In February 2006, Busta Rhymes’ bodyguard Israel Ramirez was slain during an early morning video shoot. Authorities believe violence started when Tony Yayo and a rival record producer got into an argument that spilled outside of the filming area. Gun fire erupted and Ramirez, who was on hand to handle Busta’s jewelry, was struck in the hail of bullets. Though there were reportedly many witnesses, including Busta himself, no one came forth to name a shooter. The murder of Israel Ramirez remains unsolved.
