Rapper 2Chainz Found Not Guilty For Drug Possession

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- Rapper 2Chainz left the Talbot County District Court late Wednesday afternoon not guilty after facing drug charges.

It was back in February when police pulled over Grammy nominated rap artist 2Chainz along route 50 for speeding.

The rap artist, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was on his way to perform at the Homecoming concert at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Police said 2Chainz was arrested for the possession of drug paraphernalia. A device used to smoke marijuana was found in the vehicle, according to authorities.

Despite his run in with the law, a crowd of people waited all day to get a chance to see him.
Kejah Smith, of Easton, brought her 2Chainz CD and a 'sharpie' hoping for an autograph.

"I wanted to see 2Chainz, the rapper, he is my favorite rapper. I like his music," said Smith as she smiled from ear to ear. " [I] would like to get his autograph. I have his CD and I would just love to see him."

Among the crowd was De'jun Stanford who was hoping he would get to see one of his idols.

"It's a good opportunity to see him in person," said Stanford, of Easton. "I knew that it could be my first time seeing a real rapper in Easton."

The February arrest of 2Chainz also has a pair of Maryland State Troopers in the middle of a controversy.

A picture shows the officers posing with the rapper prior to him posting bail.


The spokesman for the Maryland State Troopers spokesman told WBOC, "the admiinstrative investigation of those troopers is still open and the outcome will not be made public."
