Rapper T.I. has cancelled a highly-anticipated gig in Pennsylvania following his arrest earlier this month.
The 29 year old and his wife, former Xscape singer Tameka Cottle, were taken into custody in West Hollywood after a sheriff’s deputy allegedly smelled cannabis smoke coming from their vehicle during a traffic stop.

Drugs were reportedly found in the vehicle.

The hip-hop star, real name Clifford Harris Jr., is now under investigation as he is still currently on probation following a six-month jail spell on illegal weapons possession charges.

And the star’s latest legal issues have prompted him to scrap a concert at the Bryce Jordan Center on 24 September.

The venue’s marketing director Bernie Punt explains, “T.I.’s management was very disappointed, and we are doing everything we can to reschedule the concert.”
