After Eastern Shore marijuana arrest, rapper 2 Chainz found not guilty

The Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz, who received a drug citation during a traffic stop in Talbot County in February, was found not guilty.

The rapper, whose legal name is Tauheed Epps, was found not guilty of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges, online court records show. His attorney did not respond Thursday for a call for comment.

Epps tweeted on Wednesday, “Boxing gloves I beat the trial.”

After the February stop, he Tweeted a photo of himself with two officers, prompting state police to review the incident. No information about that inquiry was available Thursday.

Troopers had stopped a white Ford van for going 79 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone on Route 50 and smelled an odor of burnt marijuana. The troopers searched the van and found a backpack containing a grinder with trace amounts of marijuana, police said at the time.
