You can forget the story earlier this week about 2 Chainz being robbed in San Francisco since the Atlanta rapper refuted the claims on his Twitter account.
But he was arrested for drug possession while leaving Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday.
According to reports, Mr. Chainz was arrested for possession of marijuana and Promethazine (used to make the rapper-friendly concoction “sizzurp”), which he had in his checked luggage; he was escorted off the plane to get booked.
This is the second drug-related arrest this year for the rapper born Tauheed Epps in College Park. In February, Maryland police pulled over his van and arrested him for marijuanapossession.
As for that alleged robbery, San Francisco police told Radio.com that there was no robbery, while 2 Chainz himself tweeted, “Nobody took Anything from me, i didn’t get shot, I’m not in jail, Don’t know wut else to tell ya. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, maybe next time.”
2 Chainz is due toheadline the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash 18 at Philips Arena on Saturday. He’s also part of the “America’s Most Wanted” tour with Lil Wayne and T.I., but not the date that plays Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood on July 12.
