Hip-hop artist Antwan "Big Boi" Patton faces several drug charges after Miami police arrested him Sunday, according to booking information posted on the Miami-Dade jail website.

Patton was charged with illegal possession of Viagra and Ecstasy pills, MDMA powder and drug paraphernalia with intent to use, the website said. Bonds totalling $16,000 were set, the site said.

His lawyer, in a statement provided to CNN through his publicist, said Patton was re-entering the United States when the contraband was found.

"While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage," attorney Daniel Kane said. "I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated."-[CNN]

Big Boi has since retweeted that exact quote from his lawyer via CNN. He also since tweeted a new Cutty track he's featured on.

In related news, Rapper Killer Mike (who has appeared on records by Andre 3000 and Big Boi) recently was interviewed by CNN and spilled the beans on new Outkast (we'll believe it when we see it) and Goodie Mob LPs on the way. Not many details other than their possible eventual existence.

Big Boi is dumb. Everyone knows Miami police dogs are legit as fuck. Also, on cruises (especially Miami) they take all the bags out the night before and have them all checked by dogs. What a rookie.

Is this the full Goodie Mob line-up? "Still Standing" is still fresh.

Full Goodie Mob lineup. I believe the working title is "We Sell Drugs, Too". In March, they claimed to have 10 songs completed.
