Despite being busted for marijuana possession, rapper 2 Chainz was snapped in a photo with his arresting officers. The question remains, who initiated the shot: 2 Chainz or the cops?
The Los Angeles Times reports that the rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was pulled over for speeding when cops smelled marijuana. Upon searching the vehicle, police found a grinder and traces of weed in a backpack. He was arrested shortly thereafter.
He was cited and later released, but not before Chainz posed with the officers who originally pulled him over.
