BALTIMORE, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Rapper 2 Chainz tweeted a photo of himself with Maryland state troopers after he was arrested on drug charges en route to perform a show.

The hip-hop artist was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia after a Thursday traffic stop on his way to perform at a homecoming event at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, The Baltimore Sun reported.

He was issued a citation and released from police custody.

"Locked me up then wanted pictures," the rapper wrote along with the photo he posted on Twitter.

Gregory Shipley, a spokesman for the state police, told the newspaper the unorthodox photo shoot is under review.
