Harold “Strap” Duncan, one-third of the rowdy rap trio Travis Porter, perceives his recent arrest at an Atlanta airport for gun possession as a small bump in the road.

 

In an exclusive interview with BET.com, Strap assured fans that the group was back on track despite his legal trouble.

 

“We had a lil setback this week, but I’m up in New York we doing this interview,” Strap told BET.com as he sat between group members Donquez "Quez" Woods and Lakeem "Ali" Mattox.  We got a show at Yale tonight so you know we back on the road, minor setback.”

 

As previously reported, Strap was detained at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for carrying a loaded .45 caliber glock handgun in his luggage. According to MTV, the 21-year-old rapper was taken into custody by airport police and detained at a Clayton County jail in Jonesboro, Georgia.

 

Upon posting bail, Strap joined Quez and Ali in New York where the hip hop trio is promoting their oft-delayed, still-untitled debut album. Fans have been patiently waiting for a proper release from the group since they scored a breakout hit in 2010 with the strip-club anthem, “Make It Rain.”
