NYPD camera on Hot 97 studios

Daily News Exclusive

The Hot 97 radio studios at 395 Hudson St. in Manhattan.
Timeline of trouble

The NYPD is going to start filming real-life gangsta rap videos - by putting a surveillance camera outside violence-plagued radio station Hot 97, the Daily News has learned.

The decision was sparked by the wounding of a rapper last week in front of the hip-hop station's SoHo studios - the latest in a string of high-profile shooting incidents linked to Hot 97.

"We'll keep it in place until Hot 97 is evicted or cleans up its act," a police source told the News, adding that the camera will go up this week.

The camera, emblazoned with the NYPD logo, will be among the first in a planned wave of high-tech video recorders set to go up around the city.

But while most of the cameras are earmarked for high-crime areas and potential terror targets, this one will be specifically aimed at stemming rap-related gunplay in a generally safe, well-heeled neighborhood.

The latest violence erupted Wednesday night when rapper Jamal (Gravy) Woolard, 30, was shot in the butt outside Hot 97's Hudson St. studios by a hanger-on miffed the performer wouldn't let him sit in on a radio interview, cops said.

Woolard, who went through with the interview after being wounded, was treated at St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan and released. He has not cooperated with detectives.


When they get evicted, they should follow them there as well.

Fucking playacting gangsters.

When will people grow up and act like businessmen and not extras from the Sopranos.

Oh yeah, the landlord is a union and they're sick of the nonsense.
