Rapper Twista recently found himself in some hot water, having been arrested last month for the possession of half of an ounce of weed.

After pleading not guilty in court on Monday, Twista’s attorney Lakeisha Murdaugh says she  feels as though Twista was profiled because of the type of car he was in, which was a Rolls Royce.

Murdaugh believed that cops knew that Twista was in the vehicle, and that the traffic stop wasn’t “random” as authorities say it was. Murdaugh wants a review of all police transmissions and scans from that night to see what exactly it was about the vehicle that prompted the cops to pull it over as a part of a traffic stop.
