Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci caused a panic while on the set of his music video when he accidentally fired a gun. As he filmed his latest visual against a green screen, the rapper was handed a semi-automatic weapon to use as a prop. However, the gun was loaded with bullets without the rapper realizing it until he pulled the trigger.
A video clip obtained by TMZ shows a female crew member seeming to inform Lucci not to fire the weapon. But the rapper did anyway, sending the three other people around him scrambling and searching for cover. Meanwhile, YFN Lucci acted surprised following the shooting and seemingly leaving a hole in the studio floor.
Later on, Lucci acknowledges the crew member who told him not to fire the weapon. Moreover, it doesn’t seem like anyone was hurt judging from the video clip.
On the other hand, it’s still unclear where the music video was being shot. However, TMZ equally notes there are strict rules about prop weapons in the entertainment industry, and YFN Lucci could possibly face a penalty.
After the video went public, Young Thug seemed to have his say. “Put that gun down, son,” tweeted the rapper, with many taking his tweet as a response to Lucci since the two have had issues.
Put that gun down son..💀
