Papoose Facing Legal Action Over Use of Ambulance Crew in Video
Papoose is facing legal action after it was determined that he tricked a Brooklyn ambulance crew into appearing in his street video for the song “Ambulance.” In the clip, which was directed by filmmaker Jordan Tower and is believed by many to be aimed at fellow Brooklynite and Pap rival Uncle Murda, two EMT’s are shown trying to save the life of an injured man in the back of a Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corp. vehicle. According to the New York Daily News, Rocky Robinson, founder of the Corp., says that Pap misrepresented the nature of the video he was shooting. "His people told us the video would be about the neighborhood and how we respond to save lives," Robinson told the News. "We don't want to be a part of something where somebody gets hurt." Robinson went on to say that he plans on filing a suit against Pap, despite his belief that the rapper "probably hasn't got much, but we'll sue anyway. Our image is everything to us."
