The New York Daily News reports that two women and three men were taken in to custody by the NYPD. One of those people was the set security guard. Weapons and drugs charges are being levied against the group of five, with illegal guns being found on site as well as marijuana, cocaine and MDMA.
The video was being filmed as a tribute to recently deceased rapper Chinx, who was shot in a drive-by in Queens in May. Following his shooting, Jay Z gave him an on-stage shout out and urged members of the black community to stop shooting each other, citing gun violence as the reason many in the community are “under attack like never before.”
