Florida rapper Brisco was robbed at gunpoint in Miami recently, while inside a barbershop getting a fresh cut.
According to local news station WSVN, the rapper was getting a trim at a local Miami barbershop last Wednesday (July 29) when four robbers stormed in with their faces covered and ordered everyone to lie face down on the floor.
During the robbery, Brisco was reportedly pistol-whipped and robbed of $40,000 in jewelry, including a chain, watch, and bracelet. They also took cash and his SUV.
“There was a local rapper who had just left the photoshoot. He went to a barber shop to get his hair cut. They took a little bit more off the top then expected,” Miami Police Officer Jeffery Giordano told the news channel. “This robbery was off the chain. Four men entered the store, guns drawn, firing shots, luckily no one was hurt, robbing each individual that was in the barber shop. For a rapper to have his bling stolen, they might have well stolen that man’s heart. They took his car also. He had a Range Rover. The vehicle was recovered in another location.”
Police gave a general descriptions of four black males between the ages of 18 and 25.
They are seeking one suspect, who was sitting in corner of the barber shop on a cellphone before robbery took place. Officials said after everything was stolen, one of the subjects tapped that man and he ran out.
Following initial reports, Brisco responded, via a statement to XXL, claiming he was not assaulted in the crime.
“Contrary to some reports, I was not assaulted in the robbery that took place yesterday,” Brisco said. “It was a random robbery of a barbershop I was in and it really is just a case of me being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
