    MIAMI – Grammy-winning OutKast rapper Big Boi has reached a deal on Florida drug charges that allows him to avoid jail time.

    Big Boi appeared in a Miami courtroom Thursday as prosecutors outlined the deal that includes three months of drug testing, community service and $2,000 in donations to charities. The 36-year-old rapper’s real name is Antwan Patton.

    He was arrested getting off a cruise ship in August when a K-9 dog alerted to drugs Big Boi was carrying. The substances included ecstasy, a cigarette roller with marijuana residue and the ecstasy ingredient MDMA.

    Big Boi had faced two felony drug charges. Prosecutors say if he remains drug-free after three months of testing, those charges will be dismissed.

    The Atlanta-based group OutKast has won six Grammys and made six platinum-plus albums, including “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.”
