2 Chainz Released From Jail, Explains Arrest


2 Chainz is a free man following his arrest at New York City’s LaGuardia airport. Officials alerted the police after mistaking his four-finger ring pendant for a deadly weapon. However, upon further inspection at NYPD headquarters 2 Chainz was released.

The rapper didn’t clarify if he is still facing charges but recounted the ordeal with MTV News.

“They tried to assassinate my character, they tried to assassinate my swag,” 2 Chainz told MTV News in an exclusive telephone interview. “It was just a negative dilemma earlier where someone misconstrued a piece of jewelry for a weapon and stuff.”
