Wiz Khalifa didn’t let a simple arrest get in the way of his performance duties.

The rapper, who was arrested early Sunday morning at an airport in Texas after security officials found him with a “green leafy substance,” did make it to Soundset 2014 in Minneapolis later in the day. Not only did he kill in concert, he did an entertaining interview with Urban Daily (in which he admits the photo on his “28 Grams” album cover looks like his mug shot). The web site posted footage from the show and his comments.

According to the Associated Press, a statement from El Paso police says because Khalifa traveled without identification, a search was ordered, and Transportation Security Administration agents found a canister with marijuana.

TSA alerted police, who arrested Khalifa. He was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.
