Police are investigating reports that rapper DMX and his crew robbed a man at gunpoint early Sunday morning.
via NY Daily News:
A 21-year-old man told Newark cops that DMX and the rapper’s entourage fleeced him for $3,200 worth of cash at an Exxon station just after midnight, according to Newark Police spokesman Ronald Glover.
The victim told police that the conflict began after he recognized the rap star at the filling station on Highway 21 and the two began to talk about music.
During the conversation, a member of the rapper’s entourage pulled out a gun, and demanded the victim’s money, the man told police.
After the man pulled the huge wad of cash out of his pocket, DMX allegedly grabbed the money and fled in a fleet of four black Cadillac Escalades, the man told police.
The man followed the caravan close enough to get the license plate number for one of the vehicles.
No one has been arrested in the ongoing investigation, police said.
DMX, who recently made a comical appearance as a jailbird in Chris Rock’s film, “Top Five,” was scheduled to be in Newark Saturday night for a concert at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
Why on earth would a 21-year-old be carrying $3,200 worth of cash that late at night anyway? We know DMX is a little crazy, but there’s something a little crazy about this story as well.
