Rapper Rich the Kid and his entourage were attacked on Tuesday afternoon in a famous West Hollywood studio, where Usher was also recording in at the time.

A member of the ATL native's crew was pistol whipped and mostly all of the men were individually taken for their jewelry and money.

Rich was outside when it went down, and it appears he was the target of the robbery.

The gunman, who has not been identified, opened fire as he ran away from the studio. Usher was inside the studio and not hurt while Rich was outside when it all happened.

Police have responded to the scene and are actively looking for the supects who made off with a large sum of cash and jewelry.

As TMZ points out, Rich had posted a photo holding a wad of cash earlier in the day.

Rich the Kid, a Queens-born rapper, dropped his debut album The World Is Yours previous year.

Thankfully, it is being reported that nobody was hit by the bullets which means that they are generally unharmed. "For motivational purposes only", he captioned it.
