On the video shoot for Megan Thee Stallion's "Hot Girl Summer" track, it looks like the Houston rapper might've encountered a minor bump in the road.

Last Friday, during Megan's video shoot in Hollywood Hills, the rapper received a visit from the Los Angeles Police Department. TMZ reports that Megan didn't have the proper permits. With short notice, Ty Dolla $ign, Nicki Minaj and Megan were able to secure a new location. Luckily, the musicians were able to get all the footage they needed to make the video worthwhile. As for fans, there are still no details on when the visual will be released.

Amazingly, "Hot Girl Summer" has made history as the first female rap collaboration to go No. 1 on the iTunes USA. Minaj posted the exciting news on social media.

"Yikes. Herstory in the making. should I run up on meg today & go live y'all? Or nah? Y'all deserve it for showing me how to go live with her that night y'all was mad aggy that night, cussing me out & s--t but I listened to y'all & look what happened to god be the glory. love you," Minaj wrote as her Instagram caption.

More recently, Megan spoke with PAPER regarding the success of her career. In the interview, the "Big Ole Freak" rapper explains how coming from a musical background helped fuel her success.

"I feel like off the strength that my mom was a rapper, and the music that her and my dad put in my ear as a child, it was bound to happen," she revealed. "Me watching her write and me watching her go in the studio and lay her verses down. Just to see how dedicated she was, that was normal to me. That just became the thing that I saw around my house."

She continued, "We bumping Pimp C, we listening to Three 6 all the time, we listening to Biggie. You know what I'm saying? I've always been a big fan of music. Just me growing up and turning into Meg Thee Stallion, this is a product of my environment."
