There were a lot of excited fans at the weekend as they prepared to see their favourite star Wiz Khalifa performing at the Soundset Festival in Minnesota on Sunday. However, this excitement then turned to concern, when it was announced that Wiz Khalifa had been arrested on suspicion of possession of Marijuana and taken to a prison cell.
A lot of fans hit out in protest of the arrest and these protests obviously sat well with Wiz Khalifa, who did finally make it to the Soundset Festival to perform his gig for his loyal fans. Wiz managed to get bail for the price of $300 and made it to the gig, where he opened up to his fans about his arrest during his performance.
Khalifa explained, "I'm gonna ride (be there) for y'all. The same way y'all ride for me. Same way when y'all heard I was in that cell and y'all went on Twitter and y'all said, 'Free... Wiz'... y'all better believe I snuck my cell phone in there for that s**t. I wasn't going to miss out on the people who really care about me, who really want to see me do well and push me to the top. That's what y'all gotta do for each other, keep that s**t going on (sic)"
When Wiz Khalifa did finally make it to the stage, the Soundset Festival crowd went wild and the singer managed to put on a very impressive show for his fans. The short time spent in the Texas jail clearly did nothing to affect his performance and Wiz gave it his all.
