Tekashi69: NYPD Crashes His Video Shoot
According to TMZ, Tekashi69 has had run-ins with the police for two weeks in a row—this time, the NYPD came to shut down his music video shoot. 6ix9ine was attempting to shoot his music video in Brooklyn on Tuesday; he had his crew in attendance, plus several hundred people in the streets of the Crown Heights neighborhood. And of course, it wouldn’t be a 6ix9ine event without running into some sort of issues. Law enforcement sources says that the rapper failed to get a valid permit for the production. That wasn’t the only reason as to why his video shoot was shut down. NYPD stopped by the location for a couple of reasons—the first being the large crowd. When he promoted the shoot on social media, word got out and the public surrounded the area. Cops on the scene warned Tekashi that it was a dangerous situation because some of the responses were violent threats. Since the fight last week at LAX, the threats have been rolling in and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. Even if the Brooklyn crowd was team 6ix9ine, the production would have still gotten shut down due to lack of permit. The situation has gotten so out of hand that the police took him to the station—not to place him under arrest, but for his safety—and his people met him there.
