Tekashi69 fires his entire team and cancels US tour, days after shots were fired during music video shoot


Tekashi69 has claimed he has fired his entire team and cancelled his US tour.

The reports come a day after a suspect, Anthony Jamel Ellison, was arrested for the kidnapping and robbery of the rapper in July; Ellison used to be part of Tekashis crew and was fired after the infamous LAX brawl.

I am letting everybody know I cancelled my whole tour, the American dates is not happening, its not going down… I fired everybody in my team, I fired my manager, booking agent, PR, publicist, he said.

He also warned venues that if they do book any shows from anyone claiming to represent Tekashi, they will be stealing your money.

Whoever is booking shows for Tekashi69 is stealing your fucking money… if you are not on the phone with me do not book that show, its not me, he added.

Last week shots were fired at a house where Tekashi69 was filming a music video with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj.

The stars were filming a video at an $80 million estate in Beverly Hills on Thursday night when gunshots were reportedly heard ringing out.

According to TMZ, police received a call at 10.25pm and rushed to the shoot; a witness told the website that eight shots were fired in an apparent drive-by.

It came three months after shots were fired near the set of Tekashis video with 50 Cent; the rappers were filming in Brooklyn when a car is believed to have shown up, with one of its occupants firing off 11 shots.
