On Tuesday night, 50 Cent and Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music video set in Brooklyn didn’t go quite as planned. TMZ reported that, while the two rappers were filming, a white Porsche with plates from New Jersey shot around 11 rounds in their direction.
According to TMZ, the bullets belonged to a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon, but thankfully, no one was hurt. Uncle Murda and Casanova were also on the set.
An insider close to the rapper says that, surprisingly, they weren’t aiming at Tekashi directly. However, law enforcement says this is merely a rumor, and they haven’t confirmed if there’s merit to the claim.
The authorities are taking a look at the surveillance footage, but currently, they don’t have anyone in custody. As you may know, this isn’t the first time Tekashi, or 50 Cent, have found themselves in trouble.
Last month, a group of men grabbed 6ix9ine and threw him into a vehicle where they held him at gunpoint. They robbed him of his belongings and he managed to escape by jumping out of the car.
After running to a bystander for help, they took him to the hospital where medical professionals treated him for injuries. However, TMZ claims that the rapper didn’t want to cooperate with the police – not a surprising fact, considering 6ix9ine supposedly has gang connections.
Previously, Tekashi got into trouble with the law after he assaulted a fan at one of his concerts. The rapper put a young fan into a stranglehold and then didn’t appear for the court arraignment.
According to the up and coming artist, he was facing “only” misdemeanor charges, so he thought he wouldn’t have to go to court. As for 50 Cent, the rapper came to prominence in the early 2000’s along with the legacy of being shot nine times. His rough start led to a thriving career; 50 Cent released his first album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, in 2003, and went on to sell approximately 30 million records.
