The incident got considerable news coverage specifically because Wiz posted a picture online of himself in jail. While performing at the Sunset Festival, the Taylor Gang leader spoke about his Texas arrest and the jailhouse photo.
Wiz told the Minnesota crowd, “When y’all heard I was in that cell and y’all went on Twitter and y’all said, ‘Free Chuck/Wiz’… y’all better believe I snuck my cell phone in there for that s**t. I wasn’t going to miss out on the people who really care about me.”
