Wu-Tang Clan‘s RZA reportedly became aggressive with hospital staff while trying to get his son medical care at a Los Angeles hospital, so much so that the police were called.

According to TMZ, RZA rushed to an emergency room Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center seeking treatment for his son. The rapper and director then reportedly became angry over the medical staff’s handling of his son and even started yelling at medical personnel.

The police were called following RZA’s outburst but the rapper had calmed down by the time officers showed up. Police didn’t arrest anyone or issue a citation. It’s unknown what his son’s medical issue was.

Recently, it was announced that RZA will be writing and executive producing a TV series on the Wu-Tang Clan. Titled Wu-Tang: An American Saga, the 10-episode show will be based on the Wu’s origin story, as well as RZA’s books The Wu-Tang Manual and Tao of Wu.

The series is described as: “Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.”

“I’m delighted to be partnering with Hulu and Imagine to explore the vast story of the Wuniverse,” RZA said about the forthcoming series. “Wu-Tang through our music has always strove to inspire as we entertain. This opportunity to continue the Wu – Saga in a 10-episode series will exponentially increase our inspirational style of entertainment. In the immortal words of ODB ‘Wu-Tang is for the Children.'”
