2 Chainz Maintains Innocence in Tour Bus Standoff
2 Chainz is maintaining his innocence in his tour bus standoff with Oklahoma police several weeks ago. In an interview with ‘RapFix Live,’ the Atlanta rapper expressed his frustration after being pulled over by authorities.
“I don’t do anything illegal,” he said. “You’re not gonna find a kilo on my bus. You’re not gonna find an unregistered [weapon]. I went to work all last year. I paid taxes. I did everything I was supposed to do. So maybe people need to start aiming at some criminals.”
“For me, I’m cold turkey on all criminal activities,” he continued. “I don’t wanna do anything criminal. It’s just about wasting your time, my time and taxpayers’ money.”
As we previously reported, when authorities searched Deuce’s tour bus they found drugs and guns. According to a police report, cops found two semi-automatic pistols, a 12-gauge shotgun, marijuana paraphernalia, prescription pills Hydrocodone and Flexeril, among other things.
Not to be judgmental, but that’s a lot of contraband for one man to be carrying on a tour bus.
“We told them the guns were there,” said Chainz about the police report. “Of course I have armed security around, because when somebody tried to kill me, the police didn’t stop my bus then and say, ‘We smell gunpowder in your hair.’ For a minute, everything was going so good that I probably let my guard down and got so relaxed.”
“It’s a certain feeling of frustration or being overwhelmed,” 2 Chainz added about his recent run-ins with the law. “When you’re an entertainer like myself, my schedule is basically online, it’s for anybody to look at from booking agents, to your mom, to criminals, the police, anybody. We give up a lot of privacy.”
2 Chainz’s latest album, ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time,’ is currently in stores now.
