-- 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.

let's see, he acts human, realizes police just doing their job, and smiles for a picture with him. You can tell he was actting like a mature adult while in custody as he did not have cuff's on, and don't anyway say cops just took them off him, he never would have been cuffed with all those gold bracelets on. Then when he gets out, he has his inner-city n**ga, image to uphold so out comes the held back in 8th grade 3 times twitters. Simple, he was mr bad@ss gangsta rapper, he could have "just say no" to the pic request. Geez I crack myself up.

The headline was misleading... He's a rapper not a musician! Musician play instruments rappers talk **** about where they came from... & how" da man is holdin' dem down... " hopefully eventually all this crap rap auto tune BS will pass and we will get back to some De La Soul or Tribe called quest.. Those cats could represent!

those of us parents who are paying to send our kids to college know 2chainz by his real streetname "Po Ro Mo Dell". UMES needs to think twice about who plays at the school. Alot of folks who go there arent into gansta ghetto. those who are arent interested in school.

the local news has also been very hush hush about the injuries to homecoming attendees last night. i live near umes and there is a whole city style drug cartel operating in the background at the school. student loan checks and crack mix well. none of the administration will ever take responsiblity for what takes place on and around their property. Princess Anne is otherwise a nice town.
