Update: As it turns out, marijuana wasn't the big problem. Law enforcement sources have told TMZ that 2 Chainz was arrested for felony narcotics possession. The rapper had Promethazine, a main ingredient of sizzurp. Pot was found as well, but 2 Chainz had less than an ounce on him.

T Chainz, who was born with the name Tauheed Epps, was in San Francisco over the weekend for Hot 97's Summer Jam concert. While in the Bay Area, he was reportedly robbed at gunpoint. The rapper later denied the mugging, and police say it was because he wanted to handle the situation himself.

While in San Fran, Chainz tweeted, "we definitely got geeked up in San Fran , best smoke in the world. 2 blessed 2 stress." It sounds like he may have brought some of that great weed back to LA with him. He is scheduled to do a radio appearance in Atlanta June 15. His next concert on the B.O.A.T.S. tour is June 21 in Greensboro, N.C.
