It’s starting to sound like there might be some bad blood between Linkin Park and Sublime. Rome Ramirez, the current singer of the punk band has accused Linkin Park of calling the cops on the band while they were smoking marijuana.
The bands recently shared the stage at KFMA DAY in Tucson, AZ, but according to Ramirez, the band called the cops on them because they were “allergic to weed” and that the police came and confiscated the weed while Sublime were on stage, though no arrest had been made.
Ramirez went on to dub Linkin Park by a new name, Linkin Nark. It’s would not be so surprising if this did occur because LP frontman, Chester Bennington has had a long history with drug addiction, but Mike Shinoda has now come out to defend the band.
Like Ramirez, Shinoda took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the matter claiming that his band were not the ones who called the cops on Sublime. He also goes on to give an alibi for the band saying that they were in the middle of a meet and greet when cops were called; nowhere near where the alleged smoking was going on.
LP didn't "call the cops" on @RomeMusica smoking pot. Not sure where the rumor came from. Definitely not my style, bummer it happened.
Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested last night for Marijuana possession the van he was in was pulled over. the rapper and his entourage were on their was to a school when the vehicle they were in was caught going 79 in a 50 miles-per-hour zone. When the Maryland State Police pulled over the vehicle, there was an odor of weed and with probable cause, were able to search the vehicle. Inside, they found a backpack that had a grinder, a device used to grind marijuana so that it could be smoked, with remnants of weed in it.
The only person in the group to be arrested was 2Chainz and lets just say that he wasn’t too happy to be in that position. After being booked and released, the rapper went onto his Twitter to inform fans about what had just happened and what he thought about the incident. The interesting part about the story was the photo that was taken with two of the police officers(seen above). When the Maryland State Police was asked about who initiated the photo, 2Chainz or one of their officers, the spokesperson simply said: “We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time.”
