2 Chainz was among 11 men arrested following a nine-hour standoff over access to his tour bus. After police stopped the rapper’s vehicle in an Oklahoma traffic stop, its occupants refused to let officers climb on board and search for drugs.
“This shit will make u go crazy,” 2 Chainz tweeted on Thursday afternoon. “Our bus gets pulled [over once] a week and they always say ‘I smell weed I need to search ur bus’. Sht gets tiring.”
2 Chainz’s tweet describes what seems to have happened around midnight on Wednesday, when police pulled over a bus on Oklahoma’s Interstate 40. According to Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow, the vehicle was stopped due to a broken taillight; as the driver exited, police “found evidence of drug use”.
That wasn’t the end of the story. Having only recently been found not guilty of drugs charges, 2 Chainz wasn’t willing to accommodate police investigators. Once the driver was outside the bus, the people inside closed and locked the door. They reportedly insisted on seeing a search warrant – setting off a night-long deadlock.
In the very early morning, warrants are slow to be drawn up. “I work [too] hard for this,” 2 Chainz tweeted at 5:33 am. Around 7:30 am, officers towed the rapper’s bus to a police training centre and finally served the occupants with a warrant. 2 Chainz and his entire entourage were arrested “on complaints of interfering with official process”, Wardlow told News OK. Although police say although drugs were found on the vehicle, detectives are still trying to determine whom they belong to and whether charges will be pressed.
2 Chainz has denied that there were any drugs on the bus. “Too blessed too stress,” he tweeted after finally being released. The 35-year-old MC is currently on a US tour, opening for Lil Wayne and promoting his aptly named new single, Feds Watching. Earlier this summer, 2 Chainz’s track with Wiz Khalifa We Own It (Fast & Furious) reached No 6 on the UK singles charts.

John Oliver explains how Dems can bring the pain to Mitch McConnell — even if he wins re-election
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver returned to his Sunday show, fresh off of an Emmy win, to explain how the United States got so incredibly f*cked up.
Oliver began by remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and noting that her seat will be taken over by a far-right conservative justice who will unmake healthcare, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights and more things Americans have indicated they want.
He played a clip of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claiming that America is a "center-right" country, which Oliver called outright "bullsh*t." Not only do Americans overwhelming support reproductive freedom, they also support LGBTQ equality. At the same time, Americans also believe, overwhelmingly, that President Donald Trump shouldn't be allowed to appoint the next justice.
Trump campaign blames Dems for ex-campaign manager Parscale’s reported self-harm threat
The Trump campaign is blaming "Democrats and disgruntled RINOs" for the reported self-harm threat of its former campaign manager Brad Parscale.
"The disgusting, personal attacks from Democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to this man and his family," said Trump campaign’s communications director Tim Murtaugh.
Former Army prosecutor explains why Trump will ‘get laughed out of court’ if he tries to steal the election
Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.
Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.
