Big Boi Released From Prison, Denies Association With the ‘Love Boat’

Big Boi.

Big Boi, who was arrested this weekend in Miami for possession of ecstasy pills, MDMA powder, and Viagra, was released yesterday on $16,000 bail. His lawyer released a statement defending the rapper: "While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage. I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.” Also, Big tweeted a sort of cryptic explanation of his own: "Shiiiiit they said it was the Love Boat." It's unclear whether Big was referring to the Rafael Palmeiro juice, or to the fact that he was on a cruise ship before being arrested, or both. Regardless, that is totally the best way to handle allegedly being caught with Viagra. [Idolator]
