CNN) — Allow us to take a moment to recognize Wiz Khalifa as the new king of #selfies.
According to TMZ, the rapper — who has a well-documented penchant for toking — was arrested early Sunday morning at a Texas airport after a “green leafy substance” was found during a security check.
But it looked like Wiz, who was born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, wasn’t too stressed about the situation as he tweeted a pic of himself in jail with the caption “Jail selfie.”

He also tweeted a picture of the barred jail door saying “Free Trap Wiz.” That cry was quickly picked up by fans on social media who turned it into a hashtag, naturally.
