Big Boi Accepts Plea Deal in Drug Case

It looks like Big Boi is in the clear. The Grammy-winning OutKast rapper accepted a plea deal Thursday to settle his drug case and avoid jail time.

According to the Associated Press, Big Boi appeared in a Miami courtroom Thursday (October 13) and accepted a plea deal from prosecutors that will give him three months of drug testing, community service and $2,000 in donations to charities.

As previously reported, the OutKast rapper was arrested while stepping off a cruise ship this past August after a K-9 dog sniffed out drugs –including ecstasy– that the rapper was carrying.

As long as BB can remain clean for three months, the charges will be dismissed. –Jakinder Singh
