2 Chainz Sentenced to Drug Diversion Program
By Shannon Carlin
It’s unclear if the Feds were actually watching 2 Chainz, but the TSA agents at Los Angeles Airport were clearly on the lookout.
The rapper was arrested last June after airport officials found ingredients for sizzurp–a cough syrup-based drink–in his checked bag. Yesterday (May 5), 2 Chainz (real name Tauheed Epps) pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor possession of the controlled substance.
According to the District attorney’s spokeswoman (via Billboard), the rapper was sentenced to an 18-month drug diversion program, an alternative to serving jail time.
