gone always b good yall.... Not to mention my security said it was his and they said , he don't smoke ,, how da fuk u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!"
2 Chainz, who later performed at University of Maryland Eastern Shore, most recently released his solo debut Based on a T.R.U. Story, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 147,000 copies sold.
