Nicki Minaj didn’t arrive early to the set, thankfully.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s seen a lot of success over the past few months alone. The rapper was shooting a music video in L.A. yesterday, alongside Kanye West and Nicki Minaj — two artists who’ve collaborated with him in the past. Unfortunately, shots rang out in the middle of the video shoot. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but the shooter ended up putting a bullet through Nicki Minaj’s dressing room window.
According to TMZ, Nicki Minaj’s dressing room was struck by a bullet during Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music video shoot. Sources near production said that one bullet hit a window on Thursday night of the master bedroom. The bedroom was meant for Nicki Minaj and her crew to hang out in during the video shoot.
However, what’s strange about this is that 6ix9ine was originally supposed to be in that room but allowed Nicki to have it on the day of. If the shooter had any sort of inside information, it seems like they would be trying to target 6ix9ine. While Nicki wasn’t there at that point, Kanye West was on set. But, he left immediately after the shots were fired.
The music video shoot was put to a halt at the $80M estate immediately after the shooting. A person on set said 8 shots went off during the shoot. Once the shots were fired, security ran towards it and saw someone hop over a fence. They managed to shoot a few scenes for the music video although cameras were off when the shots went off. The set is now a crime scene, so needless to say, production has been paused.
