Wiz Khalifa Arrested for Felony Drug Charges, Freed on $300K Bail

Wiz Khalifa was reportedly arrested on a series of felony marijuana charges this morning (November 9) during a stop in Greenville, N.C. last night as part of his Waken Baken tour.

According to MTV News, the 2010 XXL Freshman was brought in around 1:30 a.m. and charged with marijuana trafficking, maintaining a place for sale or storage of marijuana and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Shortly after 8 a.m. Wiz was released on $300,000 bail. As of press time nine people in his entourage are still being held on the same charges.

The Pittsburgh, PA MC took to his Twitter account this morning to comment on the incident. “[W]aken…baken…wrist still achin,” he wrote, before adding, “Man, jail sux!”

It is uncertain if the Atlantic Records signee will be making his way to Winston Salem Entertainment Sports Complex on Wednesday for his next tour stop as scheduled.

    ATTENTION RAPPERS!!!!! LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FACT AND FICTION!!!!

    Being “Real” doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be stupid. Everyone knows Wiz loves weed. He speaks about it all the time in his rhymes.

    The problem?

    Feds are listening too. The vast majority of people know about “hip-hop police”.

    So why flaunt? If you know you’re “gettin’ it” why do you need to speak about it.

    WARNING!!!! I’M ABOUT TO DROP SOME REAL SH*T….

    Wiz got caught for the same reason many of us Black men get caught. Running our mouths. How can I get mad at White People for pointing out the obvious about our culture?

    We’d rather look good and lose than to look normal and win. Seems like a hell of a stereotype.

    But think about it…. How many stupid rims do you see on shitty cars (and dudes have jacked up credit and no sense of responsibility)?

    How many football games do you see some idiot celebrating in the end zone after getting a touch down (meanwhile his team is 3 touchdowns behind)?

    FLASHES FROM THE HEADLINES REAFFIRM MY OPINION:

    T.I. locked up for doing dumb shit. Twice!!!

    Joe Budden just dropped an album but can’t feed his child.

    Lil’ Wayne does a bid and gets celebrated for his release from lock up like it was an unfair conviction (and even gets props from past President Bill Clinton)!!!

    PEOPLE. DON’T TAKE THIS STUFF AS SELF HATE. AND I KNOW THE SAME COULD BE SAID ABOUT OTHER CULTURES. BUT CORRECTION OF A PROBLEM OFTEN BEGINS WITH CLEANING YOUR OWN BACKYARD. AND AS A BLACK MAN I HAVE TO OWN UP TO WHAT WE ARE DOING TO OURSELVES AS A COMMUNITY.

    Hip Hop is probably the only music where a cop can sit and listen and determine IN ADVANCE what infractions to try to arrest the artist on.

    I am anti-racial profiling. But rappers seem like that profile on themselves. Real shit.

      Real talk no doubt, but whatever happened to free speech? As long as what I say doesn’t impede on the rights of others it’s fair game. So what if I say I smoke weed everyday, that doesn’t give the cops one reason to start an investigation up. I mean you def got a point about “looking good and losing vs. looking normal and winning” but shit’s getting out of hand (Especially with these stupid laws against an nonaddictive, non-lethal all natural substance)

      • ant

        actually, admitting to committing crimes does give police a reason to investigate. regardless of how you feel about the laws, admitting to crimes is stupid.

    • Beebodydriver

      I respect this and it makes clear sense. When I saw the article-I said this was definitely going to happen!

    • Capital G

      Damn Sha, be easy with spreading all that truth around. The powers that be will fuck around and start moderating your comments.

    • sowait

      You are right about everything you are saying. But it isn’t just that he sings about weed in every single song he makes. He is a weed head and even was dumb enough to claim he spends $10K a month on weed. Once you put that kind of info out there you are gonna get knocked. Judging from the bail he posted he probably does walking around with that much herb. If you are gonna make that kind of info public you gotta be smarter and not have that ish on you.

      @ Sha well said my brethren! Nonetheless, as a man who was born in Liberia/Africa which the named was derived from that vicious Roman General Scipio Africanus, still to no avail, my fellow country men/women yet call themselves Africans sorrows me deeply. It is a blessing that for years I study my ancestors which are the Chippewa Indians, Grebo tribe flowing from the seeds of Ishmael.

      With dialectic speech following Romanic and Germanic teachings in everyday activities and teachings from daycare, elementary to high school and onto college, hue-man “people of color” beings have been digesting well dress lies that has crippled their internal souls.

      Various young man and woman are falling drastically for their rejection of knowledge which overtime the children of Satan have gain wisdom and “their so called for understanding” to destroy our culture and freedom. This country has been and will always be built off of the carbon, plasma and blood of the innocence’s until we “The Children of the Most High” decides to relinquish the blasphemy from our surroundings. Scores of these talented and musically incline organisms has accepted the teachings of the world instead of teaching the world which now their lives are heavily scrutinized for their lack of self worth and appreciation for their own lives. Much to say but have to be quite careful due to our freedom of speech has been eradicated.

      Until we decide that we have the power to refine our surrounding from the dwellings of Satan and his children’s much is lost for the fool. “To all my brothers and sisters, please research, research, research and research who you are and where you come from my fellow true Hebrew Israelite. Beware of the Edomites, they come in all shapes and colors and this was way before the Willie Lynch Era. May our sovereign God bless all of you and your families, families’ family’s. Bless!

      @OG_912…..

      That racial name calling is unnecessary.

      So ok…. I’ll take the bait….

      First, Brother, YOU LIVE IN A SOCIETY. As a member of a productive society, you have an obligation to obey the rules and regulations. Sure, you don’t HAVE to. But if you want all of the perks and benefits that come along with being a member of a society, you will have to work with the system a little.

      Now there’s always other options. You don’t have to do what “The Man” says. But if you’re unhappy in ANY society,you only have three choices.

      1. CONFORM
      2. AFFECT THE SYSTEM THROUGH TIME COMMITTED CHANGE
      3. OR GET THE FUCK OUT

      That plain. That simple.

      We live in the age of Passports. Don’t like this society? BOUNCE. Let’s see what kind of treatment you get overseas. Take it from someone that travels there regularly, The United States has it’s problems, but compared to those other countries? This joint is like heaven.

      And ok. I see your point about money. But let me ask you a question….

      DID YOU VOTE?

      I don’t pretend to know the answer to that one but judging from your 1960′s mentality it’s a safe bet you sat on your ass. Dudes like you annoy the shit out of me because you only see the world through some warped “White Man is Hurting Me” view, when the bigger enemy is yourself and your inability to man-up and take responsibility for yourself.

      I refuse to let my proud Brown Face to be painted in “White Wash” by people like you all because I am stating the truth. I love my Black People. And sometimes a kick in the ass is exactly what we need to get shit done.

      Try and succeed. Try and fail. But damn dude…. JUST TRY. Stop with that fake ass mentality. Because in the end, your kids and your culture will only continue that cycle of bullshit by learning the dumb shit you show them. REALLY, REAL!!!!

    *understand its

  • WonderJenks

    This nigga spend like 10 g’s on weed a month, so he bound to get bagged lol. Am i the only one who is surprised it took this long.

  • Q461

    Honestly from what I read Wiz will be ok. If you break it down it was only a couple of ounces, and they charged it to him and 9 other niggaz he was with. Plus he didnt have baggies or a scale or nothin.He wasn’t tryin to sell nothin..he was just on tour so they had more bud than they would if he was home or local to his hood. I bet he gets a misdemeanor, probation and shit. Now Biggs on the other hand…..hes fucked. Any updates on the situation with dude???

    Taylor Gang nigga!
