Tyga has been trying to resume his rap career since the whole Drakegate fiasco. Today was not the day to do it however, as the police halted production on his new music video and his bodyguard was whisked on away on an apparent gun charge.

Via TMZ:

Tyga was cuffed by a swarm of cops in South Central L.A. during a music video shoot.

The rapper was shooting a video in a Rolls-Royce. He was driving and there were other guys in the car.

The LAPD pulled him over and you see in the video Tyga up against a fence, surrounded by numerous officers and 6 cop cars.

One eyewitness says the traffic stop was for reckless driving … we’ve confirmed this with LAPD.

It’s unclear why Tyga was put in cuffs, but we’re told he was eventually released but his bodyguard was arrested … we’re told for possession of a gun that was not registered in California.

No “f the police” tweets from the estranged Young Money artist this time around though. He’s currently in the House of Blues on Sunset to announce his new tour with Chris Brown and Trey Songz.

Somewhere out there, Wiz Khalifa is scratching his purple head.
