Rapper allegedly threw spliff out of hotel window

Wiz Khalifa was busted for marijuana possession over the weekend, according to reports.

The rapper – real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz – was visited by police at his room in the Holiday Inn in Nashville on Saturday (April 21) following reports from other guests of a strong odour of the substance, TMZ.com claims.

When officers arrived at the scene, the hip-hop star allegedly threw his spliff out of the window. The “marijuana cigarette” was later recovered and Thomaz was served with a citation rather than being arrested after admitting possession.

The rapper has been open and vocal about his marijuana use in the past – and his debut album is titled ‘Rolling Papers’. “It’s not just about the weed thing. It’s bigger than that. My career really took off when I started smoking papers,” he said when announcing details of the album last year.

This isn’t the only legal problem he’s faced this year – in January, Thomaz was served with a $2.3 million lawsuit by Maxamillion, who claimed that his hit single ‘Black And Yellow’ stole elements from his song ‘Pink N Yellow’.
