Thankfully, early 2000s R&B boy band vocalist Lil' Fizz (AKA Dreux Pierre Frederic) is bringing some flair back to notable incarcerations with Little Amsterdam, his recently busted pot shop, which he set up in an area not zoned for dispensaries and seemingly without any papers.
Nice work keepin' it real, Lil' Fizz. Real wild. After the jump, check out Crossfade's five most outlandish rapper weed busts.
5. @Paul Wall: Busted!
Houston rapper Paul Wall wasn't really arrested for carrying a ridiculous amount of weed or setting up his own "pharmacy." But, immediately upon release the Texan MC tweeted a photo of himself and cohort Baby Bash handcuffed in the back of a cop car. And that's the kind of wild marijuana behavior that lives up to Crossfade's very high standards.
4. Wiz Khalifa's Public Affair With Mary Jane
The "Black And Yellow" rapper from Pittsburgh is always bragging about how much weed he smokes, appearing in magazines with blunt in hand and surrounded by Cumulonimbus clouds of reefer smoke. And you know what? That kind of wildly weedy boasting is such a heat up, it'll get you arrested.
3. Weezy F. Busted
In 2008, Lil Wayne got pinched by the DEA in Arizona for 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy and various drug paraphernalia. Just one of Birdman Junior's many arrests. Of course, it wasn't the bust that sent him to Riker's. But this particular incident impresses us for the wild variety (and quantity) of drugs involved.

And while the variety of Wayne's drug kit is noteworthy, we're supposed to be talking about weed-related behavior. Which brings us to Fabolous, who got into some shit when a bus search revealed 500 pounds of dope.
1. Mr. Biggs
Now, our number-one wildly weedy hip-hop arrest of all time ... Last October, Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Kareem "Biggs" Burke was arrested as part of a massive NYC sting operation. Finally, someone related to rap music who actually still deals drugs.
