2 Chainz Charged With Felony Drug Possession

The charges against 2 Chainz stem from his June arrest at Los Angeles International Airport.

2 Chainz has been charged with felony drug possession, according to TMZ.

He is scheduled to be arraigned next week.

The charge against the Atlanta rapper is tied to his June 2013 arrest at Los Angeles International Airport for alleged codeine possession.

In June, it was reported that when he was apprehended, 2 Chainz had under an ounce of marijuana and was also in possession of codeine, one of the main ingredients in sizzurp.

TSA officials allegedly found the codeine in one of the Def Jam artist’s checked bags. 

The charge carries a potential three-year prison sentence.

      The weed would be a misdemeanor, it's the Promethazine that carries the felony charge.

    im so glad this happened, karma is a bitch, i bet that chick he clowned from the video is laughing now

    If you are used to drinking lean all the time and cant get any, promethazine on its own will help you sleep, it is also used for nausea (travel sickness etc.) & allergy relief, the Codeine in the syrup is what gets you high, the Promethazine is what makes you sleepy.
    • Walt
      Promethazine helps you not feel nausea from the codeine, thats why they are mixed together. Everybody thinks they are a lean expert but none of you nigga prob even know that sweet sweet taste
    • BRICKS LOCAL
      and is the reason you feel sleepy when drinking lean, clown

    Everybody says "2 Chainz is actually really smart. he graduated from college. He just acts hood to sell records. He's really smart." Scientists are smart, he's just rich. And he was a basketball player at an all black university, I wonder how he passed his classes? I wouldn't have said this a year ago but he acts like a taller version of Lil Jon so I'm lead to believe that he is in fact an ignorant ghetto person after all...

      Did he graduate?

    Codeine is a pain reliever/cough suppressant and a schedule IV controlled substance while Promethazine is an anti nausea medication regulated no more strictly than simple antibiotics. They are mixed together in a prescription cough syrup but the codeine is ingredient that people get high off of when they drink it in excess. Promethazine is basically prescription Dramamine and does not produce any sort of high if taken in excess. If anyone ever tries to act like they are on lean drinking plain promethazine they are the most ignorant people alive. As a side note: Codeine is very dangerous because the extent to which individuals can metabolize the drug varies tremendously. MANY people can not adequately break down the drug so it can quickly build up to toxic levels in your body causing sedation, breathing difficulties, and even death (RIP Pimp C, you were a slow metabolizer)
    • Walt
      Pimp C was a slow metabolizer? what the fuck are you on? He was prob drinking lean nigga when you was drinking off your momma's tit. He drank it for years and built up a tolerance and then OD, you dumb fuck
    • The 420 CHRONICLES
      An overdose of cough syrup and a preexisting sleep apnea condition killed Chad Butler, better known as rapper Pimp C, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner. His death has been ruled an accident. Butler was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel on Dec. 4. He was 33. He'd been in L.A. for a concert with rapper Too $hort. Though early reports suggested the cough syrup was over-the-counter, assistant chief coroner Ed Winter said the Promethazine/Codeine found in his system was from a prescription-based product. Winter also cited sleep apnea, a disorder that often causes blockage of the airway during sleep. According to the National Institutes of Health, the condition affects more than 12 million Americans. Winter suggested that Pimp C's family was aware he suffered from the condition. Pimp C's death came during a commercial peak for his duo UGK, a Port Arthur-based group that was a pioneering hip-hop force in Houston. He and rapper Bun B (Bernard Freeman) released a two-CD opus Underground Kingz in August, which became its first chart-topping album. Two days after Pimp C's death UGK received its first Grammy nomination. An October Chronicle report stated that drug experts have yet to determine definitive negative health effects of cough syrup abuse. But the city's innovative and revered DJ Screw, who was notorious for ingesting codeine-based cough syrup, died of a heart attack in 2000 at age 29. Last year another local rapper, Big Moe, died of a heart attack at 33. But Winter suggested a more direct correlation between the syrup and Pimp C's death. "Sleep apnea, you stop breathing," he said. "Coupled with a medication that suppresses your respiratory abilities, you end up with an accidental death." Pimp C's death rattled the local scene. Musical tributes poured out, including songs by local rappers such as Lil' Flip as well as other hip-hop stars like T.I. Last week, Bun B said he's at work on his own tribute to his childhood friend. He also suggested that there will be more Pimp C music to come. "You're definitely gonna hear more from Pimp," he said. "His wife controls all his stuff, and I know she's supposed to be doing a solo album. She'll do whatever she feels she needs to do, but I definitely think she'll put out another album." Bun also says there's enough material for another UGK recording. "We have to keep the legacy going," he said. "But we want to make sure we do it smart, do it right." This Friday, Bun B will perform his first concert since Pimp C's death. He'll also attend the Grammy awards show, which takes place Sunday in Los Angeles.

    "codeine also known as promethazine" that is false hhdx get it together. it's two different chemicals lol who writes for this site?
    • Loki
      Totally, codeine syrup (opioid) typically has promethazine added to it. In North America at least. However, as you said they are too separate ingredients. Who does write this garbage? Use google before you publish.....
