Rapper 2 Chainz has been locked up! No lie. The Atlanta native was arrested on Tuesday (May 22) at LaGuardia Airport in New York for having brass knuckles in his carry-on bag. WTF?

According to TMZ, airport security discovered the metal weapon and called police to the scene. 2 Chainz was then handcuffed and charged with a misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon.

Apparently, 2 Chainz is still in custody. Meanwhile, the rapper's spokesperson told TMZ that his team is "handling the situation."

No word on how 2 Chainz's arrest will affect his participation on Drake's all-star Club Paradise tour. The 'Spend It' rapper is expected to perform Tuesday night (May 22) in North Carolina. By all accounts, he should make the gig.

We will keep you posted on any new developments...
