He tips the cops off via his tweet that he has great weed I sure hope hes not surprised he got arrested for it. Since the government gets all our phone calls, emails tweets etc you would think people would start to get smart about what they put out there. And informing the police via tweet you have drugs is not the brightest thing to do

Marijuana is still illegal, moron.
So many "rappers " show how dumb they are by ignoring the law.
Hard to believe how stupid they really are.

Wow just reading TMZ the last week it sure hasn't been a banner week for the African American community. With Obama being outed for the dirty liar that he is, Chad Johnson, Kanye West and now this ass hat.. maybe they will realize that going through life dumb and stupid isn't really the way to live your life. But of course they wont.. Please enter hateful comments to this post below where I wont read them.
