Long before gunshots rang out on Tekashi69’s music video set, his crew turned the Bev Hills mansion into a reflection of his technicolor hair … and TMZ got the first pics inside. Let’s keep it real, the $ 80 million estate looks like someone puked…
It would be a massive understatement to say it’s been a frightening 24 hours for the members of the Kardashian-West clan.
As we reported this morning, wildfires forced Kim Kardashian to flee her home last night, and it now looks as though her husband experienced his own brush with death.
Radar Online is reporting that Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Tekashi69 were all forced to flee the set of a music video they were filming together when an unidentified assailant opened fire.
“I can confirm that at 10:25 pm Beverly Hills Police were called to the 900 block of Alpine Drive in Beverly Hills over reports that shots were fired,” a spokesman for the Beverly Hills Police Department tells Radar.
“Once on the scene, officers confirmed that multiple shots were, indeed, fired at a building or residence at the 900 Block of Alpine Drive.
“At this time it is believed to be a drive-by. No one was injured, and the investigation is ongoing.”
The shooting took place at what TMZ calls one of the most “exclusive, expensive streets” in Beverly Hills, and Tekashi’s team had rented out a multimillion-dollar mansion for his video.
So it’s a safe bet that the assailants were targeting the rapper specifically.
Sure, everyone who was there last night has been involved in high-profile feuds:
After all, it wasn’t all that long ago that Cardi B threw a shoe at Nicki Minaj.
And who could forget Kanye’s feud with Taylor Swift?
We bring these beefs up only to point out how unlikely it is that this attack wasn’t orchestrated by Cardi and Taylor.
No, police say it’s clear that Tekashi was the target here, and unfortunately, his list of enemies is so long that it hasn’t been easy to narrow down the suspects.
The good news is, no one was injured in the frightening attack.
“Thank you for everyone’s prayers. Our family is safe and close,” Kanye tweeted today.
The bad news is, gunplay is still an unfortunate party of hip-hop culture, and Tekashi’s would-be assassins are still out there.

Cardi B was Little Mix’s backup option for their song because Nicki Minaj took her damn sweet time and had them panicking … TMZ has learned. Here’s the rub. Sources connected to the all-girl group tell us they had indeed reached out to…

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are feuding. It's intense, but at least nobody's throwing shoes anymore.
Cardi claims that she passed over working with artists like Little Mix, and that Nicki is essentially getting her leftovers.
Nicki's stans believe Nicki, Cardi's stans believe Cardi, and most people are just enjoying watching the two fight.
After Cardi ranted and raved and invited Nicki to physically fight, Nicki had a counter-proposal.
Nicki said that Cardi doesn't write her own lyrics … and "offered" for them to both take lie detector tests to prove it.
Naturally, as soon as someone mentioned that, The Maury Show had to weigh in.
Twitter is losing their minds over this whole beef. Take a look.
1. Nicki calls for peace
2. Did someone say "lie detector?"
3. Maury got some replies
4. Someone is betting on Cardi
5. Team Cardi spoke out
6. Some Cardi fans think Nicki is envious
If Cardi B and Nicki Minaj really want THE TRUTH, one man is prepared to give them THE TRUTH … and his name is Maury Povich. Maury stepped squarely into the middle of hip-hop’s biggest feud with an offer to hook both rappers up to a polygraph…
DING! DING! DING!
It is once again on between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.
Back in September, of course, the rapper threw down at a New York City Fashion Week party, with one side allegedly hurling a shoe at the other.
Fast forward about six weeks and Nicki went on record as saying that her close friend, Rah Ali, "beat Cardi's ass real bad" in a separate confrontation.
“The punches were so hard in your head," Minaj said to Cardi during her radio show on Monday, adding:
"Rah beat you so bad that I was mad at Rah. She punched her eight, nine times. Now you got your sister calling me a crackhead."
In response to this allegation?
Well, Cardi B said it didn't happen. And then she said a whole lot more.
"You lie so much you can’t keep up with your f-ckin’ lies,” Cardi said in a lengthy Instagram rant a few hours later.
“First you say you’ve got the footage, but then you say you wanna pay somebody $ 100,000 if they give you the footage? Yo, make sense when you’re talking!"
(On her radio show, Minaj had offered this amount of money for surveillance footage to prove Rah's beatdown of Cardi.)
At one point in the hilarious rant featured here, Cardi threatened to sue her rival because Minaj had previously claimed Cardi's team paid radio stations to play her music, a practice known as "payola."
Says Cardi in this video reply:
"Maybe I should sue you for defamation of character since you wanna claim that I’m using something called payola, because you don’t understand why I’m so f-ckin’ successful.”
Cardi concluded her response by telling Minaj to “pick a side” and “make sense” because she previously portrayed victim… and now she’s asking to pay for footage she claimed she already had.
"How you say that I was a wild animal, that I attacked you that you was mortified that you was humiliated playing the victim but now y'all the gangster," she said.
"Pick a side. Do you wanna be the victim or do you wanna be the gangster? You lie so much you can't even keep up with your f-cking lies.
It's all somewhat confusing, but very entertaining.
Especially as the back-and-forth continued for hours on social media. To wit:
"I’m tired of talking about [this]," Cardi said on Twitter at last, adding of the ongoing feud and its coverage:
“I’m tired of the f-cking whole internet shit, I’m tired of the interview sh-t. If you really wanna talk about it, you know where to link me. … We can talk about it, or we can fight it out.
"I’m with whatever.”
Check out the video here to see Cardi B sounding far less resigned about the whole thing, though.
