WATCH: 2 Chainz apologizes to Okla. in MTV interview
NEW YORK – Rapper 2 Chainz is now apologizing to Oklahoma City after a run in with OKC police August.
In an interview with MTV, he talked about his recent legal trouble and the amount of privacy celebrities give up today.
At the end of August, the rapper and 10 others on his tour bus were detained and eventually taken into custody after performing with Lil’ Wayne and T.I. at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Hours later the performer, who was born Tauhed Epps, and the others were released from jail after being arrested on a complaint of obstructing a public officer.
Oklahoma City police said the rapper’s tour bus was driving along I-40 when police pulled it over for a broken tail light.
OKC Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said, “When officers approached that tour bus, they noticed there was evidence of drug usage.”
2 Chainz denied having any illegal substances on his bus.
