2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, was arrested Thursday (Feb. 14) during a traffic stop on his way to perform at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore's homecoming event, reports WBOC.
Troopers say they pulled over a white van around 10:15 p.m. local time. There were seven passengers in the van, but only Epps was arrested. He was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and later was released with a citation.
