This past week, 2 Chainz was arrested, an assault was linked to his tour with Lil Wayne, and Lil Durk was attacked during a performance.
2 Chainz and Entourage Arrested Aboard Tour Bus
2 Chainz and several members of his entourage were arrested late last week in Oklahoma for obstructing a police officer. The crew didn’t go quietly either. They initially denied the officers access to the vehicle and engaged in a nine-hour standoff until police produced a search warrant. According to authorities, police initially pulled the bus over for having a missing tail light, but noticed drug use inside the bus once they opened the door. 2 Chainz has denied that there were any illegal narcotics on the bus and lamented his recent run-ins with the law on Twitter. “Our bus gets pulled [over once] a week and they always say, ‘I smell weed. I need to search [your] bus.’ S*** gets tiring,” he wrote.
Fan Assaulted by Entourage Member of Lil Wayne, T.I., 2 Chainz Tour
Things got even worse for 2 Chainz after the traffic stop. On Aug. 23, news broke that someone from his tour with T.I. and Lil Wayne assaulted a fan following the trio’s concert stop in OKC. According to TMZ, the victim was invited onto one of the buses, showed up with a friend and was groped by an unidentified entourage member. When she brushed off his advances, he punched her in the jaw and ran off. She was transported to the hospital and had to undergo surgery to repair her broken jaw. The injury was so severe that she had to have her jaw wired shut and follow a liquid diet for six weeks.
The police are currently investigating the incident. Thus far, only T.I’s team has responded to the allegations, denying any involvement.
Lil Durk Attacked During Live Performance
An audience member at Lil Durk’s concert in Columbus, Ohio attacked the Chicago rapper with a chair during his performance. The sold-out crowd began to get out of control while being egged on by the performer and others on stage to “Turn Up!” Online video of the mayhem shows people from the crowd throwing bottles and other items. One person who got too amped up picked up a bar stool and threw it at Durk, who didn’t react fast enough to avoid being hit. Things quickly escalated from there. According to reports, gunfire rang out inside the nightclub and the Coke Boys artist was quickly escorted off the stage by security, effectively ending the concert.
