Legendary rapper Kurtis Blow was busted at LAX this morning after a TSA body scanner detected an item in his pocket -- a stash of weed, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the body scan detected "an anomaly' in his pants.

Yes, we thought that was funny as well.

A subsequent pat down revealed pot in his pocket.

Kurtis received a ticket -- standard operating procedure when it's under an ounce -- and went on his merry way.

These are the breaks.

Next time Mr. Blow, try the pat down.
