2 Chainz Arrested at New York Airport…

2 Chainz was arrested in the Delta terminal at LaGuardia airport in Queens, New York this afternoon. Cops say he was charged with misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon and taken into custody after the TSA found brass knuckles in his bag. Big Sean says that the alleged brass knuckles were actually a four-finger ring, and a rep tells TMZ that the rapper’s team is “handling the situation.”

Update: 2 Chainz wore a four-finger ring, seen here, last Sunday at an afterparty for Drake’s Club Paradise tour appearance in Atlanta. He remains in police custody. (via The Fader…)

The 25-year-old Atlanta rapper is the couldn’t-be-more-perfect face of our first-ever Loud Issue, dedicated to all things enjoyably and compellingly disruptive. Not just because of his blaring dreadlocks or booming sonics or growled hooks, but — as writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd discovers during a whirlwind international adventure — he’s a character at a moment when that quality seems at a premium. And while he’s on the cusp of megastardom, flying to Paris at a moment’s notice when Kanye beckons, he’s held in check by two personal tragedies, even if you couldn’t tell from his fun-loving, club-destroying image. “I’m 25, but I got an old man’s soul,” he says. “I just know how to camouflage it.” (Read More at Spin…)
