NOT Brass Knuckles!!!

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Well, dope is the right word for him, as in dumbass. And no matter how much he spent for all that gold hanging off him, he still looks like a cheap street pimp.

am I the ONLY one that read this part:

"Chainz then flew to NYC without incident"

Boy, people really can't read on this site. And normally TSA doesn't arrest people for stuff like this. It's only because he's a rapper.

When they found a letter opener in my bag they just confiscated it and I kept it moving. (and yes, I'm black).

D.A. - read it again. It says he wore the ring in a Atlanta nightclub, and then boarded a plane for NY, with no incident. It wasn't till he was leaving NY that he got busted, while trying to fly out of NY. Haha, at least that's what I got out of it...

He should have been arrested for that lame ass Mr. T starter set and ridiculous vest he was sporting! And, something tells me he's still in the pokey for different reasons.
