In a felony complaint issued by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, 2 Chainz will be charged with possession of a controlled substance for unlawfully caring codeine—one of the main ingredients used to make sizzurp—nearly one year ago.

The arrest took place 10 months ago, after TSA agents at LAX found the codeine in his checked bag. The rapper also allegedly had promethazine (another ingredient in sizzurp) and marijuana on his person at the time. It is unclear whether additional charges will be made.

A month after the TSA incident, 2 Chainz was arrested for drug possession again, this time while on tour in Oklahoma. "Don't ask me ask OKC police department what they found on the bus," he tweeted. "U won't get an answer because nuthn was found."

According to the complaint, the rapper faces up to three years in prison. His bail is set at $10,000. 

2 Chainz scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, April 8.
