Weezy’s just been freed, but Wiz was thrown in the dock on Monday. “Black and Yellow” MC Wiz Khalifa is no longer roamin’ free. Khalifa was arrested on Monday night in Greenville, North Carolina, after alleged wafts of marijuana smoke were detected. Authorities say they were able to detect the marijuana smoke from Khalifa’s tour bus.

Khalifa was arrested after a performance at East Carolina University, where he was paid $10,000 for a standing-room-only performance. He was stopped on his way out by campus police. They stopped him because they smelt a strong odor of marijuana radiating both from backstage and Khalifas’ tour bus. Khalifa is very open about his marijuana use, and so cooperated with the officers in their search of his tour bus. Nine members of his entourage were also arrested along with the alleged seizure of more than 60 grams of marijuana.

The 22 year old rapper, born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, was booked into jail at around 1:30 a.m. at the Pitt County Detention Center. His bail was posted $300,000 which he subsequently paid, resulting in his release at around 11 a.m. PST. His felony counts include marijuana trafficking, maintaining a place for sale/storage of marijuana, and a misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Khalifa, who has his own brand of rolling papers, and spends about $10,000 a month on weed, is likely to agree to counts of possession of marijuana for personal use. This would cut the usual 12 months time, and utilize a plea deal. Ironically enough, Khalifa was appearing on the Carolina campus as part of his Waken Baken Tour 2010.

Khalifa utilizes Ustream in which he’s generally using or surrounded by his drug of choice along with twitter, where he tweeted the release of his crew. His numerous fans have been active in online forums discussing his arrest along with his chart-climbing song, “Black and Yellow’.”

Weezy, Wiz Khalifa, all in a long line of musicians being locked up for various reasons, leaving us to wonder…who’s next?
