Wiz Khalifa was kinda asking for this one by naming his tour Waken Baken, taking it through the South, launching his own brand of rolling papers and bragging in a recent interview he has a $10,000-a-month weed habit. C'mon man, that's just lofting one over the plate for campus security.
This is a lesson never learned by rappers and musicians. You can't take your tour van or even a rental van with visible band gear through the South without enduring the frustration of an unlawful search of your vehicle. Every story I hear from band friends that involves possession charges always begins with “we were in [insert a former Confederate state]…”
Here's the video of Wiz getting hand-cuffed:
Did I hear a chick yell, “do a cannonball”?
Despite Wiz's eccentric weed expenses, he scrounged up enough loot to make the $300,000 bail. He was arrested on charges of “trafficking,” which always deserves quotations as it is highly doubtful Wiz was caught doing hand to hands, but merely possessed a substantial amount that allots the police the privilege of assuming he's a trafficker. Naturally, this has propelled Wiz to the statuesque position of weed-martyr. As if dude wasn't already becoming super-famous, he's now the most trending topic on the internet. Tweets of “#FreeWiz” are rampant, even though he's out of jail, his homies are out of jail and they are all at a Denny's somewhere slamming down Grand Slam breakfasts.
