After lighting up in front of New York cops after the city's marijuana laws were changed, 2 Chainz compared New York to California. “I remember being in New York, they had the Hip-Hop police they used to f__k with us out the cab and jump down,” 2 Chainz said. “Man, now we in Times Square walking with the gas man. New York, I’m glad you found some other s__t to be upset about and stopped f___king with n___as about none of that s__t like that.” He walked past an NYPD van, demonstrating his newfound freedom. He answered, "Nah, for real in front of 12." "They're not tripping, they're not tripping," says 2 Chainz. "F__ked me up, they've done turned to Cali in this b__ch." 2 Chainz isn't just a consumer. He's among the Hop-Hop artists entering the cannabis market. His Pineapple Express cannabis startup started in February in Los Angeles.
