2 Chainz Facing Jail Time Following August Arrest

2 Chainz facing up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine following August arrest in Oklahoma City.

Although it’s been four months since Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz and his entourage were arrested in Oklahoma City following an appearance at Lil Wayne’s "America’s Most Wanted" show at Chesapeake Energy Arena, it now appears that 2 Chainz is looking at possible jail time and a $1,000 fine as a result of the arrest.

According to AllHipHop.com, 2 Chainz was hit with a misdemeanor charge this week for obstructing an officer. The rapper shared his thoughts on the charge in a tweet sent earlier today (December 24).


The Oklahoma City arrest took place August 21 when 2 Chainz and those on his tour bus refused to let authorities search their bus after reportedly being pulled over for a broken taillight. Hours after being pulled over, 2 Chainz and nine others on the bus were arrested.

News of 2 Chainz’ misdemeanor charge comes weeks after the rapper declared that he would be going “cold turkey on all criminal activities” during an interview on MTV’s “RapFix Live.” While speaking with the show’s host, Chainz also revealed that he doesn’t want the notoriety that comes with taking mug shots and going to jail.

“And then for me I made so many mistakes…I made mistakes when I was like previous to being in this position,” said the rapper. “To where I don’t wanna do mug shots. I don’t wanna be on these TMZs and these news [outlets]. I’m not trying to portray that. I don’t wanna be the rapper that’s tryna sell albums to go to jail or whatever it is.”

NewsOK.com reports that Oklahoma City attorney Mack Martin, who represents 2 Chainz and the three other men charged, is “hoping to have the matter resolved in the very near future.”

    "this is a scenario where they were looking for drugs and guns and found absolutely nothing and had no motive to search the bus outside of it being a rapper and his entourage on board" People don't face prison time for doing nothing. Even if you get pulled over and have nothing on you, but you decide to resist arrest, or fight the cop, then guess what? You're arrested and face doing some time when they dig some other shit up to charge you with. Shit that you did voluntarily.

      I don't wish incarceration on any man of color especially over some music, I don't understand why you whites always blame HipHop music and rap entertainers for the problems and issues that plague communities and society.

      "Africa takes care of each other" Yet back in the 18th and 19th centuries, africans were selling africans as slaves. There is still mass genocide in african countries from armed militias, africans killing africans. Fucking ignorant nig. You wish it was that simple.

      Africa is bouncing back slowly but surely, colonialization, imperialism and Apartheid along with Europe under developing her has slowed her rise but she will rise again. Rules apply to everyone but it's a proven fact that Law Enforcment profile and target non-whites and this is a scenario where they were looking for drugs and guns and found absolutely nothing and had no motive to search the bus outside of it being a rapper and his entourage on board.

      It's easy to profile people when they act like the rules don't apply to them.
