Hip-Hop producer Scott Storch got a surly greeting when he got to New York City earlier today (August 20). Upon arriving in the Big Apple, Storch says he was robbed at gunpoint in front of his hotel.
Storch, who produced Fat Joe’s “Lean Back,” filed a police report claiming he was approached by two armed men when he was getting into his vehicle. Scott Storch said the two men demanded, “Give us all your jewelry and cash or you’re dead.” Police officers told the press that Storch did was he was told and handed over a briefcase that held about five thousand dollars and several pieces of jewelry. Storch says in total he lost more than $100,000. The two armed men also told the driver of Storch’s vehicle to give them the keys Storch couldn’t immediately drive away and the driver did as he was told.
All in all, the robbers ran off with the producer’s possessions without having to use their firearms. Scott Storch did say he gave chase to the guys, but they got away from him.
