36 year old rapper Antwan Patton aka Big Boi from the famous group OutKast is the latest to have his mug shot appear on the net for possession of an assortment of drugs. According to police reports, the rapper and his entourage was traveling back to Miami from a cruise abroad when passengers smelled what appeared to be marijuana coming from the vicinity of the rapper’s room.

 The ship’s crew was alerted and when the ship docked at the Port of Miami, drug sniffing dogs along with the police were waiting on them. The search turned up several narcotics which included Ecstasy, MDMA, Viagra pills and drug paraphernalia. Big Boi was then placed under arrest and charged with three felony counts of drug possession. He was later freed on a $16,000.00 bond.

“While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage,” the rapper’s attorney Daniel Kane said in a statement. “I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.”

Apparently some rappers who engage in drug usage have shifted from using couch medicine or syrup as it is called to crushing Viagra in their weed.

The rapper’s arrest comes just a week after the death of UK recording artist Amy Winehouse. Let’s hope that this is not a pattern coming out of this new generation of hip hop artists.

Patton lives in Atlanta with his wife, Sherlita Patton, their daughter Jordan, son Cross, and another son named Bamboo by another woman.
