Yesterday afternoon, news broke about 2 Chainz being arrested after TSA officials confused his personal jewelry for a set of brass knuckles. Big Sean tweeted on the situation as Chainz was still being detained by the police before being released later that night.

If the story both Sean and 2 Chainz stand by actually sticks, it’s utterly ridiculous that this mix up even took place. Never (okay, probably) in the history of illegal weapons has anybody ever had a customized pair of “HOOD” brass knuckles. During the phone conversation with MTV News, 2 Necklaces specifies how his trip to jail turned into a weird experience, as well as copping out to a lesser charge in order to make his show in Raleigh, NC.

“I do exclusive pieces. My pieces are actual conversation pieces, like, literally,” said the “Riot” rapper of the four-fing, seen here, that got him arrested. “When you see my gold, when you see my stuff, it’s something to conversate about. People weren’t doing four-finger rings and all that. I just like to set myself apart, so I definitely wasn’t trying to beat nobody up on the airplane or nothing.”
