50 Cent has handed some legal advice to his fellow rapper T.I. following his drugs possession arrest, calling on his wife to take the blame.

T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., and his wife, former Xscape singer Tameka Cottle, were taken into custody in West Hollywood on Wednesday after a sheriff's deputy allegedly smelled marijuana smoke coming from their vehicle during a traffic stop.

They were released in the early hours of Thursday morning, after posting $10,000 bail each.

The arrest could land Harris back in jail -- he was released from prison in December, after spending six months behind bars on gun charges, and is currently on probation.

And his pal 50 Cent has urged Cottle, known as Tiny, to take the rap for possession of drugs so that T.I. escapes sentencing.

On his page, the "In Da Club" hitmaker writes, "Man TI and tiny done got picked up agin (sic) for methamphetamines and ecstacy (sic) dam man (sic). Tiny gotta take that charge. Say it was yours Baby."
