Rapper Yung Joc has had $50,000 (£31,250)-worth of hi-tech equipment stolen from his studio in Atlanta, Georgia following a robbery on Saturday night (18Dec11).
The It's Goin' Down hitmaker, real name YaMar Robinson, was not present when two robbers pounced on a man and a woman who had arrived at the building and forced them inside.
The two victims were then tied up as the bandits ransacked the studio, but they managed to break free and escaped to a friend's home nearby to call police.
Cops are now investigating the incident, although they have yet to make any arrests in the case.
The two hostages were unharmed.
