A reminder to aspiring and up-and-coming rappers: there’s been rumors for a few years that police officers do monitor rapper’s activities a little more closely than they should. So, you know, watch out for incriminating yourself. SMH.
A couple hours after he tweeted this about the next stop on his “Waken Baken Tour”:
… up-an-coming rapper Wiz Khalifa was arrested and charged with, you guessed it, possession of marijuana.
Buzzing rapper Wiz Khalifa was arrested in Greenville, North Carolina during the early morning hours of Tuesday (November 9) for marijuana possession.
The Pittsburgh rapper was in town for a show at East Carolina University when his performance was cut short 45 minutes into the set, said reports.
Details are still sketchy, but sources say that authorities searched his tour bus … and found an unspecified amount of marijuana.
Wiz was subsequently arrested as he attempted to board his tour bus.
A fan-filmed clip of the arrest was uploaded to Youtube shortly after, showing the rapper being cuffed outside his tour bus and being carted away by police.
The 23-year-old rapper (real name: Cameron Jibril Thomaz), whose current hit “Black and Yellow” is in heavy rotation around the country, is known for his love for weed. In a past interview, Wiz boasted about spending around $10,000 a month, just on marijuana.
Umm… yea. These rappers are making it entirely too easy for one-time.
Wiz Khalifa is being held on $300,000 bail. On a sidenote, we wonder if Atlantic Records, home to Wiz Khalifa, T.I., B.G. and Boyz N Da Hood, keeps a special bank account for rapper bail and commissary.
