A group of rappers were recording a video dressed as bank robbers Sunday when police arrived, thinking there was a real robbery going on.
Rap artist Tru Keezy and his musical partner decided to try to shoot a rap video at a credit union. They dressed as bank robbers, wearing black face masks and carrying real guns.
Police arrived on the scene with guns drawn, thinking they had a real bank robbery on their hands.
“They said, ‘Is anybody in the back?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ ‘Are there guns?’ ‘Yes, but they’re not loaded, I swear.’ ‘Get on the ground, get on the ground!,’” Keezy said.
In the end, the rappers were questioned, and once they explained what they were doing, no one was charged with anything to do with bank robbery.
“With all the stuff that’s going on right now, man, we’re blessed not to be shot,” Keezy said.
Keezy admits the idea was bad, but he says it was done for good reasons. The rappers say they are eternally grateful to the police.
“Thank you all for not shooting me, my bros. Next time I promise we’ll let you know if we’re going to do something like that, and I commend you for standing by your badge,” Keezy said.
