News broke a little late on this and details are still kinda’ sketchy, but Poe Boy artist Brisco was robbed at gunpoint last Wednesday in broad daylight a little before 1PM at a Liberty City barbershop – where his jewelry and Range Rover were taken. The vehicle was found a couple blocks away later in the afternoon, but those responsible made off with cash, jewelry and other possessions. Word is that Brisco is doing okay and wasn’t too badly hurt. But we hope he’s allright.

Rapper Brisco pistol-whipped, robbed at Miami barbershop
Armed men stormed a Miami barbershop last week, pistol-whipping rapper Brisco and stealing jewelry and his Range Rover.
Police are searching for four men who stormed the barber shop at 6301 NW Sixth Ave. last Wednesday.
Brisco left a photo shoot and got to the shop before 1 p.m. One man walked into the store, pretending to be a customer. The man spoke on his cellphone, telling whomever was on the line it was OK to come in. Three men, armed with handguns, went into the shop and told the customers to keep their heads down.
The men demanded Brisco’s car keys.
The robbers stole more than $35,000 worth of jewelry — including a yellow gold watch with diamonds, a chain and a yellow gold bracelet with diamonds. A Louis Vuitton wallet and more than $1,000 in cash was also taken. They fired three shots, striking no one, before running off.
Police later found the Range Rover at Northeast Second Avenue and 67th Street.
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.
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
