2 Chainz Arrested for Weed Possession, Takes Picture
What happens when you’re a well-known rapper that gets arrested for weed possession? Aside from getting write-ups in blogs across the internet, the police officers want your picture. At least, that’s what happened to the “I’m Different” rapper last week, with evidence on Instagram to support his ordeal.
On February 14, the hip-hop star from Atlanta rode in a white van with six other passengers in Maryland. At 10 p.m., state police officers pulled over the vehicle and arrested 2 Chainz only, although the rapper claims to not smoke.
At the station, policemen asked the rapper for a picture, which he later posted on Instagram and referenced in a tweet. Later after the incident, he performed at University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
After being released, he discussed his frustration with the incident on Twitter, explaining he was arrested for a weed grinder – one that his security guard admittedly owned. He wrote: "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh. 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!!!"
What’s your perspective on this incident? Regardless of the outcome for the rapper, should policemen have asked him for a picture? Or, was that behavior out of line?
