HOUSTON – A filming of a rap music video turned violent early Saturday morning when a group of unidentified suspects opened fire on the production crew in front of a house just south of downtown, police said.

According to the Houston Police Department, at about 2:30 a.m. officers responded to a call of a shooting near Nettleton and Reeves streets. When they arrived, they found a man had been shot, and had the victim transported to Ben Taub Hospital in serious but stable condition.

Police said that a couple of unknown men opened fire of the production crew from across the street in a church parking lot. The rapper who was being featured in the music video was hit an unknown number of times.

The suspects fled on foot and remain at large. The name of the rap artist has not been released yet.

Question: is “stable condition” enough to earn street cred?

Judging from all of the of shootings going on out there, it would appear that Barack the Kenyan and his commie ‘RAT comrades have the whole damn country in a funk.

I like this one: "We need to stop calling them 'aspiring' rap artists. They should be called 'expiring' rap artists."

Shooting a video at 2:30 AM??? It may have just been a neighbor upset at the noise in the middle of the night.

Comments are not quite what I expected but then I would guess that not too many of the rappers friends comment at this particular on-line source.

Wonder if Sheila Jackson Lee sent him flowers and has gone to visit him yet.

The difference between an aspiring rapper and an expiring rapper isn’t very much.

My favorite Houston rapper shooting is Bushwick Bill getting shot in the eye by his girl. Yes, a one eyed midget rapper.

I’ve heard that Houston is now the black crime capital of Texas. Any truth to that? I know the mayor is totally incompetent and the Police Chief isn’t much better.

Also heard that Ray Nagin’s New Orleans crew, who fled from Katrina, are causing a lot of the trouble.

Time to call in the Texas Rangers.

Clearly Sheila Jackson Lee is gonna have to yell at her staff some more. Apparently there were cameras out there shooting a music video for members "of the community" and she was not in front of said cameras.

You know that Sheila's staff give her the worst ratings and don't stay long in the job?

If you notice the “gentleman” to his left on the cover is Scarface. His song is playing in Office Space when Michael Bolton locks his door. He is also the pimp Upgrayedd from Idiocracy. (the two D’s are for a double dose of his pimpin’)
