The 40-year-old rapper has returned to the studio and is heavily involved in working on new music, according to his close friend, 2 Chainz, who was previously known as Tity Boi.

Speaking on DJ Drama's 'Streetz Is Watchin' show on Shade 45, 2 Chainz said: ''He's actually producing again, like him, not just giving out directions, which he started doing for awhile. You'll be hearing some new Tity Boi and Kanye real soon.''

Sweetlife Festival 2014 logo

Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.

We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.

The rapper was busted at LAX by TSA officials last June after the sizzurp ingredient was allegedly found in one of his bags at check-in. At the time of his arrest, it was reported that possession of marijuana and promethazine was the cause of his arrest, the latter another ingredient in sizzurp, but it is currently unclear whether or not more charges will be added to the codeine possession.

2 Chainz Robbed? Shots Fired In Armed Robbery


2 Chainz

Neither 2 Chainz's rap-boy swagger or his crew couldn't save him from armed thieves in an altercation outside a medicinal marijuana dispensary that left him robbed and defenceless, according to Complex.

Fuse writer Jason Newman reported that police have confirmed the 35 year-old rapper was indeed robbed of his valuables: "Just got off phone with SFPD. 2 Chainz specifically robbed of "wallet, credit cards, U.S. currency and cell phone." Suspect still on run", later tweeting, "Single suspect carrying handgun. Suspect fired 1 shot. Nobody struck. 2 Chainz fell to ground. Suspect approached that man and robbed him."

It is still unknown whether reports Chainz, after recently being found not guilty for marijuana possession, was visiting the dispensary to purchase weed cookies is founded in truth.

A Lucky Escape? 2 Chainz Found Not Guilty On Marijuana Possession


2 Chainz Nas Kanye West

2 Chainz has managed to walk away from his marijuana possession charge an innocent man, thanks to a lack of evidence that the offending items actually belonged to him. The Guardian reports that 2 Chainz claimed one of his bodyguards had packed the rucksack, therefore the drugs were not necessarily his. The bodyguard, Harold Folsome Jr, said that he had just packed the bag with items found around the hotel, thus absolving himself of prove ownership, too. “whoever left t in the room, I guess that’s who it belonged to,” [sic]said Folsome.

2 Chainz was arrested for the offence back in February when Maryland state police pulled him over in a routine stop and smelled burning marijuana coming from the vehicle. Talbot county court judge William H Adkins said “It belonged to somebody in that room," the judge agreed. "As for who, I don't know.” As the ownership of the offending items was not proven, no charges were brought against the rapper or his bodyguard. The arrest, however, has already caused significant disruption to 2 Chainz music career, as well as for some of his fellow hip-hop stars as Nas was forced to cancel his Live Nation Movement festival, citing 2 Chainz’ “visa issues resulting from a pending unresolved court case” as a reason.

The rapper released his major label debut Based On A TRU Story last August. It debuted at number one in the US. He has now begun recording in Paris with Kanye West for a new LP.
