Gunfire Disrupts Music Video Shoot Featuring Kanye, Tekashi 6ix9ine, Nicki Minaj

Production on a  music video featuring Kanye West, Tekashi 6ix9ine, and Nicki Minaj was halted Thursday evening due to gunfire.

West, 41, and Tekashi, 22, were on location in an exclusive Beverly Hills neighborhood when gunshots rang out around 10:30 p.m.,  the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed to The Blast.

Tekashi — real name Daniel Hernandez — had rented out an $80 million home for the shoot. Sources close to the production told TMZ Friday that a bullet pierced a window in the property’s master bedroom, where Minaj and her team were scheduled to stay before filming.

The initial plan was for Tekashi to stay in the master bedroom, but one day prior to filming, he gave the Super Bass performer his spot.

Rapper 50 Cent, who was not on set or involved with the music video, shared a photo of the crime scene to Instagram.

“Now somebody done shot my son video up in LA,” he captioned a photo of a shattered window.

Although eight shots were fired during the incident, no one inside the home — including West and Tekashi — reported any injuries.

West took to Twitter Friday morning to thank fans for their support, but it’s possible his message was related to the Woolsey Fire in Southern California. West and his family were forced to evacuate their Hidden Hills area home as the wildfire burned through 35,000 acres Friday.

“Thank you for everyone’s prayers,” he wrote. “Our family is safe and close.”

As for the FeFe performer, he seemingly addressed the situation via an Instagram video of his security team.

“Know my security hates me… I don’t blame them,” he captioned the clip. “YOU CANT TOUCH ME. Ur mad.”

At this time, authorities haven’t identified a suspect in the shooting.
