The Smokin' Grooves tour may have to make some changes to its lineup after the Roots lead singer, Black Thought, a.k.a. Tareek Trotter, didn't show up to two performances last weekend. While the tour stopped at Jones Beach, N.Y., and Camden, N.J., Trotter was dealing with prison guards. It seems that Trotter was arrested not long before the Saturday performance at Jones Beach Amphitheatre on charges of gun possession.
Trotter is out on bail and should continue with the tour pending results of a hearing toady.
