Tekashi69 realized being at the wrong place at the wrong time could cost him his freedom, but it was too little too late. The Brooklyn rapper sounded in a panic shortly after shots were fired at his music video shoot in Beverly Hills back in November since cops wanted to check ID’s.
TMZ’s obtained footage taken moments after 2 gunmen opened fire on the Beverly Hills mansion last November where Tekashi and Kanye West were set to film a music video. It’s hard to see, but pay close attention to what you hear — Tekashi desperately wanting to leave … fearing his mere presence at the scene would put his then-newfound freedom in serious jeopardy.
You hear cops explain they found a 9mm and rifle rounds in the alley. They also explain how the house was intentionally targeted before saying they need to ID everyone. That’s when you hear Tekashi — sitting inside an SUV — say, “ID me? I can’t … I’m on probation … tell [the cops] I’m not here.”
Tekashi’s handler is also heard assuring Tekashi, word will NOT get out he was there. Remember … the shooting went down just 2 weeks AFTER the rapper caught a huge break, when he was sentenced to 4 years probation in his child sex case.
Part of Tekashi’s deal including avoiding any gang activity.
About a week and a half later, Tekashi got picked up by the feds on racketeering charges, and he’s been in jail ever since. Listen to the post-shooting audio below.
