Tyga's music video shoot shut down

Rapper Tyga was forced by police to shut down production on his new music video on Tuesday (11Nov14) after hundreds of fans showed up to appear in the promo.

The Rack City hitmaker posed a problem for the Los Angeles Police Department for the second day in a row after a crowd of more than 1,000 stopped by Tyga's Last Kings clothing store on Melrose Avenue.


Earlier in the day, Tyga took to Twitter.com inviting fans to watch him film the music video for his track 40 Mill - but the outcome was much more than he expected.


According to TMZ.com, the crowd soon grew out of control, and police moved in and forced Tyga to shut down the shoot amid concerns for the fans' safety.


Extra police were called in to thin out the audience on the busy West Hollywood street, but cops tell the gossip site there were no arrests.


Tuesday's police run-in follows an incident on Monday (10Nov14) when Tyga's vehicle was pulled over by officers for reckless driving in South Central L.A. while filming the same music video.


The rapper was put in handcuffs and eventually released, but his bodyguard was reportedly arrested for possession of a gun that was not registered in California.
