At least a dozen shots were fired and one man was killed in Brooklyn yesterday on the set for the video shoot of ‘Touch It (remix)’ by Busta Rhymes. Busta, 50 Cent, DMX, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot and Lloyd Banks were all on set at the time. While filming the video a little after midnight, the crew asked for quiet from the extras and members of the various entourages. That’s when a man some claim was wearing a G-Unit jacket yelled back,
“Who the fuck are you to tell me to be quiet? I’m on parole, motherfucker! You don’t tell me to shut up.”
Moments later, as people left the set, Busta’s bodyguard, 29 year old Israel Ramirez, got into an argument and shots were fired. When order was restored, police found Ramirez dead. A dozen shell casings and three bullets were found around the veteran bodyguard. Police later found a .45-caliber silver handgun with a black handle that had been tossed over a fence onto a construction site next-door.
I’m a fearless hunk, but this is why I stopped being a strapping bodyguard for famous rap stars. The violence got to be too much. Now I just bodyguard Jessica Simpson, and the only screams are sexxxy screams of passion, and the only injuries are because her anus is still real tight.
