Maybe he’s humming a different tune now.
A rapper and fashion mogul out of Philly found out the streets of New York are no place for Hummer with a roof-mounted long gun — even if it’s just an air rifle that shoots promo T-shirts.
Christopher Stoney, 41, was driving his 2006 Hummer along 9th Avenue near West 34th Street in Manhattan Saturday afternoon when the vehicle’s massive, four-foot-long air rifle somehow caught the eye of cops.
The officers also took note of the designs plastered on the side of the military-green vehicle: a trio of yellow bullets and the words “Warchyld” and “Wardrobe.”
The NYPD pulled the Hummer over at West 16th Street, where Stoney, who had two passengers, told them Wardrobe is his clothing company.
It’s a company-owned vehicle, he explained, used to launch T-shirts during promotional events.
Unmoved, cops hauled Stoney, a New Jersey resident, and his passengers to the Midtown South Precinct, where he was ticketed for unlawful possession of an air rifle.
The device was even removed from the Hummer and vouchered as evidence — which the bummed out rapper sullenly documented on his Instagram.
“I’m sorry to say but the NYPD is about to confiscate my cannon off my truck. This s–t is crazy right now, man. They’re taking it,” he said in the clip.
No word on whether cops at least got a T-shirt for their trouble — and if so, what caliber shirt.
