The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating an incident at a downtown 7/11 when a rapper pulled a gun -- all of it caught on video.

The incident allegedly began with a difference of opinion as to the excitement of listening to the music of legendary rapper and civil rights activist Tupac Shakur.
"TMZ obtained this video of the altercation which went down shortly before 10 PM Friday in a 7/11 parking lot near downtown L.A. The person shooting the video says he asked Xan why he 'talked sh*t' about Tupac last year in an interview," the site noted.
