Rapper 2 Chainz was pulled over two weeks ago but has something to say about the police who pulled him over.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the rapper said he's being targeted while on tour.

"I'm not happy about it," the Atlanta MC told the magazine last weekend while hanging out backstage at Philadelphia's Made in America festival. "I don't want to go to jail."

2 Chainz, aka Tauheed Epps, and 10 other men were arrested for obstruction on August 22 after an officer said he smelled and saw marijuana smoke.

After 2 Chainz was released from the Oklahoma County Jail he tweeted, "Don't ask me ask OKC police department what they found on the bus. You won't get an answer because nothing was found."

On Tuesday, the results from the search warrant were released which said guns and evidence of drug use was found on the bus.

During his interview with Rolling Stone though, he said he's confident he can beat the charges against him.

"It's something that, essentially, a public defender could beat," he says. "I could actually take myself to trial for a lot of this sh**."

He also said he doesn't want the charges to be drawn out against him and he says he has a good reason why: he wants to save people money.

"I don't want to waste the taxpayers' money on this. Because, guess what? I pay a f****** lot of taxes!"
