The Atlanta rapper formerly known as Tity Boi was popped for allegedly carrying a weapon.
But you’ll never believe what the “weapon” was!
2Chainz wasn’t packing brass knuckles when he was arrested today in New York … it was just a harmless 4-finger ring — this according to sources close to the hip hop star.
The ring says “DOPE” in big letters — and sources tell TMZ, 2 Chainz rocked it no problem at an Atlanta club called the Velvet Room on Sunday.
According to sources close to the rapper, Chainz then flew to NYC without incident — with the ring in his luggage — but when he tried to leave the city today, TSA at LaGuardia Airport mistook the jewelry for a dangerous weapon.
2 Chainz was arrested at the airport for possession of a criminal weapon around 1:45pm this afternoon when officials found the 4-finger ring in his bag.
The rapper is currently still in custody as the NYC Port Authority PD works this all out.
Somebody get Diddy on line one…
*UPDATE* 2 Chainz is out and recently boarded a private jet to his next destination…
