TMZ.com reports, rapper 2 Chainz was arrested earlier today New York’s LaGuardia airport for carrying brass knuckles.
2 Chainz formerly known as Tity Boi, who is featured on Nicki Minaj’s “Beez On The Trap” and G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy” tracks, thought it was a good idea to throw some old school brass knuckles in his carry-on.
As the story developed, a source close to the rapper claims that 2 Chainz wasn’t packing brass knuckles … it was just a harmless 4-finger ring — this according to sources close to the hip hop star.
The ring says “DOPE” in big letters — and sources tell TMZ, 2 Chainz rocked it no problem at an Atlanta club called the Velvet Room on Sunday.
According to sources, Chainz then flew to NYC without incident, but when he tried to leave the city today, TSA at LaGuardia Airport mistook the jewelry for a dangerous weapon.
2 Chainz was arrested at the airport for possession of a criminal weapon this afternoon when officials found the 4-finger instrument in his bag.
The Port Authority PD had no comment.
