Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco ran into some issues with authorities at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) yesterday (November 17).
While details are emerging, the outspoken artist took to his Twitter account to vent about the incident.
“WOW…Fresh outta handcuffs @ LAX,” Lupe tweeted before a show in Rhode Island last night.
According to sources close to Lupe, the issue was a piece of technical equipment that the rapper was not allowed to bring on the plane.
Lupe, who was not charged and was eventually freed, said he was the victim of over zealous TSA agents.
“Airport PD officer was just doing way too much,” Lupe tweeted. “Even OD’d on TSA…let the arrest get before the CHARGES. We good tho…#TimeForPrivateJets.”
Lupe left the incident in relatively good spirits and even shouted out other police officers.
“Shout to all the good airport cops and TSA folks…don’t let the bad apples spoil the bunch!!” Lupe said.
Despite his brief detention, Lupe Fiasco made it to his show last night at the Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island.
