Following a controversial week for Tekashi 6ix9ine, in which he was threatened by gangsters in a number of cities, he had a video shoot in New York City shut down by police on Tuesday (Feb. 27).

According to TMZ, the rapper was shoot a video for his single “BILLY” in Brooklyn, but several hundred people shoted up.

Apparently, his team didn’t get a permit for production, so the shoot was shut down.

TMZ says NYPD had safety concerns following the numerous gang threats 6ix9ine had received, so they took him to the station… and he was later released to his associates.

He was not arrested.

Last week, 6ix9ine dropped his debut project Day69, which immediately shot to No. 1 on iTunes, thanks to all the publicity he had received in the days prior.
