2 Chainz brass knuckles?  Claims it is a 4-finger ring.Rapper 2 Chainz wasn't packing brass knuckles when he was arrested today in New York ... it was just a harmless 4-finger ring -- this according to sources close to the hip hop star.

The ring says "DOPE" in big letters -- and sources tell TMZ, 2 Chainz rocked it no problem at an Atlanta club called the Velvet Room on Sunday.

According to sources close to the rapper, Chainz then flew to NYC without incident -- with the ring in his luggage -- but when he tried to leave the city today, TSA at LaGuardia Airport mistook the jewelry for a dangerous weapon.

TMZ broke the story ... 2 Chainz was arrested at the airport for possession of a criminal weapon this afternoon when officials found the 4-finger instrument in his bag.

2 Chainz is still in custody. The Port Authority PD had no comment.

Kanye, 2 Chainz, do the right thing now and stand up for Americans. Use your Ashkenazi-given fame to tell
the country & the media that the American government has gone WAYYY TOO FAR in all these
made-up laws for our own 'security'. We have to register now to exercise freedoms of speech, assembly, and expression. Our right to bear arms has already been trampled and this is your chance to show that Kanye, and 2 Chainz you CARE ABOUT BLACK AND ALL AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THEIR UNALIENABLE RIGHTS WHICH OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT AND DIED FOR. Down with the Bilderbergs, Down with the illuminati, & down with the world's so-called 'elite'. Your time is up!!! -XIV

I can't see how he ever plays the piano with that on. I would say that the cello becomes quite difficult as well.

I guess if he ever forgets who he is, or anybody needs to i.d. him, they can just check the ring..."DOPE"

He'd rather wear a stupid looking piece of bling than be able to use his fingers? How vain and stupid can you get?

Calling it a 4finger ring doesn't mean it's not the same damn thing as brass knuckles.

Oh, this isn't switch-blade, it's a letter opener.
