Hip hop producer Scott Storch has been robbed at gunpoint outside a New York City hotel.

The music mogul, who has worked with stars like Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg, filed a police report after the incident, which took place early on Tuesday (20Aug13).

He claims he was leaving the New York Palace hotel on Madison Avenue when he was approached by two men with guns who told him to hand over his jewellery and cash.

Law enforcement sources tell Tmz.com Storch handed over a briefcase which contained over $4,000 (Gbp2,600) in cash along with several items of jewellery.

His Suv driver was also told to give the crooks his keys, so the robbers could make a clean getaway without being followed.
