Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz has decided to put an end to mounted chatter about him not only being robbed and shot at this week but also getting arrested last night (June 11) in California.
While he resisted denying the arrest reports, Chainz did reveal not having a long stay in jail.
“Life gone have its ups and downs , as long as u in the middle u good. So we good yal,” he tweeted June 12th.
“Believe none of what you hear and half what u can see…. We outchea”
“Bond money https://vine.co/v/bl53YgTOggt”
“Once again if hating, it’s your mama and your dad fault . Genetics haha”
“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’s Twitter)
Buzz behind yesterday’s arrest surfaced online late Tuesday evening.
2 Chainz was just arrested at LAX … after cops allegedly found weed on the “I’m Different” rapper as he was trying to board an airplane, TMZ has learned. Sources tell us … 35-year-old 2 Chainz is currently being booked for possession of marijuana after he was caught with pot in Terminal 5. Just yesterday, 2 Chainz — real name Tauheed Epps — was tweeting about how impressed he was with the weed in San Francisco. So far, cops are not commenting on the situation. (TMZ)
Reports claim Chainz received a felony charge and possessed marijuana.
4:43 PM PT: 2 Chainz has been booked on felony narcotics possession. Law enforcement sources tell us … Chainz was in possession of Promethazine — one of the 2 main ingredients in sizzurp. He also had pot, but less than an ounce. 7:30 PM PT: According to law enforcement, 2 Chainz was on board an outbound flight waiting to take off when TSA officials discovered the drugs in his checked luggage. He was subsequently removed from the aircraft before it departed, and placed under arrest. (TMZ)
Earlier this week, Chainz found himself connected to robbery and shooting reports.
UPDATE: TMZ initially reported that 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco, but SF police spoke to Radio.com and said a member of 2 Chainz’s entourage, and not the rapper himself, was the victim. The rapper’s group was approached by a man with a gun, who fired a shot into the air. Everyone fled the scene, but one poor bastard fell down and the perpetrator proceeded to “rob him of an unknown item.” The suspect is still at large, and cops say all involved in the investigation “are being very uncooperative.” (Idolator)
The rapper had spent most of last weekend in California for a radio concert.
2 Chainz is currently in Oakland for the KMEL Summer Jam . Apparently he attended the Green Door some time before his gig. He was there to buy marijuana cookies, according to GA Followers. There are several unconfirmed reports trickling through via Twitter. A strange Instagram post from an individual named Lil Blood recalling his version of events has popped up since the report. “2 Chainz got his cornball ass stripped in the city,” says the post, which is captioned, “Next time f*ck with some real n*ggas cuzin.” So far, all is quiet on the 2 Chainz Twitter front but, sadly, it’s most likely the man has no chainz at all anymore. Updates to come. (Music Feeds)
