Usher, Rich The Kid, and their posse were attacked earlier today at a West Hollywood recording studio. Usher, another famous rapper, reportedly was in the studio while the attack occurred.

Rich The Kid was the victim of a robbery in Los Angeles again. According to TMZ, at least one bodyguard was severely pistol whipped while several entourage members were fired upon. The victims stated three male black suspects confronted them in the alley behind a business and demanded their money and jewellery.

They were physically assaulted, and as they left the scene one of the suspects began shooting. It is still unknown whether anyone in Rich's party was shot, but the Sheriff's Department did confirm to Variety that the fire department was called for treatment for injuries.

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