Hours before the attack, Rich the Kid posted a pic of himself on the 'gram holding stacks of cash along with the caption: "For motivational purposes only". Rich The Kid was reportedly outside during the shooting.

Police are investigating the attack and haven't made any arrests, nor identified the suspects. We're told the man who opened fire was running away from the studio when he started shooting behind him.

Two masked men reportedly entered the resident and demanded cash and jewelry from Rich and Tori Brixx, who is now pregnant with his child.
