HOUSTON – Twenty gang members are facing gun charges after police said they were brandishing weapons during a music video shoot at a Houston park earlier this year.
In March, two rappers, Emekwanem Biosah Jr, A.K.A. Maxo Kreme, and Warren Brown, A.K.A. NFL Cartell Bo, had a run-in with police while filming a rap video at Lakewood Park.
The rappers were filming at the park, which is next to Hillard Elementary School, at about the time school was being let out. Some students made it into the video.
Also in the video were about a dozen loaded guns, some of them stolen, according to police. The guns were being used as props and the extras holding the weapons were all documented street gang members and rappers, according to police.
When police arrived at the park, most of the people ran, leaving the weapons behind, according to police.
Some of them had open warrants and were arrested on the spot, police said.
