Rapper 2 Chainz

Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested for obstructing a police officer in Oklahoma City. The Atlanta rapper was taken into custody early Thursday morning after a nine-hour standoff with police. 2 Chainz had just performed in concert with rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne hours earlier.

UK's Daily Mail reports that the rapper's tour bus was pulled over when officers observed a broken tail light. After pulling the bus over, police detected the pungent aroma of marijuana in the air and attempted to board the bus, but the occupants locked the bus and prevented the police from boarding.

When the bus occupants refused to exit the bus, the vehicle was towed -- occupants and all -- to a nearby police training facility.

Drake new music

Rapper superstar Drake wrestled Jay Z's crown from him in 2012 and never looked back. Don't think Jigga isn't feeling Drake's heat. The self-professed "light skin Keith Sweat" released his 2nd single, "All Me," off his much anticipated new album, Nothing Was The Same, available Sept 17. Drake, with the help of rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean, lets Jay Z know that he got to the top all by himself. So confident is Drake that he even let Sean outshine him on his own track -- something Jay Z would never do.

    2 Chainz driver's license

    Rapper 2 Chainz isn't a part of the geriatric club of aging rappers after all. At 35, 2 Chainz is at least a decade younger than his elders Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Nas, who will soon be card-carrying AARP members. The same gang bangers who robbed 2 Chainz at gunpoint during a brazen daylight heist in San Francisco, tweeted a photo of his driver's license and his VISA debit card as proof.

    Video Proof That 2 Chainz Was Robbed

    It looks like rapper 2 Chainz told a lie when he claimed he wasn't robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco last Sunday. Maybe he forgot the critical details of the robbery in all the excitement?

    Gossip website TMZ.com has obtained video footage of 2 Chainz and his hard leg crew being chased down by 2 men and robbed at gunpoint.

    The video shows 2 Chainz and his entourage casually strolling down the street single file when at least 2 men approach, one pointing a gun directly at 2 Chainz's head. Footage from two surveillance cameras shows 2 Chainz and his crew turning and running as fast as they can when the gunman approaches.

    The robbers obviously targeted the Atlanta rapper. One of them is so confident that he skips after the fleeing rapper.

    Rapper 2 Chainz Was Robbed

    Rapper 2 Chainz is not hard at all. He's a nice, down-to-earth, thoughtful sort of man, who you wouldn't expect to see strolling around San Francisco with 5 killers.

    That helps to explain how 2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, along with 5 members of his entourage, was robbed by 2 men, one armed with a gun, in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

    2 Chainz was relieved of his wallet and 24Kt gold jewelry including a Versace timepiece and Versace medallion, all of which were catalogued on his Instagram page for easy reference.

    Lil Wayne pays the IRS $7 million

    When Lil Wayne hits the road on July 9th with rappers T.I. and 2 Chainz for the 40-city 'America's Most Wanted' tour, rapper Future will not be with them.

    "I haven't been on the road in a minute," Weezy told MTV News on May 3. "I'm ready to get back out there and I'm going out there with Future and 'em, and they're going to obviously take over; I'm just playing the back field," he said.

    That same day, PepsiCo announced it was dropping Lil Wayne (and the tour) from a sponsorship contract due to offensive lyrics in one of his songs.

    Unlike Sean Combs, I bet rapper 2 Chainz pays his bills. The rapper was wrongly detained by New York's finest when they mistook 2 Chainz's rap accessory for a dangerous weapon at NY's LaGuardia airport.

    2 Chainz, formerly Tity Boi, was released after the po-po examined the 4-finger ring chain, which police assumed was an illegal pair of brass knuckles.

    "They tried to assassinate my character, they tried to assassinate my swag," 2 Chainz told MTV News in an exclusive telephone interview. "It was just a negative dilemma earlier where someone misconstrued a piece of jewelry for a weapon and stuff."
