West Coast rapper Game's music video set was reportedly invaded by armed robbers this week who took thousands of dollars worth in cash and jewelry from a producer.
Details of what took place landed online Thursday (June 30).
The Game's new music video shoot with Chris Brown got gangsta -- for real -- when a producer was held up at gunpoint ... losing more than $12,000 in cash and jewelry ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us the armed robbery went down Tuesday in South Los Angeles -- and the producer, Mars, was sitting in his car with another person when 2 black male suspects walked up, pulled out a gun and demanded the goods. They made off in a gray Nissan Altima. (TMZ)
Despite being on-set, Game and Chris Brown did not witness the robbery.
According to sources on the music video shoot say Mars had walked about a block away from the set when the incident occurred. The suspects were said to have taken Mars' jewelry and wallet which contained a few thousand dollars. Chris Brown and The Game were on set at the time of the robbery, but were not near Mars when the robbery took place. A rep for Game said the set security guards were present on set, but no one at the shoot witnessed the incident. (FOX News)
Yesterday, Game tweeted about the music video but did not mention the robbery.
"Just wrapped the "Pot Of Gold" video shoot & @chrisbrown killed that sh*t !!! #CincinnatiHatOff to this lil n!gga a.k.a. #TalentedAsF*ck," he tweeted June 29th. (Game's Twitter)
The rapper is currently preparing his upcoming R.E.D. Album for an August 23rd release.
Game released "Purp & Patron," a 29-track mixtape, last January, but says that his fans' focus remains on the release of "R.E.D. Album," which has been pushed back for over a year. "I had a meeting with [Interscope head] Jimmy Iovine last week, and he told me the album was slated for the end of the summer, and it will not be pushed back any more than that. So we're looking towards late August," he says. (Billboard)
