Nas EBK has been charged with terroristic threats and assault over a YouTube prank video that was filmed at a local grocery store.
Per Northjersey.com, the Bronx drill rapper (real name Nasir Valenzuela) was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Penns Grove on Tuesday (February 21) after filming the prank video at a ShopRite in Rochelle Park.
The prank, which was posted on Buba100x’s YouTube channel, follows EBK donning a red hoodie as he and Buba ask ShopRite shoppers odd questions and scream loudly.
Things gets out of hand once EBK snatches an employee’s hat. The disgruntled worker then begins to argue with Buba and EBK after the latter returns it. As tensions escalate, authorities claim the 19-year-old brandished a “scalpel-style knife.”
“Walk toward me again and I’ll violate you,” the rapper can be heard saying before kicking the man and running off.
Rochelle Park Police claimed that Nas EBK, Buba100x and the filmmaker fled the scene before authorities arrived. The video has been viewed over 430,000 times since it went live in January.
The rapper, who dropped his newest single “Demons” last December, was charged with possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, simple assault, terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He is currently in custody at Bergen County Jail.
A Gunna YouTube prank video recently got equally as out of hand and dissolved into nothing more than the impersonators making fun of the rapper for allegedly being a snitch.
The video starts off as a normal impersonator video, with a Gunna doppelgänger wandering around a mall trying to get fans’ attention. However, as people begin to take notice of fake Gunna’s presence, fans begin heckling him, with a few agitated mall-goers cussing him out for being a “rat.”
The DS4Ever rapper, who was released from jail in December after pleading guilty in the YSL RICO case, seemed to respond to the video by posting numerous laughing emojis in his Instagram Story on February 14 shortly after it went live.
