Rapper 2 Chainz has got some problems—with the law, that is. The 36-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper was picked up for marijuana possession in Maryland yesterday, after a van he was riding in with six others was pulled over and police found a marijuana grinder and traces of pot. 2 Chainz was was the only passenger arrested. Upon being released, he posed for a picture with two Maryland state police officers, and took to Twitter to let off some steam. "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh," he tweeted. "We to jail for a grinder??? REALLY??? ... I work hard and pray even harder , we gone always b good yall...." Despite the setback, he was able to make it to his show at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore last night. The rapper, formerly know as Tity Boi, made his major label debut with Based on a T.R.U. Story released last year. He also recently made his acting debut on the show 2 Broke Girls.
