“Black & Yellow” rapper Wiz Khalifa was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Nashville on Saturday after investigators were called to his hotel room at the Holiday Inn on West End Avenue at about 8 p.m.
Wiz Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, 24, was in Nashville to perform at Vanderbilt University’s Rites of Spring concert, where he was the headliner.
Police said the front desk staff at the hotel called police and reported that they’d received several complaints about marijuana use in room 725, where the rapper was staying. The front desk staff told investigators that they’d been up to the room and told the rapper and another man, Lonnie Howard, 27, about the complaints, police said.
Once officers arrived and went up to the seventh floor of the hotel, they smelled marijuana, knocked on the door to the room and when the door was opened, they saw the rapper throw a marijuana blunt out the window, police said.
When asked if there was any more marijuana in the room, both Thomaz and Howard said there wasn’t, but police later found more marijuana on Howard, police said.
Both suspects later admitted to having the marijuana and were cited for the misdemeanor possession, police said.
They have until May 14 to show up at the Davidson County courthouse for booking on the charges.
According to Thomaz’s Twitter account, he left Nashville on Sunday and has been in New York this week.
