2 Chainz arrested in NYC over 4-finger ring? | Music News

2 Chainz will likely be a free man very soon, if he isn’t already. HipHopDX is reporting that what security agents thought was a set of brass knuckles was actually a gold-plated Dope Couture 4-Finger Ring. Apparently, TSA agents aren’t up on their Hip-Hop fashion.

Original story:

The TSA strikes again.

Atlanta MC 2 Chainz was arrested at New York’s LaGuardia Airport today after authorities found brass knuckles in his carry-on bag, TMZ reports.

The rapper was entering the Delta terminal to catch a flight to North Carolina for a show when security agents found the weapon in his luggage. Police were called to the scene and 2 Chainz was arrested at approximately 1:45pm EST. He faces charges of misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon.

A rep for the MC tells TMZ that his team is “handling the situation.”
