Rapper 2 Chainz will return to Oklahoma City in November as part of singer Rihanna's concert tour, three months after his high-profile arrest.

Rihanna's "Diamonds World Tour" will stop at Chesapeake Energy Arena on November 12. The singer announced Monday that rapper 2 Chainz would be her special guest, along with GTA.

The last time 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was in Oklahoma City in August, he and 10 members of his entourage were arrested. An officer stopped their tour bus for a broken taillight, and then detected the odor of marijuana coming from the bus.

Everyone on board refused to get off and locked themselves inside. That led to a nine-hour standoff with police. Officers eventually arrested all 11 people on the bus for obstruction. They bonded out of jail the same day.

Epps later called the experience "frustrating," and apologized to his Oklahoma City fans.
