Sweetlife 2014 lives up to its name with amazing sets from Fitz & the Tantrums and Foster The People.

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 arrested at LAX for unlawfully carrying codeine.

2 Chainz has been charged with felony drug possession ten months after he was arrested at California's LAX airport for unlawfully carrying codeine, the main ingredient in the cough syrup-based mixture sizzurp, which is punishable by up to three years in prison, according to TMZ.


2 Chainz Has Been Charged With Felony Drug Possession.

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.

Despite what the title may imply, Drake's new track required assistance from rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean.

It's all rather hip hop and happening in the rap world right now as lyric-spitting titans can't wait to share new tracks with fans in 2013. We've had Kanye West's Yeezus, Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being II to name a minority but now we're sitting pretty waiting for Drake's upcoming September album and third studio effort, Nothing Was The Same.

To keep us going until 17th September, Drake has dropped new single 'All Me' but, as you'll hear on the track, it wasn't all him. Drake called in buddies and fellow rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean to embellish his latest song with some stirring accompaniment.

Atlantan rapper 2 Chainz has been robbed at gunpoint after his 14-strong entourage "fled like cockroaches running from a flashlight", police say.

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.
