Nipsey Hussle

Cuffed During Trayvon Rally

Allegedly Packing Heat

7/17/2013 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops came down on rapper Nipsey Hussle in a big way Tuesday night in the middle of a Trayvon Martin protest rally  ... handcuffing him after suspecting he was brandishing a gun.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... LAPD cops saw Nipsey doing something that made them believe he was walking around with a firearm.  They descended on the rapper and cuffed him, but quickly determined he did NOT have a gun and they let him go.

It's unclear if Hussle was part of the rally, which took place in Leimert Park -- the scene of violence the night before.
