I have never seen a so-call style of music have so many people either dead, in jail or on there way to jail. This isnt music a criminal lifestyle.

Paperboy is safer in jail, at least Amy Sedaris cannot stalk and gaybash him there.

If he would have been white, the cop would have given him his citation and sent him on his way. Because he was black, the cop likely felt that was reasonble suspicion to search the car. Happens everyday. So does this mean it is illegal to have ANY prescription in your car unless the person it was prescribed to is in the vehicle.

Possession and transportation?! LMFAO what's the world coming to? It's not like he was carring crack or got a DUI. Weed is medically legal throughout the state... dude needs to get a medical cannabis card and cops need to quit tripping over a little bit of weed.

And the prescription thing-- didn't know you could get arrested over that... although maybe the cops just wanted to get high off some free kush!

yes white boy, that is exactly what it means. it is not legal to have prescribed drugs in your posession unless they are yours. and driving on a suspended license is automatic jail time regardless of your skin color. and when you go to jail, it is procedure for the cops to search you and your vehicle.

Yeah the charges do seem pretty severe....I agree with the other comment, if he was white, the cop wouldn't of searched his car. Just another good example of a waste of taxpayer's money..!

Of course half the people who read TMZ don't know who Paperboy is. Kids today and their soulja boys and their walk it outs.

You people are so stupid. A suspended license is a state charge and if you drive on a suspended license, you go to jail immediately! AND if you go to jail, the cops have to search you AND your car. The guy broke the freaking law now matter how you look at it. I can't believe you idiots are condoning this crap BECAUSE he is black. Man....talk about reverse racism. Or maybe just plain stupidity on your part!
