Twenty-three-year-old PITTSBURGH-based rapper, WIZ KHALIFA, was released from a NORTH CAROLINA jail this morning following his arrest for drug possession MONDAY evening during a show on the campus of EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY.
KHALIFA appeared this morning in District Court in GREENVILLE, N.C. seeking to have his $300,000 bond reduced and to pay bail money for members of his entourage who were also arrested. The arrest followed a raid made by campus police on his tour bus in the middle of a show where they found approximately two ounces of marijuana. Before the raid, KHALIFA was heard saying he liked to get high before performing. He claimed it was “not abnormal” for him to spend $10,000 a month on marijuana.
KHLAIFA has been on tour since mid-SEPTEMBER. His current single, “Black And Yellow” is climbing both the Urban and Pop charts.
