A music video tribute for slain rapper Chinx turned into a drug and weapons bust when police arrested five from the set in Brooklyn, the New York Daily News reports. 

French Montana, Busta Rhymes, Ja Rule, Juelz Santana, and NBA guard Lance Stephenson were all on location at the time.

Three men and two women, including a security guard working the shoot, were popped after plainclothes officers stormed the shoot in East New York in the early evening, Friday (May 29), responding to calls from neighbors who said that they spotted drugs and guns.


Besides the illegal firearms, cocaine, marijuana and molly were also found, officials say.

Coke Boy Records founder Montana posted a number of pics from the shoot to his Instagram account over the weekend, but with no mention of the arrests. The video is meant to be an homage to Chinx, who was found dead of homicide in Queens, New York on May 17. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music
