Busta Rhymes video shoot in Greenpoint ends in murder
As news trickles in about the shooting of Busta's security guard during a video shoot at a Greenpoint studio on Green St., it's time to revive that age-old story about how he purchased three condos at the Gretsch in Williamsburg.
Whether he lived in one of them or purchased them to flip is subject to anyone's opinion, but one thing is true-- he may have had to suck up some losses on this real-estate-deal-gone-bad.
According to city records, he sold two of his units in December, 2005 for $635K and $515K. We're not sure how much these units sold for originally, but at these prices, it doesn't seem likely that it worth the trouble for Busta financially.
NB - As morbid and sad as this story is, we feel compelled to mention one quote from one of the thugs at the video shoot. A worker on the shoot asked said thug to nicely clear out of the way. The response was "Who the fuck are you to tell me to be quiet? I'm on parole, motherfucker!"
Well spoken, we ain't fucking with him.
