Wiz Khalifa speaks out about Texas arrest at Soundset Festival 2014
Wiz Khalifa opened up about his drug arrest while onstage at the Soundset Festival in Minnesota just hours after he was released from police custody.
Wiz Khalifa spent time in a West Texas jail early on Sunday after being arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession during an airport search.
The rapper was on his way to the Soundset Festival in Minnesota when he was detained, and he continued his journey to the music event after he was released on $300 bail.
During his set at the festival on Sunday night, Wiz Khalifa spoke about his arrest and thanked fans for supporting him via Twitter while he was behind bars.
Wiz Khalifa told the crowd: “I’m gonna ride for y’all. The same way y’all ride for me. Same way when y’all heard I was in that cell and y’all went on Twitter and y’all said, <<Free… Wiz>>… y’all better believe I snuck my cell phone in there for that s**t. I wasn’t going to miss out on the people who really care about me, who really want to see me do well and push me to the top. That’s what y’all gotta do for each other, keep that s**t going on.”
