Sunday’s arguably the slowest newsday so chances are if you have a roaring good time on Saturday night, get arrested and you’re guaranteed to make the rounds on Sunday since nothing else is happening. Just ask Big Boi. According to TMZ, the rapper was arrested in Miami on Sunday after he was found carrying ecstasy pills, MDMA powder and the always embarrassing Viagra. According to the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department, all charges are felonies.
Reportedly, Big was returning to the U.S. from a cruise when things went awry. Big’s lawyer Daniel Kane release a statement that “While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage” and his client’s good name will be cleared once all the facts are sorted. For his part, Big didn’t seem to be stressed about the situation, gauging by his Twitter status.
Contrary to what many may be thinking, using Viagra isn’t that unusual for pimps, players and hustlers in the South. Not that the drug is needed but who doesn’t enjoy an enhanced experience? And hell, Mike and Big referenced “blue diamonds” all the way back on 2003’s “A.D.I.D.A.S.” so Antwan ain’t new to this, he’s true to this. Still, I giggled after read a Facebook comment referring to him as “Daddy Flat Sacks.”
Don’t stress it, Big. Continue to keep your head up.
