2 Chainz is not going to let his recent arrest in Oklahoma City, Okla., stop his promotional grind for his second album, 'B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time.' The Atlanta rhymer opened up about the tour bus standoff with police in a recent interview with Nitecap's Peter Bailey.

In the video, Deuce insists that he wasn't trying to start a riot, but rather express his civil liberties. He adds that his arrest was simply a waste of time for Oklahoma police.

"It's very unfortunate. The [arrests] takes up a lot of time and money from taxpayers who are actually the entertainers," he explains. "So for me it comes to a point where it's just overwhelming."

"Especially like the last time when nothing was on the bus, nothing was done," he continued. "At the end of the day, I'm not a bad guy. I'm only trying to feed my family and entertain there's nothing on the bus that's worth wasting time and money for."

Chainz says he's learned a valuable lesson from the incident and plans to avoid situations like that in the future.

"For me, I definitely try to learn from my mistakes," he said. "And I try to make my current situation better than my previous one. No matter if my previous one was a good situation, I want to make this one better than the last one."

Next up for 2 Chainz is the release of his new album, 'B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time,' due in stores Sept. 10.
