"Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do" (commonly referred to as "GDKPRD") is a song by the British Rap act Goldie Lookin Chain from their Greatest Hits album. In August 2004, the song peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.[1] With the tagline "The gun is the tool, the mind is the weapon", in this track the band again satirised the American hip hop scene.

Music video[edit]

The video for the song features the band doing a mock police line-up and being chased on customised mobility scooters. The video is shot mostly in the town of Watford, England, featuring such local landmarks as the original 1970s concrete brutalist style shopping centre, the YMCA building and the spiral car park ramp visible from the ring road.
