EASTON, Md. —

Rapper 2 Chainz has been acquitted of drug charges he faced after a traffic stop on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

The Star Democrat of Easton, Md., reports (http://bit.ly/11TIU4F ) that a county judge found the rapper not guilty Wednesday. 2 Chainz's real name is Tauheed Epps.

The Atlanta-based rapper was headed to a college homecoming event in February when state troopers stopped the van he was traveling in. Police said they searched the van after smelling burnt marijuana and found a marijuana grinder and marijuana inside a backpack.

2 Chainz was cited for having drug paraphernalia and marijuana after he claimed the bag. The rapper's security guard testified that in a rush to leave the group's Baltimore hotel room, he packed the grinder, but he said he didn't know who owned it.
