Rapper 2 Chainz returns to Oklahoma City tonight for concert
OKLAHOMA CITY – The rapper who had a run in with the law last time he was here is returning to Oklahoma City Tuesday night.
2 Chainz will be performing with Rihanna at the Chesapeake Energy Arena Tuesday night.
The rapper and 10 of his crew members were released from jail after being arrested on a complaint of obstructing a public officer back in August.
“2 Chainz,” whose real name is Tauhed Epps, was arrested less than 24 hours after performing with Lil’ Wayne at the Chesapeake Energy Center this summer.
The rapper’s tour bus was driving along I-40 when police pulled it over for a broken tail light.
Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said, “When officers approached that tour bus, they noticed there was evidence of drug usage.”
One person stepped off the bus and was taken into custody.
However, 10 others locked themselves on board.
Police eventually towed the bus to the police training center with everyone still locked inside.
Authorities were able to get a search warrant for the vehicle and took “2 Chainz” and several others into custody.
Tour bus arrests were as follows:
Rapper 2 Chainz – 35-year-old Tauhed Epps
31-year-old Cedric Brooks
