South Florida rapper IV Leo Little recently released a music video that was filmed partly inside of a local police department, reportedly without the knowledge of the police.
The video begins with Leo Little getting into a fight with a convenience store clerk who insulted his mother. After a quick altercation, Leo Little can be seen sitting on the ground next to a Broward County Sheriff’s Office patrol car, with his hands behind his back, as if they were handcuffed.
Next, Leo Little and his entourage can be seen dancing around with a variety of guns, displaying very poor trigger discipline. In one scene, Leo Little hangs out of the passenger side window of a car swinging a handgun in the air. Then in another, he plays air guitar on what appears to be a shotgun.
Things get really interesting when Leo Little walks right through the front door of an empty Aventura Police Department, before he begins to dance around the lobby. Leo Little then looks into an office to see that no one is there, and begins jumping up and down, dancing on top of a desk.
The video, called “Bus,” was reportedly not approved by the Aventura Police Department, and the footage was actually shot about two years ago.
According to Aventura Police, they used to leave the front doors of the department open in case someone needed help at night. The offices were usually empty but there was a buzzer available if assistance was needed.
The department has since changed its after-hours policy and keeps the building secure at night, requiring visitors to ring a buzzer from the outside if the building.
Surprisingly, the cops were cool about the situation.
Police Maj. Michael Bentolila said that the rapper did not damage property or try to gain access to any sensitive areas. Bentolila also pointed out that Leo Little did not enter the department with a weapon.
“There was no damage. It would have been petty on our part. He didn’t try to gain access. He just came in and acted the fool,” Bentolila said, according to the Miami Herald.
Steadman Stahl, president of Miami-Dade’s Police Benevolent Association, agreed that the act was not criminal, but he was still not pleased that it happened, saying that measures were taken to prevent similar things from happening in the future.
“It’s hubris, but in the age we live in, a video can be made in just a couple of minutes. And with today’s heightened security, now you have to secure that area,” Stahl said.
Back in 2014, two former inmates were able to return to the Nassau County jail, in New York, to film a music video that mocked the prison system. The video called “I Be About It” featured a number of artists including Dj Self, Maino, Vado, Uncle Murda, and Big Bz.
