A Georgia rapper and DJ were arrested during a traffic stop early Sunday, authorities say, hours after they had been scheduled to perform in Arkansas.

Sergio Kitchens, 24, and Taurus Currie, 21, both face several drug charges, according to a report from the Jonesboro Police Department.

The pair were traveling in a gray Ford Expedition around 4 a.m. Sunday when the SUV pulled up next to an officer who was parked at the northeast corner of Airport Road and Nettleton Avenue to ask for directions, according to a report from the city's Police Department.

The officer noted there was a "strong" marijuana order coming from the vehicle as it pulled away and initiated a traffic stop.

According to police, marijuana, amphetamines, ecstasy, oxycodone pills and half a "Xanax bar" were found in the SUV.

Kitchens, a rapper who performs under the stage name Gunna, and Currie, a DJ, were scheduled to perform Saturday night at The Diamond Grill at 305 Airport Road in Jonesboro. Their appearance at the venue was canceled, according to a promoter for the show.

The pair were arrested and later released from Craighead County jail after they each posted a $2,500 bond. They are both set to appear in court July 27.

Black guys? I'm shocked they are still alive. The police officer must have not been on his 'roids that day.

When the officer asked for his license, Gunna said, "it's on the back, dog!"

Simple solution, don't break the law and you won't go to jail.
