2 Chainz Hit with Codeine Charge

2 Chainz was arrested three times in 2013 for pot.

Ten months after being arrested for pot and Promethazine at LAX, 2 Chainz (nee Tauheed Epps) has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.

Last June 11, TSA found the drugs (including an ounce of marijuana) in his check-on luggage.

Promethazine, an ingredient often found in cough syrup, is a sedative that contains codeine. When mixed with soda or other sweet beverages, it's called purple drank or sizzurp.

Two days earlier, 2 Chainz was reportedly robbed at gunpoint outside The Green Door dispensary at 843 Howard St. in San Francisco. The assailants took his wallet and cell phone. He later tweeted: "We definitely got geeked up in San Fran, best smoke in the world."

The rapper was arrested three times for marijuana possession in 2013: 1) Easton, MD on Feb. 14; 2) Los Angeles, CA on June 11; and 3) Oklahoma City, OK on Aug. 22.
