Yesterday, 2 Chainz was arrested in New York when he was on his way to North Carolina for a performance. Because of his status in the rap game, the entire hip hop world was covering 2 Chainz’ legal situation. It came as a shock when it was revealed the Atlanta rapper had brass knuckles with him.
As more reports on the story were released, it seemed as if 2 Chainz’ four-finger ring was mistaken for brass knuckles. 2 Chainz, as shown in his name, wears a lot of jewelry to promote his persona. Upon being released from jail, 2 Chainz opened up on his arrest.
Over the phone, 2 Chainz spoke with MTV News about his arrest. He said even after his situation was explained, the law enforcement made no effort to correct themselves. 2 Chainz called the situation “swag assassination.”
