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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
