-- OK, This is getting RIDICULOUS ...

We asked the Maryland State Police WHO ASKED to take the photo ... and a rep for the cops told us, "We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time."

Ummm ... how hard would it be to ask the cops???

Interesting Point -- 2 Chainz posted the pic on HIS Twitter page ... meaning it was most likely taken by someone in 2 Chainz's camp ... which would mean the rapper probably initiated the shoot.

Oooooor ... the cops took the pic and sent it to 2 Chainz.

Something's fishy here ...

2 Chainz was arrested for marijuana possession in Maryland last night ... and the rapper is PISSED -- claiming cops were just "f*ckin" with him ... and then asked him for pictures. 

The guy behind the hits "Spend It" and "I'm Different" was busted around 10 PM in Easton last night after Maryland State Police pulled over a white van he was traveling in ... along with 6 other people.

But cops say 2 Chainz was in possession of weed -- so he was arrested. He was the only person in the van taken into custody.

2 Chainz was taken to a nearby station where he was booked, released and even took a picture with police ... but the rapper says he only took the shot because THE COPS asked him for it.

After the incident, 2 Chainz went on a Twitter rampage -- saying, "dam police f*ckn wit a n**ga."

He continued, "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh (shakin' my head)."

2 Chainz also claimed that he didn't exactly have a bag of weed on him at the time ... only a grinder (a device used to crush up weed so you can smoke it.)

We reached out to cops -- so far, no word back.

TMZ - You're stupid. They didn't say they can't answer that at this time because the didn't know... it's their way of saying they don't comment on internal investigations. Duh. I don't know what the big deal is. Who the hell is that guy? Is he famous for something? I've never heard or seen of him.

2 Chainz is still one of the worse rappers alive! His music is catchy, not meant to be taken seriously. Just like Soulja Boy's. People who enjoys hip hop would not approve.

Last word for me - guessing it's his pic, he takes pics of his journey through life and posts them all the time. Prolly just a momento pic of an eff'ed up Valentines day run-in with the law on the way to his gig, to be shared with his twitter fans! Who knows who asked who, but once it was agreed the cops prolly took their own pics too, he got his, he's out of there and on to his concert!

First of all, I don't care who asked. The cops are on duty. It is not their personal time. And guess what 2chainz....grinders are paraphenalia. It's illegal too, just like weed. There is nothing stupider than a black person who will use the N word, degrading the suffering of their ancestors by making their painful word a common phrase.

Give us a break. You must have been high thinking you could cry foul and then ask the cops for pics to post on twitter and then cry ole poor " " being treated racially by two smiling cops. 2 Chainz full of s*^) If you were so pissed you shouldn't have asked for picture.

You guys are so stupid... Who is the F.u.@.k wants to take a picture with the cops after being humiliated after going to jail. You can look at the picture to see who wanted the picture by the smiles on their faces. I swear y'all will believe any damn thing.

How you gonna post the pic on Twitter then complain cops messing with you??? Cops beating the ish outta you is cops messing with you. Cops wanting to take a pic means your lawyer will be able to sweep this charge under the rug. Another rapper acting hard after the fact
