News

It was only a matter of time before another hip hop artist got arrested ant another airport.

G.O.O.D. Music rapper 2 Chainz, famed for his T.R.U. Realigion mixtape and the song “Spend It”, was arrested today (May 22) at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

According to TMZ, 2 Chainz was detained at approximately 1:45PM for carrying a set of brass knuckles.

2 Chainz, born Tauheed Epps was said to be entering the Delta terminal for a flight to North Carolina when TSA found the weapon in his bag.

After the discovery of the brass knuckles was made, police were called and Chainz was taken into custody for misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon.

Once again it seems that people don’t understand, u cannot carry any weapons on any airport. I mean come on guys, have we not learned anything over the past few years? That’s almost as bad as lighting a cigarette next to a gasoline pump.

At press time, 2 Chainz was still in custody with the New York police.

UPDATE:

2 Chainz has been released from custody after officials at LaGuardia Airport in New York mistakenly thought his gold 4-fingered ring were brass knuckles.

The rapper expressed his exuberance on Twitter.

“RALEIGH, NC we on da wayyyyy!!! TurnUPPP,” he said via the social network.” 2 Chainz was en route to Raleigh to join Drake and Meek Mill for the Club Paradise.
