Subject: [az-raves] DJ Rap's Gear Stolen!!! Need Help!
Date: Wed, 20 Oct 2004 22:53:55 -0000
Charissa (DJ Rap) asked me to post this:
On Oct. 18 Josh NYNEX (Josh Atchley) from LA & Offworld Records broke
into Charissa's studio/home in LA and took the following items. There
is strong belief that they were sold to someone in AZ recently.
The items are listed below:
- 1 G4 Power Mac
- 1 G4 Power Book
- 1 Ipod
- 1 17 inch plasma display
- 1971 US Blond Fender Stratocaster Guitar (we feel he kept this item
Now here is the big problem. All of Charissa's songs for her upcoming
new album and lyrics she has been working on for both the new album
and other projects were on these computers, along with a variety of
personal items like photos, emails form family and friend and such.
I'm not going into how low this action is for someone claiming to be
a musician to steal from another is just shocking and repulsive.
Anyone who can offer any information please contact me (see below)
and I'll forward it on the Charissa. The fact that 4 years of her
life and artistic creation has vanished which in turn may deprive us
of ever hearing her new material is just sickening. She wouldn't be
so upset if it just a computer with some emails on it but this is
much more serious since those computer contained her blood, sweat and
I don't have to point out to some that this happened to BT a while
ago twice. Once he lost several finished songs that we will never
hear, however the second time someone returned all his items after
posts were made all over the internet. So we have hope Josh and the
person in possession of these items will do the right thing.
Shame on you Josh! Serious... Musicians stick together as family with
a unified mission.
leads and info to these missing items please send emails to
email@example.com , it will be kept private at your request.
PLEASE POST THIS EVERYWHERE POSSIBLE, ALERT ALL MUSICIANS, PAWNSHOPS,
MUSIC STORES AND MUSIC WEBSITES (INCLUDING THOSE WHO HAVE
MEMBERS/VIEWERS FROM THOSE STATES) IN CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA,
INCLUDING SURROUNDING STATES.
