Cash Money Records associate Brisco has addressed recent reports and footage that shows him being robbed at gunpoint while in a Florida barbershop.
Despite claims of being pistol-whipped, Brisco said the incident had nothing to do with his rap image or associations.
"Contrary to some reports, I was not assaulted in the robbery that took place yesterday," Brisco said via his representative referring to last month's incident. "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." (XXLMag)
The incident took place in a Miami barbershop, according to police reports.
The City of Miami Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a Barber Shop located at 6301 NW 6 Avenue. The robbery occurred on July 29, 2009, at approximately 12:51 PM. A local rapper, "Brisco" after a photo shoot, went into the shop for a hair cut when four black men invaded the store with hand guns terrifying four customers. One offender pistol-whipped the rapper and demanded his car keys before taking his Range Rover. (Miami New Times)
Police eventually recovered the vehicle and released details on the robbers' appearances.
Authorities had this description of the robbers: a man with full-sleeve tattoos on both forearms, wearing a red shirt and blue jean shorts, a baseball hat and Timberland boots; a man in a long, white T-shirt, gray sweat shorts and a baseball hat; a man with a beard, wearing a white T-shirt, black pants, a black hat, white sneakers, striped black-and-white boxers; and a heavy set man in a black shirt, black hat, black pants and black sneakers. Police are also looking for a customer who was inside the store during the robbery. (Miami Herald)
