The rapper has been booked on felony narcotics possession, according to TMZ, after cops stopped him from boarding a plane at LAX.
While 2 Chainz didn't address the arrest directly, his Tuesday night tweets seemed to address the day's reports. "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see," he posted. "Life gone have its ups and downs, as long as u in the middle u good. So we good y'al."
The rap star, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, went public about his love of pot on Monday in an effort to play down reports he was involved in a shooting incident in San Francisco on Sunday.

Local police reports suggested 2 Chainz and his entourage were the victims of a street robbery, but the rapper insisted cops had their facts all wrong and tweeted that he and his pals simply got high smoking marijuana before his performance at the Oakland Summer Jam concert.
He wrote, "Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post (photos of) items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc. Rule #2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies. Rule #3 we definitely got geeked up (high) in San Fran, best smoke in the world. 2 blessed 2 stress."
His latest run in with cops isn't the rapper's first drug bust this year. He was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession in Maryland in February, but found not guilty two months later.
