Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested in Oklahoma yesterday after a standoff with police officers who pulled over the MC's tour bus around late Wednesday after they noticed its taillights were out, TMZ reports.

The authorities said they saw signs of drug use when they approached the bus and attempted to board, but the driver locked them out and told them they had to get a warrant first.

After a nine-hour standoff, police towed the bus to a police training center, where they presented a search warrant, Billboard reports. The police arrested 11 passengers, including 2 Chainz, and took them to the Oklahoma County Jail for "interfering with police process."

No word yet regarding whether the suspects will face additional charges, or if police did in fact find drugs on the bus.

Just a few months ago 2 Chainz ran into trouble with the law in Los Angeles, where he was arrested for posession of marijuana and promethazine (just two days after being robbed at gunpoint, no less). Earlier this year, he beat a marijuana posession charge in Maryland because of confusion over who the weed belonged to.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
