Rapper Wiz Khalifa has reportedly been arrested for marijuana possession.
The rapper took to his Twitter.com page on Sunday (25May14) to share pictures of what appeared to be himself inside a jail cell, explaining that the release of his new mixtape, 28 Grams, had been delayed by his arrest on Saturday night (24May14).
In subsequent posts on the micro blogging site he writes, "I wanna drop 28 Grams but they got me locced (locked) up. Soon as I get out, the tapes comin (sic) out... They're tryna (trying to) figure out how many grams I had. How ironic... #FreeTrapWiz."
Website hotnewhiphop.com reports the rapper was stopped and arrested while travelling to the Neon Desert music festival in El Paso, Texas, where he was due to perform.
The hip-hop star's arrest had not been officially confirmed by law officials as Wenn went to press.
Khalifa was arrested in 2011 on drug trafficking charges after police found a stash of marijuana on his tour bus. The charges were later dismissed.
