Los Angeles — Prosecutors have charged Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz with felony drug possession after his arrest last year at Los Angeles International Airport.

The 36-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday on a felony charge of codeine possession.

The rapper was arrested in June after airport officials reported finding ingredients for the cough syrup-based concoction known as "sizzurp" in his checked baggage.

Publicist Sarah Cunningham said the rapper had no comment.

The Atlanta-area native is best known for his hits Birthday Song, I'm Different and Feds Watching, as well as collaborations with some of rap's biggest names, including Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.

The case was first reported by celebrity web site TMZ.com.
