Bay Area rapper Zion I and film crew robbed at gun point while filming music video

- A Bay Area rapper says he and a film crew were robbed at gunpoint while filming a music video.

Zion I says they were working on a new music video for his song "Calm Down", when a person held a gun to the cameraman's head while another took the camera.

Zion I says the camera is worth $90,000. 

WARNING: Video uses graphic language

The robbery took place on July 10 in West Oakland, near Willow and 11th Streets. 

On his Facebook page, Zion I says, "We are lucky that no one on our set was killed, because others have not been as lucky".

He added, "My reason for filming in the heart of West Oakland and the storyline of the video written by director David Telles make it all the more ironic that we ended up being victimized". 

The rapper and his crew have started a GoFundMe page to help raise money to cover the insurance deductible and re-filming costs.
