Busta Rhymes Bodyguard Killed Outside Video Shoot
Israel Ramirez, a bodyguard for rapper Busta Rhymes, was shot and killed outside a New York video shoot.
A bodyguard for rapper Busta Rhymes was shot dead outside a New York warehouse where the star was filming a music video early on Sunday, police said. Local newspapers said fellow recording artists Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott were among those at the packed warehouse in the borough of Brooklyn where the video was being filmed.
Some time before the shooting, police sources said, there had been an argument over noise in the studio and producers had asked several people to leave. Shortly after midnight, several shots were fired outside the studio, killing 29-year-old Israel Ramirez. The father of three from Brooklyn was in charge of guarding jewelry for the rapper whose real name is Trevor Smith.
Nobody else was hurt in the shooting which sent dozens of people fleeing from the scene before police arrived.
A shame. The rap business is a very strange and dangerous world.
