Wiz Khalifa busted weed again
Wiz wasn’t arrested, but was cited and released with a court date set for July 27th. Members of his staff and band were also cited as well.
A couple of weekends ago, on April 21st (the day after 4/20 — a holiday for potheads), Wiz was cited for weed possession after police were called to his hotel room following a complaint from someone about a “strong odor” of marijuana.
Maybe it’s time for Wiz to slow down with all those doobies. We hear vaporizers produce less smell/smoke anyway!
The Winston-Salem Police Department in North Carolina tells us ... the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana before his concert in Winston-Salem last night.
We're told officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus.
Wiz was cited and released -- and is required to appear in court at a later date.
As we previously reported, Wiz was caught with weed in Nashville on April 21 ... after cops received complaints about marijuana smoke at a local Holiday Inn.
The rapper was busted with weed in his hotel on Saturday after his neighbors reported a strong marijuana odor lofting from his room.
When the cops busted in the door, they saw Wiz tossing his blunt out of the window. Even though Wiz THOUGHT he got rid of the evidence and told cops that was the only weed in the room, the authorities searched the room.
Surprise, surprise! There was more!
The 24-year-old and a friend confessed to possessing the illegal drug and are both scheduled to stop by the county courthouse anytime until May 14th to deal with the consequences.
Everyone makes mistakes. Unfortunately, Wiz's mistake was getting caught and we have a feeling that this arrest won't affect his, umm, habit.
Wiz Khalifa was busted for weed possession for the second time in the last 10 days yesterday (May 1), when Winston-Salem cops seized 11.39 grams from his tour bus after a concert. Might want to rethink that strategy, Wiz.
Guess who's not psyched about Kanye West's remix of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Chief Keef's "I Don't Like?" The song's original producer Young Chop, who has threatened to "sue the shit out of Kanye West," adding "that n---- is a hoe." Oof.
Looks like Brandy's using the media to get her man Ryan Press to cough up a ring. "I wish we were engaged. He's taking a little long on the ring side of things, but I'm patient," she told Ebony. [SingersRoom]
