Police arrested five people, including a security guard, on guns and drug possession charges on Saturday on the set of a music video shoot outside a Cypress Hills supermarket. The shoot appears to have been for the newly released French Montana single "Off the Rip," featuring verses from Nore and Montana's protege Chinx, murdered in a drive-by shooting in Queens in mid-May. Photos shot at the event show a crowd decked out in gear paying tribute to the late rapper. In attendance was a who's-who of New York rappers who were big in the early aughts, including Busta Rhymes, Juelz Santana, and Ja Rule. In a sweep of the gathering, the undercover cops found four guns, one of them an old-timey Derringer, and bags of weed and coke, as well as tablets of Molly. None of the rappers were arrested, and none have publicly commented about the situation.

The New York Post, which apparently can't tell the African-American Chinx apart from the Moroccan French Montana, reports:

Concerned area residents called the police around 6:15 p.m. after they saw the impromptu crowd of about 200 performers, extras, and gawkers milling around the parking lot of the Bravo Supermarket at the corner of Fulton and Linwood streets in Cypress Hills, cops said.

When they arrived, the plainclothes officers worked the throngs until they allegedly spotted what appeared to be a gun in the pants pocket of 35-year-old shoot security guard Frank Bartlett, police said.

They identified themselves to the 6-foot-11, 350 pound guard, he copped to carrying the 9mm Daewoo, and surrendered, sources said.

As word of the bust spread through the crowd, others started desperately trying to ditch their own contraband.

That allegedly didn't go so well for some. According to the Daily News, the arrests included "32-year-old Ronald James, who was seen passing a Derringer pistol to his girlfriend, Ebonee Eastmond, 27 — who was also arrested — and Edward Elkins, who had a semiautomatic pistol in a shopping bag between his feet, cops said." Another woman, "30-year-old Wendy Miranda, allegedly dropped a .32 caliber H&R revolver near a row of parked luxury cars including Rolls-Royces, Ferraris, and BMWs," according to the Post.
