Police in Atlanta, Ga. are investigating an armed robbery at former Bad Boy Records rapper Yung Joc’s studio, according to a report by WSBTV. The ambush and robbery resulted in $50,000 worth of missing equipment from the studio, which is located in a home on Boyd Avenue. Police said that the three men waited in the bushes for the caretakers of the studio to arrive around 5 a.m. this morning, and forced them into a bathroom and tied them up.
The two caretakers, a man and a woman, were able to escape to a friend’s house to call 911. They didn’t recognize the robbers, but detectives are hoping they may have left fingerprints on some of the items. Police also said the robbers planned to use the victims’ car to get away with some of the equipment, but decided to leave the vehicle at the studio.
Following the incident Yung Joc took to Twitter to comment, writing, “Just thankful they didn’t kill my ppl.”
Yung Joc signed with Polo Grounds/RCA in 2010 after being released from his dead end contract with Diddy’s Bad Boy label. He released the mixtape Ready to Fly earlier this year.
