Meek Mill was arrested before his own album launch party this week.

The Philadelphia MC, who is signed to Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group label, tweeted a picture of himself being held by police on the evening of the party celebrating the release of his debut album 'Dreams & Nightmares'.

"Cops cost me a lot of money tonight .....taking pics of me like I'm a fuckin joke....no charges just holding," he wrote on Twitter, posting a picture of himself in what appears to be a Police station. "I ain't get locked up...definitely not in NYC with no gun! Cops just harassed and violated me last night in Philly just for being famous!"

According to MTV, Philiadelphia Police spokeswoman Julian Russell. "He was stopped in a vehicle but was not arrested. He was only detained in a substation. In normal cases, we do not give out this kind of information, so I can't release anything further."

According to another tweet posted yesterday, the rapper was furious at having to take his Rolex off for the handcuffs: "The crazy part about it is I really had a handcuff and Rolex on my wrist yesterday.... Really #DreamsAndNightmares," he wrote referencing the title of his LP.
