California doesn't seem to be a hospitable place for 2 Chainz these days: The 35-year old rapper was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday for possession of marijuana and promethazine, Billboard reports, just days after being robbed at gunpoint of his wallet and phone in Oakland.

Tauheed Epps, better known as 2 Chainz, was arrested while at LAX after the police say they discovered weed and promethazine (which creates "sizzurp" when combined with codeine) in the rapper's checked luggage. 

It's not his first arrest: 2 Chainz was arrested for pot possession in Maryland in February after his van was stopped for speeding. The rapper was found not guilty in April due to uncertainty over who the weed belonged to.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
