Tekashi 6ix9ine Caught Panicking On Tape After Music Video Shooting
The rapper was overheard panicking over being identified at the video shoot with Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.
New footage from the shooting at Tekashi 6ix9ine's music video with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj has surfaced. The footage, which was acquired by TMZ, reveals what exactly went down on that night in Nov. 2018.
According to audio of cops on the tape, rounds from a rifle and 9mm gun were discovered at the scene of the Beverley Hills mansion where Tekashi and friends were supposed to shoot their music video. Police confirmed that the criminals shot directly into a gate located at the back of the house and over the residence. They believe someone was shooting from the alleyway.
Further along in the video, a cop tells someone that he would like to identify everyone who was at the scene during the shooting. The camera then pans to Tekashi 6ix9ine, who is currently on probation and facing numerous criminal charges. The Brooklyn native is overheard panicking about having to be identified. "ID me? I can't," he says. "I'm on probation.... Tell [the cops] I'm not here."
As previously reported, Tekashi was supposed to shoot a video at a mansion in the Hills with Minaj and West when the incident occurred. At least 10 shots were reportedly fired during the shoot. Kanye immediately left the scene following the shooting; Nicki had not yet arrived.
Tekashi's visible panic most likely stems from his recent probation sentence in regards to his 2015 child sex case. The rapper reportedly avoided jail time and was handed a sentence of four years probation for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a 13-year-old girl. Being identified at the scene of a new crime could have negated his probation and sent him to prison.
The video shooting didn't end up hurting his chances, but Tekashi is still facing prison time for other charges. He is currently awaiting trial for his racketeering case and could face life behind bars.
