An arrest warrant for Wiz Khalifa has been issued after the rapper failed to appear in court in El Paso, Texas on Wednesday (06Aug14).

The Black & Yellow hitmaker was arrested in the city in May (14) after police at El Paso Airport caught him trying to sneak marijuana onto a plane.

He hit the headlines from behind bars when he posted a jailhouse 'selfie', which triggered an investigation.
