Hip Hop NC-Raleigh North Carolina- Coming to North Carolina has been a struggle for Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa. The Pittsburgh native got busted by North Carolina police May 1, 2012 on a marijuana possession citation.
The following is via: TMZ
Wiz Khalifa — who famously raps about rolling joints “bigger than King Kong’s fingers” — was busted for weed AGAIN last night … the 2nd time in 10 days. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina tells us … the rapper was ticketed for possession of marijuana after his concert in Winston-Salem last night. We’re told officers discovered 11.39 grams of pot after searching the rapper and his tour bus. Wiz was cited and released — and is required to appear in court at a later date. (TMZ)
Just last week, Khalifa made headlines over a weed bust in Tennessee.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Metro Nashville Police responded to Wiz’s room on April 21 after someone complained about a strong odor of marijuana. When officers arrived to the scene, Wiz — real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz — allegedly tossed a “marijuana cigarette” out of the window. Cops say they recovered the item … saying, “inside the rolling paper was a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana.” According to the report, Wiz eventually admitted the joint was his and said he had 3.7 grams of weed in his pocket. Wiz — who’s VERY open about his marijuana use — was hit with a citation … and probably smoked more weed after the officers left. (TMZ)
A court date has been set for July 27th.
